Mahesh: You can easily prevent MRP from planning these Items. Just change the Item's Order Policy Code to a blank which will indicate to MRP not to plan the Item. You can access the Order Policy Code using Facility Planning Data Maintenance (MRP140). Take care!

I would like to know how we can avoid replinishment for these components when MRP/MPS is run because of wrong forecast for its parent item. is it possible to avoid replinishment by using new item type code with manufacturing flag set to 0 (Zero). we are using BPCS version 6.0.02. Your help is appreciated. Mahesh MN Mindtree Consulting --------------------------------- Talk is cheap. Use Yahoo! Messenger to make PC-to-Phone calls. Great rates starting at 1¢/min.
