Plant wise Document Types with different Number Ranges for MRP PR’s

Hello SAP Friends,

Introduction

In this blog Post, we are going to achieve the different document types and the number range for MRP generates PR’s for each plant.

Different number range need for standard PR Document type “NB” read below SAP Blog Post (it already posted by one of our friends)

https://blogs.sap.com/2014/07/10/plant-wise-number-ranges-for-mrp-prs/

Here we are going to explain the different document types with different number ranges for MRP PR’s.

Solution

Step-1

Define a new PR Document Types

IMG path: Material Management->Purchasing->Purchase Requisition->Define Document Types

Create a new PR document type by Copying “NB” document type then only all dependent data will copy.

Step-2

Define a new number range

IMG path: Material Management->Purchasing->Purchase Requisition->Define Number Ranges                       (TCode – OMH7)

(or)

IMG path: Production->Material Requirements Planning->Number Ranges->Define Number Ranges for Planning Run     (TCode – OMDN)

Select ‘Intervals’ under ‘Purchase Requisitions’. Click on ‘Change interval’ button. From the next window click on ‘New item’ icon and define the new number range there with a proper sequence.

Step-3

Create MRP group for each plant and assign a PR document type

IMG path: Production->Material Requirements Planning->MRP Groups->Carry out overall Maintenance of MRP Groups

Create the MRP group by giving “Plant” and “MRP Group name” and assign PR document types by clicking “Scheduling/Document Type” under the External Procurement heading

Step-4

Define MRP group for each Material Type

If we define MRP group for each material type then we avoid the manual intervention of maintaining in each Material Master.

IMG path: Production->Material Requirements Planning->MRP Groups->Define MRP Group for Each Material Type

Click “New Entries” then define MRP group by providing Material Type, Plant and MRP Group

Step-5

Assign the number range for Purchase Requisition

IMG path: Production->Material Requirements Planning->Number Ranges->Define Number Ranges for Planning Run

Select ‘Number ranges’ under ‘Purchase Requisitions’. All the plants will be listed down there and will show the default number range assignment for the planning run. Go to the change mode and Select the particular plant and edit the number range. Save the changes.

RUN MRP and check the results

Prerequisites – Set all necessary PP Master data

You can see MRP generate PR’s with different document types and the number range for each plant

Eg: PR#41000000 is generated for plant-1000 with “ZN1” document type

PR#51000000 is generated for plant-2000 with “ZN2” document type

Note: This configuration will overwrite the PR Number Range assigned in document type and default document type for requisition in PP (refer below screenshot)

I hope you will also have a great time at SAP. I would be happy if you could share your experience with us! Looking forward to your comments 😊
