Lead Time Commit not happening

Hi experts,

We are using batch stock in APO and sales orders will get confirmation based on available batch stock.

If batch stock does not meets the user requirement then the batch is not considered in sales order and sales order should get LT commit.

But in our system ATP check is not considering the batch expiration date and giving confirmation on today date.

This is not the expected behaviour. ATP check should consider available stocks based on remaining shelf life and give confimation.

please suggest how to achieve this.

suggestions are highly appriciated.

Thnaks,

BK.

    BK,

    But in our system ATP check is not considering the batch expiration date and giving confirmation on today date.

    This is not the expected behavior. ATP check should consider available stocks based on remaining shelf life and give confirmation.

    It is not clear to me how you came to 'expect' this behavior. I don't think I have ever seen such a behavior documented anywhere.

    Performing ATP on batches is exactly that: The system will check for the availability of the appropriate batches, which evidently is happening successfully in your system.

    'Shelf life' is a planning concept, and in general is not directly supported within Availability checking. It appears that what you want is availability based upon characteristics of the batch. (expiration date of a batch).

    SCM does support Characteristics based planning, and also Availability checking based upon characteristics. If you are interested in pursuing a standard solution, this would be the a good area to investigate.
