what is availability check, how to configure it..
When we create a sales order, there are several basic
functions which are executed automatically for the dynamic order
management . among these basic functions , availability check and
transfer of reQuirements are crucial.
the system first prepares schedule line
containing the information on the desired delivery date and
Quantities , this information is passed to MRP and an avialability
check and transfer of reQuiremnts are executed
First the system carries out backward
scheduling and establishes the material avaialbility date = desired
delivery date-transit time-loading time-picking & packing time and
on this date an availability check is carried out using ATP logic
which means avialable to promise Quanity =total ware house
along with the avialability check the
reQuirements also are transferred to MRP.
the configuration involves following
1. switching on at schedule line catagegory the
avialability check and TOR
2. configure the avilability check using ATP and
using the checking group and Checking rule
What is the
difference between ATP check and availability check how these
reflect in sales order(which check system considers) what are the
IMG settings for the same.
ATP Check is checking of availablty
Quantities i.e ATP = Total Warehouse Stock + Planned
receipts(Incoming Stock) - Planned Issues (Out going stock)
Availbilty Check is an integral part of
business process it determines the if the desire deliverible
Quantity can be met on reQuested delivery date or not.Then it passes
to Material ReQuirement Planning. Or we can also say..
avability check is nothing but checking of
availibility of stock which is placed in the order , sys carries out
this check through a available to promise (ATP) logic =whare house
stock +planned recepts (incoming stock)-planned issues (out going
