Sales Order on 1 product and Need to consume Forecast on another product

Hello,

We are using PPDS for planning.

We forecast 1 product - Product A ( which is a dummy product ) and then want Sales Order from other product - Product B consume the forecast.

How can I do that ?.

In R/3, I assigned Product A as planning Material on Product B.

CIFed them to APO.

I am not sure what should be requirement strategy on Product A and Product B. I tried 60 and 60 on both products and forecasts is not getting consumed.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Thanks.

changing the check mode in APO manually does not help because the check mode in the ATP check comes from the ERP. You need to change the requirement class, requirement type, determining requirement type and strategy in ERP to match the entries in APO.
