Process Order generating Dependent Requirements instead of Order Reservations


Hi Gurus,

I was wondering if there is a way for the MRP to generate dependent requirements from a Process Order for the lower level BOM items, instead of creating order reservations.

I tried to change the customizing settings for the "Reservation/Purch. Req" field on the process order, from "3 - Immediately" to "2 - From release". But the system does not create anything for the lower levels of the BOM, it just shows the process order on the MD04 with no effect whatsoever.

What I intend is for the system to create dependent requirements for the process order before this one is released. And after it has been released, then the system will convert the dependent requirements into order reservations.

Is any of this remotely possible?

Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards,
