When the parent item has a shrink factor, MRP is generating demand for raw materials on planned Process Item orders that is less than the quantity required when the job is converted to a firm work order. The P3411 and P3413 show the same discrepancy.

Requirements for raw materials should be the same whether the work order is planned or firm.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Enter two processes, a co-product and an ingredient (G4111/P4101 and P41026).
2. For the process item branch record, enter desired Shrink Factor amount and Shrink Factor Method using percentage (%) in the Additional System Information.
3. Set up 1 Co-product and 2 Ingredients (P3002P and P3002 row exits from the P3003).
4. Set up the Co/By Planning Table (G3442/P3404)  Set Planning Percents to equal 100%.
5. Set up a Forecast for the Co-product (P3460).
6. Run MRP (R3482) with both items in the data selection.
7. Confirm that MRP messages (P3411) are created for the process and ingredient.
8. Process the messages for the process.
9. Rerun MRP.
10. See that the messages for ingredients changed for the firm work order.

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, raw material shortages occur.
