Dear Experts,

Your help reagrding the following problem would be much appreciated.

I am working for a consumer goods company who use multi-level production BoM's. APO sends in the finished goods order into SAP and the lower level semi-finished items are plan using MRP withi R/3.

The problem that I want to overcome is how, based upon a dependant quantity create multiple procurement proposals (inhouse procurement) i.e. planned  orders that are of equal size, but not exeeding the maximum lot size for the order.

For example, 5,000 Kg of the FG is required. This in turn requires 5,000 kg of the semi finished material which is made in mixes. The maximum mix size is 1,500 Kg. The plant wants MRP to generate 4 palnned orders of 1,250 Kg and NOT 3 orders for 1,500Kg and 1 for 500 Kg.

Any help would be much appreciated.
