    If you want to combine a number of items in a sales document so that they are delivered together, you can create a delivery group.

    If an item has more than one schedule line with confirmed quantities (for example, after an availability check) the system copies the date of the latest schedule line for this item and displays it on the delivery group overview screen.

    When forming delivery groups, the system deletes the earlier schedule lines and copies their confirmed quantities into the latest schedule line.

    If a complete delivery has not been requested, as soon as all the items for the bill of material are available, the system generates a correlated schedule line. This allows you to make a partial delivery on the first date on which all the items in the bill of material become available.

    In other words, the first day on which all items in the bill of material are available, the system issues a confirmed quantity.

    Prerequisites

    For correlated schedule lines in bills of material (BOMs) in delivery groups, there are certain prerequisites for the delivery group.

    These are as follows:

    The delivery group may only contain one bill of material

    It cannot contain any fixed quantities

    It cannot contain any items that have partial delivery indicator C (one-time delivery)

    It cannot contain any partially-delivered items

    It can only contain items that can be at least partially delivered

    It can only contain items that have a maximum of one requested schedule line

    In Customizing for item categories, you can control that the system should generate correlated schedule lines for the delivery group. You can do this by selecting A in the Generate delivery group field for the item category in the bill of material main item.

    Hi

    The manual or automatic grouping of one or more items (main items and/or sub-items) in a sales order so that they can be delivered on the same date.

    An item that is confirmed for several delivery dates can be confirmed for a single delivery date if it is assigned to a delivery group. This is the latest delivery date of all the confirmation schedule lines of this item.

    All items that are assigned to the same delivery group are confirmed for a single delivery date. This is the latest delivery date of all these items.

    If the sales order is marked in the header for complete delivery, then all items will be assigned to the same delivery group.

    regards

    Dear Manivannan,

    Delivery group is basically used whenever there is a group of material ie., like in bom if at all you do no have stock of the sub item and you have stock of main item, system will respond and create the deliver for every item in the records of sales order, dly and billing.

    Later on when the stock arrives then we can send the stock to the customer

    configuration, you need to activate this in the condition type, also youcan do it in the item level in the sales order.

    Hope this is one clear to you, reward points

    thanks
