When do we go for MD43 (i.e. Single Item Interactive Planning)
Before MD04, we do planning using MD02 ( Single Item Multilevel planning) which plans for all BOM levels
When do we go for MD43 ( Single Item Interactive Planning)
Please elucidate on the above

Hi Suren R
MD03 is single level MRP for specific item.
MD03 does not have interactive mode. So once you kick the MRP from MD03,
MRP is triggered and save the MRP result automatically.
Different from MD03, MD43 has interactive mode. So in the second screen you will
see current situation like MD04 and you can execute MRP interactively and decide
whether you really want to save the MRP result or cancel the MRP result.
So different from MD03, MD43 provide you with interactive planning.
Another feature of MD43 is, if you use long term planning and you want to import the
result of long term planning to productive planning, you can import long term planning
result from MD43.
In the second screen of MD43 (almost same as MD04), go to menu and select edit
=>Copy simulative LT planned order.
I hope this explanation help your understanding.
