MD04 Materials Planing in a Subcontractor Environment

There are many questions and threads relating to the use of MD04 for planning / scheduling production materials for a subcontractor environment.

Is there a SAP transaction other than MD04 available in SAP for this task?

I'm just not convinced or have confidence in what appears to be the SAP standard setup and view of this transaction in the subcontract environment. To me it appears very difficult to read and makes little sense in its current set up. However, I am still tasked with implementing this for materials planning.

It's starts with zero available stock in the plant section then suggests subsequent PO's based on the zero meaning we're being promoted to place orders we don't need to.

Secondly, in order to see the stock figure we need to randomly scroll down the subcontracting section to view the planned sub reqs, yet the stock in this section diminished with zero suggestions re: Pur reqs.

I can't help but think this is a very simple task that is being made unnecessarily difficult purely due to my lack of knowledge.
