Availability Check on future Orders

Hello SAP Folks,

Is there any way in SAP to not to confirm the Sales Order which are not due within next 3-4 months. The reason being is, Order which is not due sometime next few months consuming the available stock. Any huge Order consumes the entire stock and remaining orders do not get confirmed despite they are supposed to delivery in next weeks or so. Production team produces the stock to meet the Sales Orders requirement but remaining orders remain unconfirmed until we manually adjust the stock on Orders. Please do not recommend V_V2 program as we do not use it for some reasons. Is ther any other option available to achieve this?

    You could try V_RA transaction if you have authorization for it and adjust confirmed quantity per document.

    Or you could enter a delivery block, which also blocks confirmations.

    In the long term such approach is not very convenient and means additional effort.

    If this happens very often for specific products where you have no possibility to increase production, maybe you need to discuss with your consultant whether product allocation could help manage the situation better.

    Hello Veselina,

    Delivery block may work here becasue we have lot of validations within our Order management and it will create a problem once Order goes out from one team to another team to make other changes.. V_RA is a manual thing which we are avoiding here as this impacts many items and probably volume will be huge..

    We're not using product allocation but I will look into this option and update you if this serves our purpose..

    Anyone has any other suggestion, please let me know..

    Thanks,

    Sue.K

    It seems you set the ATP configuration to block the stock against sale orders which you can change in OVZ9.
