Information in this document applies to any platform.


When the Supply Type = Supplier for a component in an option class' bill of material, ASCP plan explodes the forecast demands.  ASCP should not explode forecasts if supply type is "supplier".

1. Set a component planned to MRP and with forecast control set to "consume&derive"
2. in Option class ' bill of material, set this component with supply type = supplier
3. Put forecast on option class
4. data collection
5. plan run
6. in ASCP workbench, see that forecasts are exploded on component whereas they should not

-- when we use standard BOM for non-ATO or have a WIP job for configured item or standard item, we do not see this demand in the workbench
