2452484 - CTM creates Dependent Demand for a PDS component not respecting External Procurement


You have a PDS with a Phantom Assembly component and you have set this component with procurement type: F (External).

For example:


  • A_FINAL_PRODUCT : final product
  • B_PHANTOM  : phantom assembly
  • C_COMPONENT : component

When executing the CTM A_FINAL_PRODUCT is planned, and so B_PHANTOM. However, even though B_PHANTOM is set with procurement type F, a Dependent Demand is created in C_COMPONENT.

The expectation is that the procurement should has been taken in consideration before the PDS Explosion, and do, no Dependent Demand should be created to  C_COMPONENT.
