Set the Parent as M so that MRP does plan the lower levels.  BUT make sure youuse a different buyer/planner code for the parent, say "SETS".  Even though it is set to M you can still purchanse it.  Once you have created the PO for the parent MRP would then remove the demand for the components as there is no longer a requirement for them.

Thank you Phill for your reply. 

My concern with your solution is that the Engineer in our case who creates the BOM needs to know that the items will be ordered as a set. Otherwise they don't know that they need to create an item as parent for the set. I would like no parent in the BOM, I just need the separate items in it. QAD needs to make a match between demand for certain parts and the availability of those parts in a set at our supplier. 

Maybe this clarifies the issue more.
