SLED by customer/ material

Hello Gurus,

I have a problem in my client. They have a rule to check ATP by SLED of materials.

Every customers have for each material one SLED available. For example, Customer X only order material Y with 30 days to expiration date, and so on....

Do you know if we have any place in master data to assign the availability experiration date for materials by client in R/3?

Do we have any way to make ATP by SLED?

Thank you very much

    I would say you need to use batch management for that. You set up an access sequence and condition records for combination of material and customer and put in a selection class in which you put in the minimum shelf life of the material required by the customer.

    Do you use batch management already?

    I don't use batch management and the idea is to continue like this.

    We can´t use the batch determination because that management is made by the other system.

    In SAP R/3 we only create sales order, availabilty check (by SLED) , create deliveries, we porpose for shipment then we have an Interface to the other system (Warehouse management) and the return to SAP is the batch and picking.

    The idea in ATP is to check quantities by plant but only inside the number of days available for that material/customer:

    Example: For customer 249 and material AA31263 the SLED is 30 days available

    We have 1000 Kg of AA31263 in the plant, but only 500 Kg have SLED available for 30 days.

    The customer 249 need 800 Kg of AA31263, so when in SAP we create the sales order the system must say thar only 500 kg are available.

    You think this is impossible to make this management in standard?

    Thank you

      Lina -

      You can not have batches to view in MD04. Also batches are not allocated at the time of sales order, they get assigned only at the time of delivery. This is because at the time of creating sales order the stock may not be available but at the time of creating delivery the stock should be availabe. So at the time of creating deliveries only according to condition record and batch search criteria it will get picked in the delivery.
