alternative materials in PP


Dear friends:

I have known something about PP alternative Group and alternative item functions,

but i am not sure whether SAP whether SAP PP supports following business scenario. Anyone 's responses will be highly appreciated.

Here is the business requirement:

Material A is a component of FG,

And material B can be an alternative item for A when A is in a shortage.

let's say the stock of A is 10, the stock of B is also 10.

And the requirement for A is 12,

Can system automatically suggest in production order processing that 10 pieces of A and 2 pieces of B should be used in the prod order?

PS: if A has enough stock, no reservation for B should be proposed by system.

Please help. and thanks in advance!
