3486673 - MRP - Automatic source determination logic if multiple purchasing info records are available


The business need is to understand the system logic when MRP is selecting a specific Purchasing Info Record in case there are several Purchasing Info Records with active auto-sourcing indicator and with identical parameters.


SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud


If several purchasing info records exist, MRP selects the one in priority:

  • purchasing info record with given plant
  • purchasing info record with the smaller supplier number (LIFNR)
  • purchasing info record with the smaller purchasing organization (EKORG)
  • purchasing info record with the smaller purchasing group (EKGRP).

If there are still multiple matches, then the system selects the info record with the:

  • most recent validity end date
  • latest creation date
  • highest info record number.
