    In Change View "Availability Check Control" (OVZ9)

    "Availabilty Check" ZP and Checking Rule "A" (SD Order) are to be linked.

    The checking group field is maintained in the Mtl Master in 2 places: Sales general plant iew and MRP3 view. Pls check the entries in these two places and then verify your Availability control data accordingly.

    Hope, this helps!

    • Hi Gurus,

      Availabilty Check Configuration ( More Informative )

      Types of Availability Check in Sales and Distribution

      ProcessingThere are three types of availability check:

      _ Check on the basis of the ATP quantities

      _ Check against product allocation

      _ Check against planning

      The following SD-specific control features need to be maintained in Customizing:

      _ Checking group

      The checking group controls whether the system is to create individual or collective

      requirements in sales and shipping processing. In addition, a material block for the

      availability check with transfer of requirements can be set here. The checking group can

      also be used to deactivate the availability check. This option was created especially for

      the assembly order so that when the bill of material is exploded in the assembly order,

      the individual components, if necessary, can be classified as non-critical parts as far as

      procurement is concerned.

      The checking group specifies in combination with the checking rule the scope of the

      availability check. It is proposed in the material master record on the basis of the material

      type and the plant, and copied into the sales and distribution documents. It is specified in MMR in MRP3 screen, availability check tab.

      _ Checking Rule

      You use the checking rule to control the scope of the availability check for each

      transaction in sales and distribution. You also specify whether the check should be

      carried out including or excluding replenishment lead time. The individual checking rules

      define by transaction, which kinds of stocks and inward - outward movement(receipts and issues) of goods should

      be taken into account for the availability check.

      _ Schedule line category

      You can control with the schedule line category whether an availability check and

      transfer of requirements should be carried out in the sales documents. The possible

      settings for this at schedule line level are dependent on the settings in the requirements

      class which is determined from the requirements type of the material.

      _ Delivery item category

      The delivery item category can be used to control whether an availability check takes

      place in deliveries.

      Requirements type

      The various requirements are identified by their requirements type. The requirements

      type refers to the requirements class and its control features. it is assigned to requirement class.

      _ Requirements Class

      The requirements class contains all control features for planning such as relevance for

      planning, requirements planning strategy and requirements consumption strategy. In

      addition, it is specified at a global level whether an availability check is to take place for

      the material in the sales and distribution documents on the basis of the ATP quantity

      (ATP = available to promise) and whether requirements are to be passed on. A finer

      degree of control can be obtained for sales documents using the schedule line category.

      Replenishment lead time is only included in the check performed on the basis of the

      ATP quantity.


      An availability check can only be carried out if the following prerequisites have been fulfilled:

      _ The control elements described above for the availability check must be maintained in

      Customizing for Sales and the relevant assignments made to the sales transactions

      _ The availability check must be switched on at requirements class level and - for theavailability check in the sales documents - at schedule line category level

      A requirements type must exist by which the requirements class can be found

      _ A plant must be defined. It can either be proposed from the customer or material master

      record or can be entered manually in the document._ A checking group must be defined in the material master record on the Sales/plant data

      screen in the Availability check field

      Configuring entries of the Availability CheckIMGàSDàBasic fncsàAvailability check and TORàAvailability checkàAvailability check with ATP logic or against planningàDefine checking groups

      You can use SAP std checking groups of 01 for summarized reqts or 02 for daily reqts or u can create ur own.

      The columns total sales and total deliveries are selection options whereby u can configure a checking rule to sum up reqts to post to MRP either individually or by day or week.

      Column 5, Block qty; set this block if u want several users to be able to process the material simultaneously in different transactions without blocking each other. The No Check indicator is used when u want a material to not be relevant for an ATP check.

      Defining a material block for other users. The Block checkbox is an indicator that enables u to block the particular material from being checked for availability if it is already being checked at the same time by another user.Defining the default value for checking groups. However should no entry exist for the checking group in the material master record, one can set a default value per material type and plant.

      Controlling the availability check. In this section, u tell the system what stock on hand and what inward and outward movements of stock it must take into account when performing the availability check. These settings are based on the checking group that is assigned to the material master record and the checking rule that is predefined and assigned to the sd transaction. The carry out control for the availability check must be maintained for both the sales order and delivery
