    Isn't it how SAP standard already works? If you have no inventory then you'd have no confirmed quantity for the date and you won't be able to create a delivery for that date.

    Hello Nandhini,

    In Standard SAP processing if quantity is not confirm on requested delivery date then system generate the new schedule line using through forward scheduling and according to confirm delivery date system generate the delivery on material availability date.

    Well, answer is a bit more complex. We can have basically two situations:

    1. ATP is not confirmed in sales order.

    2. ATP is confirmed in sales order and in time delivery is created, there is nothing available on stock.

    In both situations can happened delivery is created, based on configuration.

    To prevent situation 1, you must not do anything, system will take a care in his standard setup.

    To prevent situation 2, you have to set on item category level that items with zero quantity is not allowed. It should be find in item category definition for deliveries. But if is delivery created to sales order with only one item, I am not sure, if delivery without items will not be created. You have to test it.

    All system behavior is also depending on how ATP check is setup. There are three places, where ATP can be checked. Sales order item creation or change, delivery item creation or change, posting of goods issue. In principle all of them can be switch off in different ways and then system reacts by setup. I would recommend to ask some ATP experienced consultant to check your concept and recommend solution.
