    Hi Geetha

    To deliver an Item you need to have a schedule line.

    In the Sales order, an Item can have one or more schedule line, but to be delivered atleast one schedule line must be there.

    During Sales order processing a 'requirement transfer" is sent to the "Materials planning " department for the schedule line ,which a communication between SD and MM department (SD-MM interfac).

    From this "Transfer of Requirement", Materials Planning comes to know,How much quantity of which material SD needs to deliver and on which date.

    Accordingly, they may go for Production or Procurement as applicable to make the goods available for SD to meet the schedule line.

    Schedule line contains the information about Delivery date, delivery quantity aswell as information about requirement transfer and goods movement.Schedule line is controlled by "Schedule line category".

    So, in the Schedule line category we configure, whether Tranfer of Requirement is relevant or not, beacuse all schedule lines are not relevant for Transfer of Requirement.

    For example,

    when we create a Standard order for a normal material, it has got a schedule line and its schedule line is relevant for "Requirement Transfer".

    But, when our faulty goods comes back from the customer, we create a Return order, which also has a schedule line so that the goods will come in, but this schedule line is not relevant for "Requirement Transfer".

    So, if you will go for the "Schedule line category in Return" (DN), you will find the Requirement transfer field is blank, beacuse when my faulty goods are coming back, why should I put a requirement to Materials planning.It is not relevant.

    I hope now you are clear about the relation of Schedule line and Requirement transfer.

    this is with availability check settings MM01 and Scheduline determination.

    in VA02 double click on the line item and check the schedule lines. you can understand the delivery date picked.

    Whether TOR is individual or Daily basis.

    Best Regards

    All the information given by the gurus are correct.. in addition to that, Requirement Class(OVZG) is the important factor which controls whether requirement should be transferred or not..

    Schedule line level is just used for fine tuning purpose..

    Transfer of Requirements:

    The schedule line in Sale order represents the customeru2019s intended delivery date and the quantity to be delivered. This information is transferred (a transfer of requirements, TOR) to materials requirements planning. Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) is then able to determine if there is enough quantity of stock available for the scheduled delivery date.
