Requirements for phantoms to not pass down to components

I have this requirement where the requirements at the phantom level should not be passed down to the components but the Planned orders at the phantom level need to be created.

Is this even possible? If so then what planning strategy needs to be used and what type of independent requiremnets should be used. Please advise.

    You can use any stg like 11, 10, 40 to phantom assembly, but see that following setting is done in MRP4 view of product material master

    MRP dep. requirement = 1- Materials for dependent requirements are not planned.

    <b>Explanation</b>

    <u>MRP relevancy for dependent requirements</u>

    This indicator controls whether dependent requirements are relevant to MRP or not. Dependent requirements include dependent reservations and stock transfer requirements.

    You only use this indicator in connection with planning strategies for make-to-stock production, assembly planning. Note that the indicator Dependent requirements not relevant to MRP should only be used when, for example, planned independent requirements exist for an assembly. In this case, no receipt elements for the dependent requirements in MRP should be created as receipts have already been created for the planned independent requirements.

    Dear Sarita,

    I guess, Phantom assy. are defined in a way when reqmts. need to be directly passed to the BOM Components.However,whether these components are relevant for MRP,can be controlled using setting as mentioned by Rajesh.If you want to create Planned Order for Phantom Assy. then it can be manually created.An assy. can behave Phantom for a particular header material n same assy. can behave a stockable assy. in other header material .
