Exclude Intercompany incoming demand from MRP.

Below document is based on the question I have seen in SCN regarding excluding incoming intercompany PO from MRP.

When we set the MRP Dep. Requirement as 1 in MRP 4 view,  it will not consider that particular dependent Item in MRP and will not propose any requirement for that item.

Suppose if we have enough stock of any particular Item in BOM of any finished product and we don’t want that item to be planned in MRP we can exclude it by using below settings.


The above case is one where we can use this setting, but I found this setting useful in below mentioned case also, where we can exclude any particular incoming demand, especially in an MTS scenario .

Let say we have Make to Stock intercompany scenario with same company code and two different plants, where one is manufacturing and the other is the trading plant. Where we manufacture the product in one plant and sell it to another plant within same company code.

In this case, we need to create STO from receiving a plant to supplying plant, i.e. from trading to the manufacturing plant.

For Example :  Material Number: 5009, Planning strategy used 10 (MTS).


Plants  : Manufacturing Plant – 1000 and Trading Plant is 1100.

In this case we are manufacturing 5009 finished product in 1000 and supplying it to 1100 against STO or sales order raised.

MD04 View for the above requirement.


Once we run the planning it will create planned order for the above requirements /wp-content/uploads/2016/06/4_981877.png

Now let say we have requirement order from 1100 plant,

Below screen shot shows the planned order created for incoming order 4500001266.


But , as in this case, we don’t want MRP to consider this incoming order (should be excluded during MRP run).

In MRP 4 Set option 1 in  MRP dep. requirement field for planning plant in 1000.


Now if we run the MRP for the same the material , we can see in below screenshot the requirement which is generated earlier is not there. Which has been excluded from MRP.
