Planning with Planning Material in MTO scenario


Colleagues, We have an MTO scenario where part of the BOM fits in to the 'planning material' model. Let us assume that the planning material is created at the header level of the original BOM and also it has some assemblies / components.

I understand that the header level is taken care of by using the strategy appropriately i.e 63 etc, maintained for both the original material and plannng material. The forecast will be maintained at the planning material level and sales orders will be booked for the original material and all consumption will be pointed to planning material.

However, I would like to know the impact of using the planning material strategy on assemblies and components. Have any of you run in to any challenges in using the

planning material strategy? Please advice.
