Planning for subassmeblies for configurable product

Hi, We are using Material Type = KMAT.

With Variant configuration, customer selects the characteristic values.

This leads to creation of 1st level BOM on saving the sales order.

All these 1st level BOM subassemblies are with procurement type "E" and Special procurement type="52". No GRs are made on these subassemblies.

We get the sales orders throughout the month. To respond to the demand, we intend to plan these subassemblies(without making GRs for the subassmelies) in MRP.

At MRP time, based on sales interactions, upto 60% of the subassembly demand is know.

Question 1:How do we capture the demand of these subassemblies for MRP?

(When sales orders are not created)

Question 2: If these subassemblies are fed as PIR in MD61, will SAP consume the PIRs when sales orders come?

KMAT material A

its BOM item




B1(stg 70)

B2(stf 70)

You need to have a stg 70 for subassemblies and enter the qty in demand management

You should not use 52 -collective order for 1st level BOM.

Then with stg 70, when you run MRP. Then the requirement for these assemblies are getting netted off with the qty you have enetered in stg 70.

You cannot have Both i.e. 52/sales order and demand plan to net off. i.e.

KMAT material A

its BOM item

B(SPK-52) and stg 70

C(SPK-52) and stg 70

please come back if required
