E9.2 MRP Branch Plant Circular Reference


Well Known Member
We are implementing a storage warehouse where it will be both a push and a pull warehouse. We will be storing raw materials to send to our manufacturing plant. Then the finished goods will be made at the manufacturing branch. These finished goods will be sent back to the storage warehouse as a holding place for our distribution center. I've researched this before in 9.1 and believe I can get around the issue by running MRP twice - the second time I do not clear out messages. Is this still the case in 9.2 or are there any other suggestions?
We do exactly what your plan is with a 3PL warehouse: run MPS to create work orders based on forecast/customer demand at the 3PL and then MRP to define raw material needs for transfer from the 3PL. Your research is accurate.
