Thanks for the response, Kevin.

To answer your questions:

1) Yes
2) Yes
3) Yes--We have effectivity To dates of 12/31/2037 for most parts
4) No--the method code is blank
5) The requirements code is S, with Demand codes of 1 and 1 (and a fence
of 7, though I believe that doesn't matter if the Demand codes are
identical)

Do you know of anything that would cause the MRP explosion to stop after
planning a certain number of levels?

Chris,

I hope these questions are helpful at determining the issue....

- Is there demand for the parent item(s) ?
- Is the parent item demand showing up in MRP maintenance?
- Are these items within their effectivity date range on the BOM ?
- Are these items using a method code on the BOM (other than blank) ?
- In Facility Planning, what is the Requirements Code ? (should be D or
S or
blank)

We're using BPCS 6.0.2, and for a certain kind of item no production
planning is taking place.

It's a third-level item--that is, it is used to make an intermediate
part, which is then used to make a finished good. We maintain a zero
minimum balance, and the Facility Planning Data record is set up with
a fixed period requirements (order policy G) with an order period of
30 days. Additionally, the 'Master Scheduled' field is set to 'N' in
both the Facility Planning Data and Item Master records (this setting
appears to be valid for second-level purchased components).

Does anybody know of something that would prevent production planning
from taking place for these items, or could you give me some sort of
hint as to where I could look?

Thanks!
