Scheduling Agreement Schedule Lines firmed after outbound delivery

Dear All,

We use scheduling agreement for cross-company process in our client. After MRP run schedule lines created automatically. For the next step outbound delivery is created via VL10F (or VL10B).

After outbound delivery creation, on MD04 or ME39, i see the schedule line firmed (*). Because firmig MRP doesn't change those schedule lines. This is a problem for our client.

Do you know a way for MRP can change the schedule lines even outbound delivery created ? How can i manage this situation ?

Best regards,

    Hi Anil

    The '*' that you see means that the schedule line has been changed manually and the Firming indicator (EKET-FIXKZ) is set when there is any change to the Schedule line.

    So, when a Delivery is created, the schedule line should be 'Fixed'.
    Otheriwse, MRP can delete or change this schedule line and it would cause an inconsistency in the system. This is the logically intended behaviour.

    Please see the F1 help for the field EKET-FIXKZ:
    "Schedule Line is "Fixed"
    Fixes the schedule line and determines that it cannot now be automatically changed as a result of materials planning and control/MRP activities.

    The indicator is set automatically if:

    .- You make manual changes to a line of a scheduling agreement delivery schedule that was created via the materials planning process
    .- You create a schedule line manually

    You can specify whether Materials Planning/MRP can change delivery schedule lines within the firm and trade-off zones in the additional data for the scheduling agreement item."

    I hope this helps.
