ATP (confirm partial availability) for simple discontinuation

Dear SAP Guru,

we have some issues regarding ATP (confirm partial availability in production scheduling profile set) and simple discontinuation (set in material master MRP4), for example MM-DISC is to be followed up to MM-FOLL,

MRP is run without considering ATP, if material to be discontinued is not enough, required is directed to follow up in planned order.

For example:

Planned order A 100 PCS, will required component

1. AA 100 PCS

2. MM-DISC 75 PCS (only 75 in stock, requirement is directed to MM-FOLL for 25 PCS)


We have problem when planned order is converted to production order, we have confirm quantity 0 set (since AA is zero so nothing is committed), so the production order component will be

1. AA 100 PCS --> not commited

2. MM-DISC 75 PCS --> not commited

in MRP run we need to buy againMM-DISC 25 PCS, so the discontinuation process is always failed due to ATP.

Please kindly share you advice, or can we make ATP in production order just use component from planned order??

Thank you very much.

best regards,

      Hi Sir,

      Currently we are opening OSS notes asking for the logic between ATP and simple discontinuation in production order. The logic seems not align together to achieve business goal (discontinuation).

      Will inform back asap after SAP answer the notes.

      Thank you very much.

      Best regards,
