MRP Area Material Master configuration questions

I have a BOM set up with A being the parent of B and C being the component of B. In other words

0: A



Materials B and C are both procured externally with B being bought on a Sub Contract PO having C as one of its components. 2 MRP Storage locations have been set up, US10B and US10R. US10B is set for storage location 2500 and US10R is set for storage location 1000. I loaded independent requirements for A in MRP Area US10B and then ran MRP. The dependent requirements of B correctly show up in MRP Area US10B, but the requirements for C show at the plant MRP Area level. A, B, and C have all had MRP Area views created for them. If I set the plant level MRP 2 view of B to procurement type X and special procurement 30 then the requirements for C will show up in the correct MRP Area. Any combination of fields I set in the MRP area view of B seems to cause dependent requirements of C to be displayed at the plant level. I also load independent requirements for B in US10R and run MRP but no matter what I do the dependent requirements of C are never displayed in the US10R MRP stock requirements view.

Basically we want to plan these materials at both MRP levels and keep the requirements seperate from one another and only look at their respective storage locations.
