Lead Time in Delivery of a Procured Item



In our company, we have a machine part no (say A) which is of E type. Under this part, there is an import part which is of F type (say B). Now this import part needs to arrive at our plant before 1 month of the actual production schedule. Now if I create a planned order of part A (inhouse production time = 2 days), the dependent requirement of part B is getting generated on the start date of the planned order of part A which is okay.

Now the schedule line for part B is also getting generated on the same day as the dependent requirement date as per MRP.

If I have to generate the schedule line say 30 working days prior to the dependent requirement dates, what should I do?
