Forecast consumption by Dependent Demand


Hi experts,

Here is the Scenario for that I wanted to design the solution,

1. There is a common component (SFG-1) used for producing 2 Finished goods (FG1 and FG2).

2. Forecast is created at the component level SFG-1 and produced.

3. FG1 is MTS item and planned based on Forecast.

4. FG2 is MTO item and planned only for sales orders.

Now both FG1 and FG2 will create dependent demands for SFG1.

The requirement is only the dependent demand for the MTO material FG2 should consume the forecast at the component level. But the dependent demand for the MTS material FG1 should not consume the forecast at the component level.

But as of my understanding, SAP will consider both MTS and MTO dependent demands as one and both will consume the forecast.

In the other way, we can restrict the consumption of the forecast by MTO material dep demand by Individual/collective indicator, but we can not restrict the MTS.

Any ideas on this will really be appreciated.
