Planning Components (Run MRP), Based On Dependent Requirements Generated By Planned Orders
Hello PP experts,
I've been informed that "if you load the planned orders for the finished products you're trying to make, you don't need to run the MRP or load Planned Independent Requirements for your Finished Products. You will only plan your components (run the MRP), based on dependent requirements generated by
the planned orders."
How do you plan your components (run the MRP), based on dependent requirements generated by the planned orders? Which Transaction Code is used and how?
Thanks in advance.

If you are going to run the MRP using MD01 (or MDBT for the background) and you only want to consider your components, you will need to assign MRP type ND for your finished products and PD for your components. This way the MRP will skip the materials with ND and is going to consider materials with PD.
