MRP Area Setting

Hi, expert

I have the following scenario:

I got a transit sloc 1510 where goods will be backflush to this location first, then use mvt 311 to transfer to 1530 (fg whse) and 1520 (fg whse), and we want to seperate the material planning for 1530 and 1520.

So, we use MRP area to do this:

I set up 2 storage location MRP area: 1530, 1520

sloc 1530 assigned to MRP area 1530, rec loc 1530

sloc 1520 assigned to MRP area 1520, rec loc 1520

Item A MRP4 setting:

Production Version: Issue storage location: 1910, rec sloc: 1510

Already assigned MRP area 1530 to this item A

I created a sales order for ITEM A, in sales order, I specific the sloc 1530. Then I run MD02 using MRP area 1530. When I view the result in MD04, the rec loc for plan order is 1530 instead of 1510 (seems like MRP 4 production version setting is ignored).

I try to add sloc 1510 in MRP area 1530 in SPRO, and then run MD04, the planned order rec loc becomes 1510, and this is what I want. But the problem is when I assign 1510 to MRP area 1520, system prompt error that 1510 already assign to other MRP area, it seems that only 1 sloc can be assigned to 1 MRP area, but based on my scenario, both 1520 and 1530 sharing 1 transit loc 1510, and I want the planning to be diff for 1520 and 1530, how should I proceed? how to configure MRP area?
