Looking for control of RBA Product Substitution

Hello Gurus,

We have implemented Product Substitutions using RBA in our company. What the users are now asking is to whether the 'substitution' can kick in only if the substitution quantity is < X. If it is > X they want to produce the requested product and not go for substitution.

Can anybody point me to a solution, please?

Thanks,

Subash Nanjangud

    HI Nanjangud,

    I dont think there is any Standard setting which will suffice your requirement. You would need to control this using a custom solution.

    By X qty do you mean this is X = Order Qty (You have mentioned X = "Substitution Qty" Can you please clarify what X here stands for?

    Assuming X = Order Qty, Then simple Store X somewhere in a filed just to provide flexibility to change the value of X in future or to have flexibility to have different X for different order types.

    And compare X with Requirement qty in CIF user Exit and pass appropriate Check mode accordingly. With Check mode you can control which check instruction will be used. And with that you can control whether to activate RBA or not.

    Regards,

    Manoj

    Thanks Manor for the response.

    In my scenario X is the requested qty. if Requested Qty is < X, start substitution. If is > X don't substitute.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thx,
