Is it possible to use dependent requirement to consume existing PIR?

Hi everybody,

Is that possible to use dependent requriment to cosume an existing independent requirement?

for example:we have a product A and a half-product B, assuming use one B to make one A.

we have created planned independent requirement for B by MD61 amount of 10.

In a sales order we have created an item line for A for amount of 7 and run MRP.

We expect the requirment for B still remains 10 rather than 10+7=17. That is , for B, dependent requirement from A consumes the existing inpendent requiremnt.

Is that possible? If so, do anyone know with which strategy?

Any sugguest is appreciated. Thank you.

    Brad,

    For forecasting at non-finished goods levels, such as your 'half-material', which I would call a 'subassembly', you normally would select strategy 70
