SAP ERP Manufacturing - Production
Planning (SAP PP): MRP: User exit key &
User exit parameter
Posted by Michael Golden Sep 10, 2013
This final section of the planning run parameters requires the use of a standard SAP user exit keys and
parameters. The user exit keys are basically the company specific field used for grouping or planning similar
materials for the planning run. User exit parameters are the actual values found in the field for the given
materials.
To begin using the user exit key functionality, you must activate user exit M61X0001 with a programming key
typically performed by one of your ABAP programmers. Once activated, you define the key(s) to be used for
company specific MRP planning runs. It affords control of the materials selected for the planning run using
your own predefined key and the associated values for the key. With this user exit, the total planning run of

MRP, master production scheduling (MPS), or long-term planning (LTP) can be limited to materials that meet
the predefined company specific criteria.

Typical examples found using the user exit key and parameters to plan like materials are:
MRP Groups,
MRP Controllers,
MRP Types,
Material Types,
Procurement Types

Once the user exit key is activated, you are then able to select the given keys from the planning run transaction
of MDBT as an example. Then you identify the user exit parameters for the planning run. These parameters
should be values from the fields contained within the material master. This affords materials to be planned
together based upon the material master field defined.

For example, when setting up plant 0001 for the planning run, we may want all raw materials to be planned
separately from all other material types in use. Assuming all raw materials (ROH) are externally procured, we
can set procurement settings specific to these material types.

For other material types for in house production, we would set a different planning run variant specific to semi-
finished (HALB) and finished goods (FERT) materials.

This is a nice enhancement to use for your planning run to allow you plan materials within certain
groups under a plant or even using the scope of planning. This way you can have different
settings for each group based upon the particular needs of your organization. You get additional
control youre your planning run without much additional cost from both programming and
configuration.

@Vivek: I am not a programmer, so the exact code I am unable to provide. I would imagine you can find that
out here on SCN or SAP Notes for M61X0001.

In last screen shot MRP Run has done for material type FERT & HALB.
what changes has to be done in below program, so that MRP Run for two material type can be done as per last
screen shot.

In Functional module of M61X0001

MRP Run for Material type-004 (user exit key)
WHEN '004'.
l_dismm = uxpar+0(4).
IF l_dismm IS INITIAL.
EXIT.
ENDIF.
IF mt61d-dismm <> l_dismm.
no_planning = 'X'.
ENDIF.
