    pegging information has not been calculate for [item] in this plan

    Christoph Carsten
      Hello planners -

      we ran across a strange thing today. We have an item in our unconstrained MRP with multiple demands and resulting supplies.
      The last demand line (Sales Order MDS) shows pegging information has not been calculate for [item] in this plan - and only this line.
      The item is set for End Assembly/Hard Pegging, the plan options have pegging enabled, and it works for all other demands.
      Any idea why one demand line is excluded from the pegging calculation?

      Thanks,
      Christoph

          On the surface, the item seems to have its supplies balanced to the demands – 9 sales order demands, and 9 supplies (planned orders and non-standard work orders).

          A look under the hood shows some interesting things:
          • The first non-standard work order is linked to a specific project (we use Seiban manufacturing).
          • There is no demand for that project. That leaves the above work order hanging – it cannot be used for anything else, only this project.
          • This work order also has an exception message “Items with excess inventory in a project/task” – makes total sense
          • The last demand cannot peg to the existing work order, hence the somewhat misleading “pegging information has not been calculated in this plan” message
          • The item shows one more interesting exception called “Demand quantity is not satisfied” – which is somewhat true.

          The immediate solution is to take the project number off the work order. The next plan run has relinked all supplies and demands as needed.

            we found the solution ourselves. Let me know if you have any other comments, or if you are interested in starting a dialogue on Seiban manufacturing.
