RE: How can items of an assembly be forecasted with the finished good?

We can use demand planning in “sales forecast” mode for our assemblies (finished goods), but the components within the assemblies are not being pulling according to the demand plan for the finished good. Question, how can we get the plan to reflect the correct item requirements within each of these assemblies in the week they are required per the demand plan/sales forecast?

Thanks for your answer!  So we have to run both Demand Plan and Supply Plan?  Currently we are getting an error when trying to generate Supply Plan.  It seems we need to change WORK ORDER VARIABLE LEAD TIME to be 1.  Currently it is set to 7 and causing strange errors because we have assemblies within assemblies.  Have you seen this as well?
