Define period split for automatic split

The period split determines the type of period split for automatically splitting the planned independent requirements. Automatic splitting is only possible if the planned independent requirements were created using a reference.
You must make sure that the following three steps have been carried out before you can automatically split the independent requirements:

1. Maintain the period split for the automatic splitting.
2. Assign period split to reference type or to MRP group (in the workstep "Assign version and split for automatically splitting the reference" or "Assign period split to MRP group").
3. Create planned independent requirements using a reference that has been allocated a period split in the above step.

The system proceeds as follows when automatically splitting planned independent requirements:

Weekly requirementsare automatically split, whereby the system first reads the entry in the column "W in T". The number of weeks entered in this field is split into daily quantities. Thus, the system creates daily quantities.

Monthly requirements are automatically split, where the system first reads the entry in column "W in D". The number of weeks entered in this field is split into daily quantities. Then the system reads the entry in the column "No.of weeks" and creates the number of weekly quantities entered here.

Moreover, you can assign a distribution function. This means that you can define the percentage of the quantity that is to be produced according to a certain percentage of the production time depending on the period to be split.

Activities

Maintain the period split for the automatic split.

Further Notes

The allocation of the reference type is mafe in step "Allocate version and split for automatic split of the reference".

Note that the period split for automatic splitting is maintained independently of the plant. The distribution strategy in the period split, on the other hand is plant-specific. If you want to control the automatic split using the MRP group, the distribution strategy and the MRP group must both be valid in the same plant.
