Availability check during Shipping

Hi,

I want input regarding availability check during shipping.

It's a make to order scenario & I want to know whether availability check is really required during shipping for checking the sales order stock or it can be managed without availability check.

The reason, why I want to avoid availability check is because the quantity of production order is very small say 10 ton of concrete p day. I require a proper logics to convince my client.

Please share your valuable inputs.

Regards

Suman

    Dear Suman

    Whatever be the production order quantity, it makes sense to carry out an availability check in the delivery for the following reasons.

    If you do not carry out an availability check for particular materials in the sales order, you should definitely check whether the order quantity is available and can be delivered when you create the delivery. Even if you have checked the availability situation in the order, it makes sense to check it once again in the delivery.

    The availability check is calculated using planned inward and outward movements of goods. Therefore the delivery situation might have changed in the meantime due to unforeseen circumstances, such as lost output. The availability check in the delivery takes any such changes into account.

    Thanks
