is there any solution is r/3 to..................

hi,

sap gurus,

good evening to all,

how to restrict a customer by giving a limited number of same material and message has to be given by the system automatically

for eg:

we have a monthly plan for distributing the materials in allotment manually but my customer XXXX is

he is purchasing ZZZZ product in tonnes and he is crossing his monthly target every time, by this we

are not able to supply the same material to other customers as our product production is limited.

so is there any provision in r/3 to restrict the customer by fixing the allotment of the product, and it

has to cumulate the number of tons he has purchased and system automatically has to give a

message that no allotment is there for the respective customer.

please help me on this.

regards,

balaji.t

    Balaji,

    Quantity contracts can fulfil your requirement.

    1. Create the quantity contract using t.code va41 with document type "cq".

    2. Maintain the copy control settings between "cq" & the release order say "zror" in transaction code "vtaa". The document "cq" will be source document & "zror" will be target document. "Tick" on the "update document flow" at the item category level.

    3. After creating the contract, create a sales order in va01 using document type zror. Create with reference to the Contract "cq". This is called a release order & it is created with reference to the quantity contract.

    4. The document flow will update the quantity everytime the release order is created & saved. You created a contract for customer "a" + material "x" for 1000 pieces. You created the first release order for 300 pieces, the document flow will update the 300 pieces & the remaining quantity will be 700. Then you create more sales orders with 200 & 400 quantities. Now the available quantity will be 1000-300-200-400 = 100 pieces.

    Now when you try to create a release order for 200 quantites then, the system will display a message that quantity contract allows only 100 pieces.

    Hope this solves your problem.

    With best regards,

    Allabaqsh G. Patil.

    hi,

    you can do it by using product allocation in availability check.

    you can go thru it in the sap library or any sap material providing details regarding

    availability check,

    Hi

    I believe creating Quantity contracts is a better option when the demand is more and the supply is less.

    Thanks,

    Ravi
