Availability check and Plant preference

Hi Gurus !

I have 3 plants A, B and C.

When I create a Sales Order, I tried to customize a sequence to say :

- First check in plant B

- Second check in plant A

- Thrid check in plant C

Unfortunately, Availability check allow to check all stock in all plants (without any possible suggestion).

Moreover, in Material Master Data, the only way I found is to manage the delivery plant. But we can manage only one plant.

Do you have an idea ?

Many Thanks.

Stéphane

    Hi,

    SAP provides automatic availability check in only one plant,

    but at the time of sales order creation if you dont have the stock in one plant, system pops up a message saying confirmed qty is 0.

    in that screen on the top you have one more field called other plants.

    by pressing that we can check the availability of the material in other plants manually, during sales order processing.

    hope this helps

    regards

    ravi

    Hi

    As per my knowledge in R3 Availability check happens in only one plant the( delivering plant which has come in sales order) and system stops after that

    The Functionality which you are looking is available only in APO (ADVANCED PLANNING AND OPTIMZATION) not in R3

    In APO system checks in plant A if stock is not available in plant A then checks plant B and still if stock is not available plant B then checks plant C

    In APO if configured the system will create an automatic STO (from plant C to plant A as per this example) as plant A is the delivering plant in sales order

    In APO system will create an automatic STO in the stock available to plant to the stock required plant

    Regards

    Raja
