MRP Strategy '52' - Demand not flowing from Finished good to Sub assembly/ components



I have a requirement where client don't want to produce finished good until the actual sales order comes but at the same time they want to produce the semi finished good and procure the raw materials in advance (to reduce the lead time). (its a make to stock production but only thing they want to start production for FG only once they receive the sales order and they don't want to hard allocate the stock to a particular sales order after production (Like in Make to Order)

Now for this I have used Planning strategy "52" for my finished good, where i entered the forecast at FG level. I used planning strategy "40" at sub assembly and raw material level.

Now after MRP run, i am getting the planned order for FG with order type "VP" (Independent requirement) which is correct (as system won't allow to convert the planned order to production order until the sales order come).

But the problem is, the demad is not flowing to the sub assembly and the component level. There is no dependent requirement is passed below.

Is there any configuration that I am missing to get the dependent requirement flow to all the sub assembly level and the raw material levels?

Just to brief again:

Material MRP strategy used



ROH 40

PIR loaded for FERT with requirement type "VSE"

Any help will be appreciated.
