We have a purchased part with a safety stock. An existing PO will cover requirements, but it’s delivery date is far out and the vendor cannot expedite. We will fall below the safety stock.
MRP display is telling us to place a new PO, which we do not need to do.
MRP detail inquiry shows this.
MRP exceptions screen does show we need to expedite the PO, but since we cannot, this part will continue to show up on MRP display telling us to place another PO.
Is this the general process?
Do not create new POs from MRP display until you look at the detail inquiry to ensure an existing PO does not already exist?
Is there any way to drop the part from MRP display other than changing the date on the PO to say it will arrive earlier (which it will not)?
