Release Strategy for contracts.

Hi gurus,

Good day,.

Please help on this.

We have a release strat for Contract. It is working fine when a contract is created, but when several changes were made on the Quantity, release srtat are not being triggered.

Example.

Contact created with qty 1000 --> release status is blocked. Then release it in ME35.

After releasing, quantity was updated to 1200--> release status is blocked. Then release it in ME35.

After releasing, quantity was updated to 1100--> release strategy was not triggered. Status was released.

what is the standard functionality for this? Should the decrease in quantity will trigger release strategy or not?

Thank you.

    Dear Acel,

    The example you given was working just fine and correct.

    a)Contact created with qty 1000 --> release status is blocked. Then release it in ME35.

    b)After releasing, quantity was updated to 1200--> release status is blocked. Then release it in ME35.

    c)After releasing, quantity was updated to 1100--> release strategy was not triggered. Status was released.

    -> The release strategy will only be reset if the total net value for the contract was higher the previous

    value but not lower.

    As your example, quantity was updated to 1200, then it will reset when changing from 1000

    to 1200. However when it was decrease to 1100, then it will not reset anymore as you had

    release it for a quantity of 1200, then the total net value should higher than the current qty = 1100.

    In system, it always assume if you had approved for the total value of the higher 1 before, then

    it should be fine for the lower total net value for your management and therefore not need to re-approve

    again for redundancy job. This was very logic in common business scenario in many companies.

    However, like in your example , if you had define a different release strategy for a value that met the

    the 1100 quantity, it will redermine the different release strategy. For example:

    USD 1 for every quantity = 1

    Then your contract will be USD 1000 for quantity = 1000, USD 1100 for quantity = 1100 and

    USD 1200 for quantity = 1200.

    Release strategy A for 1000 , characteristics from USD 1000- lower than 1100

    Release strategy B for 1100 , characteristics from USD 1100- lower than 1200

    Release strategy C for 1200 , characteristics from USD 1200 onwards

    Then if you change the quantity from 1200 to 1100, it will redetermine the release

    strategy B which means from Release strategy C to Release strategy B. If you

    only had Release strategy C that had a characteristics from 1000-1200, then

    it will keep the Release strategy C as released and it won't be reset unless

    if you had change it and the condition of the total net value was higher than any value

    before.

    Hope this will explain the logic.

    Hi,

    In customizing for Release strategy for contract there is Release indicator tab where you can select the option 4 where Changeable, new release in case of new strat. or val. change. then try to create & change the contract.
