Dear SAP Experts, I have a specific query w.r.t Requirments Date on the MD04 for a material (Finished Goods).

The FG material 05501142(A) shows a requriment date till October 2017 but the Raw material 08105075 (B) has a requirment date till March 2017 only and somehow as per user they should mirror each other.

Now from Troublwshooting point of view, can you please advise what areas I should be checking to figure out what is the cause of the Issue.

Note: The only thing I could find was that the FG material 05501142(A) has some other raw material with Indicator Assemble checked.

Could you please advise any solution?

The requirement date on the child material should be calculated according to the start date of the planned order of the parent material.

I did not see a screenshot of the planned order of the parent material, but this kind of issue generally happens when there is a huge lead time for your parent material. Therefore you should check your in-house production time and your routing, to check why there is such a huge lead time.

I see that your material 05501142 has MRP type X0, so these date may be calculated directly from APO.
