Planning with Alternate Materials

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me how we can plan for Alternate materials in SAP PP with ECC 6.0

My scenario is that we have a BOM for Material A which uses multiple components and if one component is not available than its alternate is used instead.

Material A: Base Qty 100 gms

Component A: Qty 10 gms

Alternate Component A: 7 gms

Component B: Qty 90 gms

Now what we want is that if Component A is not available Alternate Component A should be used in its place. We can manage this through Alternate Item Groups in BOM but this only works at execution level. Is there anyway how we can implement this scenario in such a way that MRP also generates requirements for Alternate Component A
