ATP based on material and capacity availability

Hi Experts,

Is there a way to implement ATP with finite capacity availability and material availability in a Make to stock (MTS) environment in R/3? In other words, when a sales order is created for a material, the confirmation date that is recd. should be based on Capacity and Material availability. What planning strategy would you use?

I understand that this can be implemented in assembled to order environment (planning strategy 82 or 83), but my question is more related to MTS environment.

Regards,

Praveen

    Hi Praveen,

    SAP recommends APO as a solution for your scenario. Check out their documentation on Capable to Promise (CTP) under

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_scm2007/helpdata/en/64/7294375960a42be10000009b38f8cf/frameset.htm

    This is not a trivial implementation. You need to be sure that this is what your business wants before you embark on the change.

    Regards,
