Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supply Planning work center.
  2. Go to the Products view.
  3. Open Advanced Filter and enter the relevant Product ID and Supply Planning Area.
  4. Choose Open.
  5. In the Product Planning Details screen, you click the Run Planning button, and select either the option Single or Multi-Level BoM (or you select the New Planning Proposal button).
  6. Then you encounter the error message: Production model for Product ID on Date for quantity not found.

Note: When you create the Planning proposal manually by using the New Planning Proposal button, the error will appear after you enter Quantity and Date.


The quantity of the Maximum Lot Size as Y (Y equals 10,000ea for example) in the Release Planning Model (RPM), however to run planning for a quantity (X equals 10,001ea for example) which is more than the maximum lot size Y is needed.

Note : The same logic applies for Minimum Lot Size as well where the planning quantity should not be less than the maintained value.

Also note that the system behaves in this manner when the planning procedure in the Material Master is Manual Planning or Empty. The behavior will change based on the Lot-Sizing Method used in planning procedure Demand-Driven Planning or Consumption-Based Planning on case to case basis.


Please change the maximum lot size in your Production Model and release it for planning and execution by following the below steps.

  1. Go to the Planning and Production Master Data work center.
  2. Select the Production Model view.
  3. Find and select the relevant production model.
  4. Choose Edit.
  5. In the Production Model screen, go to the General tab.
  6. Here change the Maximum Lot Size to a quantity as per your requirement.
  7. Choose Release Production Model drop down and then select For Planning and Execution.

Note: If you use new planning proposal button, then enter quantity less than maximum lot size or quantity more than minimum lot size as a temporary work-around.
