Default schedule line category

Hey Gurus,

Is there a way to default the schedule line category by material? How does this value get defaulted when a schedule line is created? Is this tied to the item category? If so, how do I assign a default schedule line category to the item category?

Sincerely,

Nina

    SCHEDULE LINE categories are determined by the item category and the MRP type. so, lets your MRP type is PD that you have maintained in the material master and lets says that your item category determined in the order is TAN. ( This is done via ITEM CATEGORY ASSIGNMENT). So in the Schedule line determinations, if you specify that

    TAN(Item Category from the sales order) + PD(MRP TYPE from the material master) = CP,

    Then CP will be determined in your order.

    You canot defualt a schedule line category to a material. Or in other words, its is controller by ITEM CATEGORY GROUP * MRP TYPE fileds in the material master.

    Hope it helps.

    hi

    schedule lines are assigned to item categories and mrp type

    not to materials

    define schedule lines in VOV6

    assign schedule lines in VOV5

    Dear Neena,

    "Schedule Line" is dtrmnd using "item category" of the item + "MRP type" of the item.

    Now further "item cat." of the item is determined using "sales doc. type" + "item category group" + "item cat. usage" + higher level item cat. (for sub-items).

    MRP Type is simply picked from material master of the item under consideration.

    Thus u can c that once these 2 things r dtrmnd i.e "Item Category" & "MRP Type" then schedule line category is determined automatically. Hence its determination can b controlled by controlling the values of "Item Category" & "MRP Type" only.

    Hope it suffices. Plz close the thread if answered.

    regards

    Nina,

    Your questiont is exactly the contrary.

    1. Schedule line is defaulted based on MRP Type and not bymaterial

    2. Item category + MRP Type (Material master) = Schedule line Category

    TAN ND = CN

    TAN PD = CP

    KBN ND = E0

    KEN ND = C0

    KAN ND = F0

    KRN ND = D0

    after this assignment when you run a normal process the Schedule line category appears by default in your order screen. (Go to Item Details screen, Choose schedule line tab, scroll horizontally you can find schedule line category appearing)

    3. Yes, we should assign schedule line to item category For Ex. In case of consignment item category we have KBN - E1 or E0, KEN - c1 or c0, KAN - F1 or F0, KRN - we

    4, First we can either use Existing Schedule line category or create your own schedule line category by pressing "New Entries". Tcode VOV6

    5. Then we need to assign this schedule categories to item category and MRP type. Tcode VOV5

    Note: we can assign three Manual schedule line categories to overwrite default prposed by the system.

    NOTE: Schedule line category checks whether TOR (Transfer of requirement), Availability Check should be carried out, whether PR should be generated or not.

    These configuration depends and changes according to your business requirements.

    Regards

    Is there a way to default the schedule line category by material?

    => NO

    How does this value get defaulted when a schedule line is created? Is this tied to the item category?

    => SCHEDULE LINE IS NOT DEFAULTED WHEN IT GETS CREATED. IT CAN BE DETAULTED AFTER TIEING WITH ITEM CATEGORY.

    If so, how do I assign a default schedule line category to the item category?

    => U CAN ASSIGN SCHEDULE LINE CATEGORY TO THE COMBINATION OF

    "ITEM CATEGORY + MRP TYPE"

    AFTER DETERMINATION OF THESE TWO THINGS SCHEDULE LINE CATEGORY IS AUTOMATICALY DETERMINED IF IT IS ALREADY ASSIGNED TO THE RELETED COMBINATION.

    ITEM CATEGORY IS DETERMINED BASED ON 4 THINGS

    1. ITEM CATEGORY GROUP

    2. SALES DOCUMENT TYPE

    3. ITEM USAGE

    4. HIGHER LEVEL ITEM CATEGORY

    MRP TYPE IS RETRIVED FROM MATERIAL MASTER.

    Hope it will help...
