type when entering independent requirements Strategy groups are only necessary for the materials for which
independent demand will be placed.
In the make to stock environment; procurement can be executed prior to the
actual sales demand being reveived. True False.
MTS planning strategies 10 and 11 do not consider customer orders so they
are not displayed on the stock requirements list. True False.
With MTS strategy 40 (Planning with final assembly) , the final assembly
can not be completed until the receipt of a sales order. True False.
If you designate backward/forward consumption with a backward period
of 30 days and forward period of 20 days, the system will consume past
requirements for a period of 30 calendar days before consuming any future
requirements. True False.
If you do not review the exception messages or capacity prior to planning the
entire BOM, than MPS is not a step you need in your planning process? True False.
If an item is marked as an MPS item you can not plan down to its required
raw material True False.
The planning time fence is only a function of MPS? True False.
Your planners will not attempt to reschedule out a procurement element
(delay) if its less than three days early. This will simply cause too much
confusion with vendors. Where would this be defined? Schedule Margin Key Safety time Tolerance value Min Queue time Vendor delay factor Withdrawl period.
Dynamic safety stock shows up as an MRP elements throughout the horizon? True False.
Where is the tolerance value maintained? Material Master Routing Reference operation set MRP Group.
If a safety time of 2 days has been specified, the requirement date is brought
forward 2 days. True False.
For material planning purposes, what controls the relationship between
plants? Plant Master GR Processing Time Transportation Lanes Process Models Schedule Margin Key.
Assume you two buildings on the same physical grounds. Close proximity
to each other. Each building has been configured as a plant. If one plant
produces a component that the other needs for their manufacturing process,
how could this be modelled in SAP ERP? Stock transfers between the plants Trucks and forklifts Withdrawl from another plant Set the procurement type to E.
The distribution key is entered on what master data object(s)? Material Master Production Version BOM Header BOM Item Routing Work center.
If a distribution is used the material must be distributed equally among the
individual time periods. True False.
If the procurement type allows both in-house production and external
procurement, the MRP is always based on external procurement. True False.
Planned orders always generate production dates? True False.
If a material had to cure for a specific time period before it could be passed
to the next operation, what time would be most appropriate to model this in
SAP ERP? Curing time Drying time Wait time Sit around time Queue time.
For BOM explosion in MRP, you must set the BOM status in the BOM
header so that it is active for MRP. True False.
System can create a production order even if it does not find any selection
version or does not find any appropriate selection version. True False.
The explosion dates of the BOM and the routing are identical. True False.
What criteria might planning use to determine a BOM for a material
produced in-house? Lot Size Explosion Date Alternative BOM Production Version All of the above.
Quota arrangements may be used to split procurement elements between
what types of sources? External vendors Other Plants In house Manufacturing Safety Stock All of the above.
A material may be both In House Production and Procured Externally. True False.
Quotas always determine a source using the cumulative quantities and not
split strictly based on percentages. True False.
Discontinuation replaces materials when the demands are from sales orders. True False.
In dependent/parallel discontinuation all materials are replaced when their
inventory levels reah zero. True False.
What are two types of discontinuation? Aggregate Parallel Partial Simple Disaggregate.
Would you use discontinuation functionality if you were discontinuing the
use of a material but not replacing it with another material? Yes No.
Unrestricted use stoock is the only stock considered in the planning run. True False.
Inventory in the quality inspection stock is available for planning. True False.
