Mahesh, To have MPS/MRP ignore/not plan selected items within your database you simply leave the "Order Policy Code" blank in the Item Master (IIM/IORDP) or Facility Planning Record (CIC/ICORDP). Remember, the Item Master is a universal record and the Facility Planning Record is not. If you have multiple facilities, you will have to change just the Facility Planning records that you want to address. Frederick C. Davy, CPIM, PMP Business Systems Analyst Interface Solution, Inc.
