    <b>Schedule Lines</b>:

    Together with the sales document types and item categories, the schedule line categories contained in the standard SAP R/3 System cover the most common business transactions.

    The SAP System can only copy items of a sales document to a delivery if they have schedule lines. The control of the schedule lines depends on the schedule line category.

    The following menu options describe how you define schedule line categories or adapt them to the requirements of your organization. You must process the following points to do this:

    You must define schedule line categories or adapt them to your requirements.

    You must allocate the schedule line categories to the item categories depending on the MRP type.

    If necessary, you must define schedule line types for scheduling agreements.

    <b>Scheduling Agreements with Delivery Schedules</b>

    In this step, you set scheduling agreements with delivery schedules used by the component supplier industry. This includes:

    Control incoming EDI messages

    Define schedule line types

    Set planning delivery schedule functions

    Hi!

    You must be aware that each delivery relevant item in the sales order generates atleast one schedule line for itself. Each schedule line contains delivery dates and quantity of the material can be confirmed for the date. Every schedule line is assigned a schedule line category(Example :-CP, CN etc) on the basis of Item category of the item and MRP type(trans VOV5).

    The schedule line category has controls on the sales process like Movement type, transfer of requirements, availability check, block for the schedule line etc(check trans VOV6).

    Whereas . Scheduling agreement is an agreement with your customer in which you would promise your customer to deliver a fixed quantity of a agreed material on some fixed dates. Scheduling agreement that are available in the standard system are BL,DEL & DS(check through trans VA31).

    In case you want to customize the standard Scheduling agreements you can use trans VOV8, use the above mentioned types BL/DEL/DS.

    Hi,

    Scheduling Agreement is one of the outline agreements and is one of the order types.It is not necesaary for us to do order once again and we can directly procedd to delivery.

    Schedule line is a line item which gives information regarding quantities delivered and the date at which they are delivered.

    Schedule line category is determined with the combination of the Item category of the document type and the mrp type.
