Loction substitution: Subitem still created despite having full confirmation

Dear Gurus,

May i kindly seek your expertise once again.

Situation: Location Substitution

in /SAPAPO/ATPC07 (Check instructions) - Active RVA, Start Immediately and create sub item is ticked. Stock has enough to supply the demand.

During ATP/BOP, system creates subitem despite the location has enough sock to fulfill the demand.

Result: demand doubles (main item and sub item)

What should i do for the system to consider the stocks and would not create a subitem if stock can fulfill the demand?

thanks and regards!

    Hello Ezekiel,

    If you're using Rules Based ATP, and if you have clicked on "Rules Immediately", then it would mean that the sub item would be created. However, the confirmation would be from the substitute item which would then be rolled up to the main item.

    For example, you may see the following thing in system

    Line item 10 P1 L1 - Ordered 100 Confirmed 100

    Line item 11 P1 L2 - Ordered 100 Confirmed 100

    In this case, the actual confirmation came from Line item 11. However, the cumulative confirmation for the line item is shown at Line item 10 which is 100 PCs.

    In case of partial confirmations, you would see as shown below

    Line item 10 P1 L1 - Ordered 100 Confirmed 70

    Line item 11 P1 L2 - Ordered 50 Confirmed 50

    Line item 12 P1 L1 - Ordered 50 Confrimed 20

    Hope this clear.
