Converting Planned Orders into Purchase Requisitions in the Background


As of release 4.0 you can also convert planned orders into purchase requisitions in the background.
This is particularly useful if you use the creation indicator (2) Purchase requisitions in opening period in the planning run. The system creates purchase requisitions in the opening period but outside the opening period, the system creates planned orders. The planned orders must be converted into purchase requisitions in time so that purchasing receives the purchase requisitions in time. To ensure that this occurs you can use conversion in background .

To do this proceed as follows:

In the variant, you define the plant, MRP controller and until which opening date conversion is to occur.
You define whether dispatching is to occur once or periodically and enter until which opening date dispatching is to be carried out.
