2490226 - MRP Live on HANA does not Consider Opening Period


"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."

In classic MRP transaction codes MD01/MD02/MD03, parameter "Creation indicator for Purchase Requisitions" can be set as 2:Purchase requisitions in opening period. This means classic MRP creates purchase requisitions within the opening period and planned orders outside the opening period. However, MRP Live (transaction code MD01N) on HANA does not consider opening period. It always creates purchase requisitions for external procurement materials.
