Key that the system uses to adjust the order proposal quantity to deliverable units.



In Customizing, enter a threshold value from which the system should round up to the next value per deliverable unit:

  • If the requirements value exceeds the first threshold value, the system always rounds up to the next multiple of the level found
  • If the requirements value falls below the first threshold value, the system copies the original requirements value.

Two other types of rounding exist:

  • Dynamic rounding profile:
    These profiles are used to round up quantities to logistical units of measure (for example, layers). The contents of a logistical unit of measure does not have to be know when creating the rounding profile. It is determined by the master data from the material master.
  • Rounding profile with quantity to be added/subtracted
    With these profiles, the given quantity is changed either by adding a percentage or subtracting a percentage.

Only static rounding profiles are taken into account in requirements planning. Neither dynamic rounding profiles not quantity addition/ subtraction are taken into account.


A material's base unit of measure is 1 unit; the purchase order is to be delivered in layers (1 layer corresponds to 5 units) or in pallets (1 pallet corresponds to 8 layers which contains 40 units).

You maintain the profile as follows:
From a requirements of 2 units, the system is to round up to 5; from a requirement of 32 units, the system is to round up to 40.

This results in the following order proposal quantities:
Requirement from 1 -> 1        requirement from 31 -> 30
Requirement from 2 -> 5        requirement from 32 -> 40
Requirement from 6 -> 10    requirement from 74 -> 80
Requirement from 7 -> 10


If no rounding profile has been entered, the system uses the rounding value entered in the material master record for the planning run.
