3244487 - MRP creates schedule line with quantity more than Schedule Agreement target quantity.

Symptom

MRP creates schedule line with quantity more than Schedule Agreement target quantity.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud 

Cause

It is standard behavior that MRP will not take target quantity into account with below considerations.

1. The scheduling agreement for the update is only read during the update. The decision on the type of order proposal has already been made at this point.
If reading target quantity in the decision on the type of order proposal, the system would have to read the scheduling agreement again a second time at an earlier stage. This would cause performance losses.

2. If the target quantity is exceeded, this could possibly be a reason for renegotiating the scheduling agreement with the vendor. It is certainly no reason to change the vendor. It is therefore not a problem if the scheduling agreement is scheduled beyond the target quantity.

Resolution

A maximum quantity can be considered by means of the quota arrangement in the source determination.
