Supply area determination in planned order

Dear all,

I would like to understand the SAP logic to assgin the supply area in the planned order BOM

I've seen the following answer about the storage location determination but is it the same logic used for the supply area ?

The issuing storage location is determined in three steps in the production order:

    o  First, the issue storage location of the material to be issued

       (MARC-LGPRO) is transferred to the material master from the MRP

       data if it is filled.

    o  The system overwrites this value with the issue storage location

       from the bill of material (RC29P-LGORT, STPO-LGORT) if it is


    o  If the operation to which the component is assigned in production

       order contains a work center with supply area, the storage

       location is transferred from this supply area (PVBE-LGORT).

       However, this transfer is only carried out if storage location

       data (MARD) is maintained for this storage location for the


Note 137225 provides more details about the storage location determination.

Thanks for your help
