    Hi,

    As per my understanding you shold apply strategy 40 to a1, a2 and a3. For A you can use strategy 10 as sales order is always for a1, a2 and a3 not for A.

    But caterring of demand as what you require is not possible with this.

    Either create a product group for a1, a2 and a3 or create a new material say A1 and maintain a1, a2 and a3 as its BOM components. Ignore planned order for A1.

    The similar thing you can do for A also.

    Hi Guna.

    Since you are creating PIR for header Material , without creating planned order how the PIR will get reduced. Inthat case u have run reorganization for PIR.

    I guess "Planning with planning material with out MTO (63)" will meet your requirement. In your case Material A is planning material and Material A1 is variant material.

    Assign the planning material A & plan conv fact at MRP view of "variant material (A1)".

    Create demand for planning material and run MRP. System will create VP type planned order for planning material and LA type for variant material. if create sale order for material A1 it will reduce the PIR of A which already created. Now when u run the MRP second time for A, planned order will be deleted. Inthis way u can run your scenario

    Please try and if u found useful reward and close.
