|missing part (MM-IM)|
Material in respect of which:
a) The missing parts check has been activated, and
b) The system has discovered - at the time of the posting of a normal goods receipt or other type of inward movement or at the time of a transfer posting - that in the past it has not been possible to cover requirements thereof as determined by Material Requirements Planning.
When it discovers such a stock shortage (requirement undercoverage) situation deriving from the past, the system issues a warning message and sends an e-mail to the responsible MRP controller in the plant.
