    I think you misunderstood my question.

    I have two sales order of Product "X" and "Y".

    Both product "X" and "Y" have same BOM component "A". In all 3 products I am using strategy 20 and bom explosion "collective requirements only". There is one more independent sale order of product "A" also. so there will be three requirements for Product "A". Two from dependent requirement from Product "X" and "Y" and one independent requirement from sales order of "A".

    My question is, after running MRP, how many planned orders of "A" will be created ?

    • Hello

      If you are using planning strategy 20, system will generate sales orders assigned to the sales order individual stock, that means, one planned order for each sales order.

      What you can do is to set the field "individual/collective" of the component to "collective requirements only". In this case, the dependent requirements will not be assigned to the sales order individual stock. Depending on the lot sizing procedure, you may get a single planned order for all the requirements.
