    Dear Steven,

    unfortunately there is really no good documentation of all possible restrictions of using multiple schedule lines in the assembly processing. But it is really the case.

    From SAP side the existance of such restrictions is partially documented in the FAQ note 764611. Here you can find:

    1. Question:

    Can there be several schedule lines for each sales order item with a static assembly?

    In general, static assembly processing is designed to use one

    requested schedule line for each item in the sales order. However, you

    can also use static assembly processing if several requested schedule

    lines exist for each item in the sales order. However, there are

    restrictions.

    2. Question:

    What are the restrictions with several schedule lines in the sales order

    in connection with static assembly processing?

    The following restrictions exist for the static assembly:

    2a. When you change a sales order, the schedule lines may be confirmed

    at a later date than is possible.

    Example: During the creation, two requested schedule lines can be

    confirmed. Then the receipt is postponed for one component so that the

    second schedule line can no longer be confirmed at the requested date

    although the first schedule line could still be confirmed at the

    requested date. However, during a further availability check, the first

    schedule line is no longer confirmed at the requested date.

    The system behaves as described above because the availability check

    assumes that the requirement quantity that is confirmed for the

    component for the first schedule line of the header material is

    confirmed for the same component for the second schedule line.

    2b. Further restrictions may exist. This list does not claim to be

    complete.

    ==========================================

    As I have already said, quite generally the process is not forbidden. But it seems to be that sometimes you will see some unexpected reactions from the system because the case of multiple schedule lines was never specially designed, never tested and it is possible that the system will reacts not as expected.

    But generally, the process is not forbidden. You can try to start and to test.

    Unfortunately the note 764611 is the only note where the restrictions of using multiple schedule lines in assembly processing are mentioned.

    And because the process itself is not tested from SAP side, we cannot exclude the unexpected system response in some cases. Please test the process very carefully.

    I hope on your understanding that it is impossible to describe all possible restrictions of such a process. Therefore their existance only mentioned in the note 764611.

    I hope nevertheless, that this info helps you a little bit further.

    Hi

    Yes, when create the scheduling agreement, if stock is nil, then it will process during MRP Run.

    Steps:

    After creating Scheduling agreement

    MD02 - To MRP Run

    MD04 - to display requirement.

    It will show the requirement based on your scheduling agreement.

    Reward if it helps

    Regards

    Hi

    After the MD04, you convert the planned order to Production order and we make GRN based on the Production order

    Reward if it helps

      Hi Prasanna,

      Thanks for the reply. What I am looking for is to create production order from scheduling agreement schedule line(s) directly, not running mrp.

      We are in make-to-order type production. The purpose is to create each individual schedule lines, and each one will drive to a production order online.

      Thanks

      Steven

    Dear Steven,

    no, I am sorry to inform you that you cannot use the assembly (make-to order) functionality in the scherduling agreements. Both assembly and third-party processing is not supported for scheduling agreements.

    There is also SAP note 378144 which documents this restriction of scheduling agreements.

    I am very sorry that I cannot give you another response, but hope nevertheless that my response helps you further and explains your inquiry.

    I hope, this info helps you.

    Kind regards,
