Multiple Items planning in MRP

I have an item which could be produced from an item or by a combination of other items ( for example item X could be produced from A or by a combination of B and C). All the items are MRP items. I would like to maintain default BOM for X with A. After generating MRP orders, I would like to specify what would be the combination to make that particular MRP order, would like to substitute B and C for that MRP order only and want MRP to generate requirements for B and C suppressing the requirements for A (temporary suspension of BOM). Subsequent MRP run should refer the default BOM for requirements.

Please let me know if this could be mapped using standard functionality or if any customization has been done in this functionality, please let me know

Thanks and regards
Kamesh Kumar

Considder this..

Once you decided how to make that MRP order for X, transfer it to a production order and change the estimated material list to include B and C.
This will solve part of the problem:
- Demand is generated for B and C
- Future planned orders will require A (as stated in the BOM).

But, you loose some flexibility in planning because a production order a "scheduled receipt" (as opposed to "planned supply").

Lightbulb ... or this ...


assuming that you don't use process items perhaps you can try this:
create a BOM wich contains all materials. Therefore you have to change the BOM Unit of item X to 2 (or a proper quantity). This ensures that the MRP generates a demand for all materials. After creating the production orders you can change the estimated materials according to your needs.

Hope this will work in your case.
