Subject: [MAPICS-L] MRP/VPi Question

We have a scenario with two warehouses:

P - Production which is a planning warehouse is where we typically generate MOs and POs for components.

S - Shipping which is a where we place our customer orders (selling warehouse), is not configured as a planning warehouse, and is where we place our POs for purchased end items. S is configured with P as the primary planning warehouse.

If we configure S as a planning warehouse to allow us to use MRP/VPi to trigger for purchased items that are not configured in P will we have any issues with continuing to plan for the produced items in P? We would rather not create balance records in P for items that will never be used in our production process but of course want to ensure that we aggregate demand for manufactured items between our selling and production warehouse.

Hopefully the scenario is clear and I'm sure some of the experts here can provide feedback on things too look for in testing,
