    Dear Baxter,

    Planned independant requirement:

    Planned independent requirements are used to perform Demand Managment functions. A planned independent requirement contains one planned quantity and one date, or a number of planned independent requirements schedule lines, that is, one planned quantity split over time according to dates.

    Dependant requirement is for Ex . BOM material :The system creates dependent requirements for the BOM level directly below the planning level.

    Reward if useful,

    Hi,

    Independent requirement is the requirement planned independently of any other requirement. It does not depend on the sale order / project or other requirement. For example, you plan material for stock for spares. Then the requirements become independent requirement for spares.

    Dependent requirement is the requirement which depends upon the other materials requirements. For example, your semifinished material is maintained in BOM of your finished goods. When your finished material's requirement is detected (either through sale order / project), then during MRP, your semifinished material is also planned.

    Hope this clears your query.

    Regards,

    Prashant
