MRP and Warehouse Transfer


We have two locations. Say A and B. Some components are produced and received in location B and transferred to the location A for final product assembly.
We are having problem in MRP Lite. There are lines that are on supply/demand. When we go into waterfall, it turns out that we do not need to order more. We just need to do a warehouse transfer, when the production of component at location B completes.
We now have to spend a lot more hours in MRP verifying which supply/demand lines are genuine and which are warehouse transfer cases.

Please see example: PRT102-103-3PS-1. This item is showing in MRP Lite supply/demand. But if you look deeper at QOO, quantity available, waterfall and demand, you will see that somebody has mistakenly ordered this part 3 times and it is still showing up in MRP lite.

Best Regards,


So the system is working how it should, supply and demand signals are warehouse specific, we do always urge purchasing to check the waterfall before buying, but I think there is one thing that will help here a ton, and that is showing these columns on your MRP:

Every user will have to set those to show on their profile, but that should be enough to trigger purchasing to do a warehouse transfer vs a PO.

Let me know your thoughts.
