how to decide MRP controllers


My client has five plants. Client manufactures 4 different products. Some raw materials are common for few products.

First doubt is I am not able to decide what solution to give on how many MRP controllers should be made?

Next, in material master of Finished, semi and Raw materials what MRP controller to put in all cases as well as in case of one raw material is used in say 3 different products.Ex. products are cycle, rickshaw and bike.Plants are 4 in numbers.

Now in material master if cycle i can put mrp controller as 001.its subassemblies( semi finished) also as 001. Similarly in case of rickshaw as 002 and its subassemblies (semi finished) as 002.Similarly in case of bikes as 003 and its subassemblies (semi finished) as 003.

For finished and semi finished it is ok. But for raw material say one 'bolt', it can be BOM of cycle and rickshaw and bike. So in the material master of 'bolt' , what MRP controller can be given??

Guys please answer.
