No dependent demand for phantom with planning strategy 59


Hi Gurus,

Need your help with this scenario.

BOM structure

BOM Level

0 Header material (KMAT) A MRP type (PD)

1 Phantom material (HALB) P LRP type (X0) Planning strategy 59

2 Component of header material (HALB) C1

Dependent demand for phantom material is not consuming the phantom assembly forecast. Expectation is that a planned order for material A will create a demand for the phantom material which will consume the forecast. We can see the dependent demand generated for the phantom in ECC but not in APO. Because dependent demand is missing in APO no forecast consumption at the phantom assembly level takes place. I would see dependent demand at component level for the planned order of material A but why we cannot see dependent demand for phantom.

Configuration values are seamlessly flowing to planned order for material A in APO.

All IMs are in place. Queue is clear.

Can you please advise are there any specific setting in APO that I need to check in order to see dependent demand for the phantom.

Thanks in advance,
