VL03N - Delivery (in reference to SO) displaying 0 quantity

Hi Experts,

I am new to SD.

Issue in brief, a schedule line with future delivery date is blocking delivery for schedule lines with latest (current) delivery date. Here, the system is performing Stock availability check for a material 66186 (line item in an SO 1) against a WBS "A" but that same material 66186 is used in another SO 2 against same WBS "A".

For example, Material 66186 in SO 1 (WBS "A") has a schedule line item with Receipt\Requirement date as 11.11.2016. Whereas, same material 66186 in SO 2 (WBS "A") has a schedule line item with Receipt\Requirement date as 01.01.2017.

That material has a stock of quantity 1 but the system is displaying Confirmed quantity against both SO 1 and SO 2 in Availability overview. Due to this, when user is trying creating delivery in reference to SO 1; the system is displaying 0 quantity and an error message "Only 0 EA of material 66186 JA99593 available" and delivery is not getting created. JA99593 is a batch.

The workaround applied is that we have removed WBS "A" from another SO 2 for time being. Thereafter, the system displayed quantity 1 and allowed us creating delivery.

How can we avoid this situation in future?

We need system should not consider a schedule line future receipt\requirement date for availability check but consider only schedule line with current receipt\requirement date. Thus, a delivery can be created for schedule line with current receipt\requirement date.

Thanks in advance!

Regards,

Sandeep

    Dear Sandeep,

    Kindly Please check the batch JA99593 ..may be this batch stock is already assigned for some other order or some other deliveries..

    you can check in delivery level go to additional info there click on availability and check the batch stock is assigned or not..

    • Thanks Viswa.

      I mentioned already that stock availability check is confirming quantity 1 of unrestricted stock (against a batch number and WBS) against both the Sales orders.

      I believe, my problem can be solved by selecting either of correct option in "Incl. planned orders" in OVZ9.

      Please let me know the purpose of four options (F4 entries) given for a indicator "Incl. planned orders" in OVZ9 (Availability check control).

      Those are:

      Do not check,

      Check all planned orders,

      Check firmed planned orders only and

      Only check planned orders that are completely confirmed.

      Regards,

    System will not block creation of deliveries if stock is made available at a future date. You need to check your ATP settings. Take the inputs by searching Google where step by step procedure would be there.

    Ho does your SO2 know about that batch? Probably because you have already a delivery where this batch is allocated.

    Hence this batch is not available for SO1.

    If you have just 1 quantity of batch JA99593 and you promised this already for SO2 then why do you try to assign the same batch to SO1?

    You said you have already confirmed schedule lines for both sales orders, which means that your ATP has included future receipts.

    Hi Viswa, Lakshmipati and Jurgen,

    I checked twice. This batch JA99593 is not linked to any other SO or delivery.

    I am attaching a document herewith, contains screen shots.

    Please go through once. I am sure, you guys will be able to understand my problem.

    The document states little about my findings and what workaround I suggested to my client.

    Regards,

    Sandeep

    I am unable in attaching those documents.

    Those documents are in JPG form. After uploading a document, it is asking for "Preview and resize". But, after resizing; I do not see any button to say yes or continue.

    Please guide me how to proceed.

    Regards,

    Sandeep

    Thanks Jurgen.

    I could not see Accept\Cancel button due to IE version issue.

    Today, now I tried in Google Chrome and able to attach those docs.

    Please go through once and suggest me.

    Best regards,

    Sandeep

    Check if your situation is equal to the describe case in OSS note 2248066 - Missing availability of materials in the project delivery

    Check if you can implement the fixes from this note and if that changes your situation with this error message

    Hi Jurgen,

    Referred OSS note is applicable in case of CNS0.

    Whereas, we are trying creating delivery here using VL01N. If you have read those attached documents I have provided a temporary workaround to my client. But, client requested us finding a permanent solution.

    At present, the system is considering future delivery date also during Availability check and stock is getting consumed (or delivery is getting confirmed) for that future date also but it should not be the case. We want the system should look only for latest (current) delivery date for confirmation.

    In the attached example; the system is displaying (Availability overview screen) stock quantity '1' is getting confirmed against two Sales order schedule line items respectively. Those SOs are linked to same WBS element.

    Initially, it is displaying as 0 quantity in delivery but when we are removing WBS from another SO; then the system is displaying quantity 1 in delivery.

    I may wrong in interpreting my issue as I am new to SD. So, please cooperate and be patient.

    Best regards,

    Sandeep

    Correct statement: At present, the system is considering future delivery date also during Availability check and stock is getting consumed (or confirmed quantity as 1) for that future date also but it should not be the case. We want the system should look only for latest (current) delivery date for confirmation.
