Forecast consumption with SBOMs


We are facing in issue with misalignment in APO planning with SBOMs. Current process is to forecast in DP and release to SNP at SBOM top level to ensure we are driving requirements for all items in SBOM. However, per standard functionality in sales order integration model, only the SBOM component sales order lines are being CIFed to SNP. Therefore we have forecast for 100 units at top level and sales order for "n" units of each SBOM component also driving requirements with no forecast consumption. DP users do not want to change process to now forecast at SBOM component level. We assume there is no other solution except a modification on SO IM at user exit ZXCIFU16 to add criteria higher level item indicator (VBAP.UEPOS) <10... essentially flipping current functionality- only bring top level items of SBOM and not components. Looking for confirmation or other alternatives, as all clients using APO with ECC SBOMs must face this issue?
