Sales order block for quantity that exceeds stock levels

Hi,

We have a need in times of "one off" Sales Orders to restrict the Sales Order due to it's impact on Inventory.

By restrict I mean to flag up that this Order exceeds either the current tolerance for that part or looks at the impact on Inventory.

At the moment we have no visibility or flag at an early stage to capture this as the Sales order is entered.

thanks

    Hi,

    I have not understood the context clearly,

    But if you have decided to stop further processing of sales order or item then

    Try to use rejection reason :

    (VBAK-AUGRU) For Header

    (VBAP-ABGRU) for Item

    I also find it hard to understand the business process.

    Did you mean that the client wises to distribute certain products to customers on some kind of quotas?

    Or it is related to the risk of customer not paying, or to maximum value restrictions on cash transactions or it is something completely different?

    What should be blocked after you set this flag?

    Assume you flag the order, then what should happen - you will send it for approval, or you have to make some changes to the document, or you will not process it further?

    Please provide a detailed step-by-step explanation of the complete business process - AS-IS and outline the desired outcome - TO-BE, so that you can get high quality replies.

    Basically the Client wants a simulative sales order. So for example they put the order on and its checks the inventory of all the BOM levels. If those inventory levels are sufficiently depleted below set levels there will be a warning message

    Milton,

    Well, the actual business requirement is lacking in detail.

    In some companies, they will define in planning a minimum level of stock that they always want to keep on hand.  This is documented in the material master as 'safety stock'.  MM02

    In some of these companies, they will also make this quantity unavailable for the confirmation of sales orders.  OVZ9.

    So, in real life, if a new order comes in, and this new order exceeds "available-minus-safety-stock", the order will remain unconfirmed.  During the next planning run, the system will recognized this new unconfirmed requirement, and will plan to replenish the safety stock.  Only after a satisfactory amount of stock is on hand/expected to be on hand, can the new order actually be confirmed.

    Best Regards,
