    Availability check

    u2022 An Availability check is carried out during sales order processing.

    u2022 An availability check occurs if-

    �� The Material requires an availability check-in material master (Gen./Plant or MRP 3)

    �� The Material availability checks in customizing-Delivery item Categories and Schedule line


    u2022 Availability is checked on material availability date. The material availability date is

    determined from delivery scheduling, on this date enough material has to be available in time for

    delivery to the customer for their requested date.

    u2022 In Customizing, you can configure which inward and outward movements are to be considered in

    availability check.

    u2022 Communication between sales and distribution and Procurement is carried out via requirements. The

    transfer of requirements type can be influence the availability check.

    u2022 Any agreements made with customer about deliveries also affect the result of the availability check.

    Example-complete/partial deliveries.

    u2022 The indicator for controlling complete/partial deliveries is proposed from the customer master

    records. The proposal for the item level comes from the customer-material information record, if

    a customer and material agreement maintained there. These indicators can be changed manually

    during order entry.

    u2022 The availability check includes-

    �� Current stock

    �� Inward movement

    �� Outward movement

    Backorder processing

    u2022 An order item is backdated if

    �� The quantity of an order item is not totally confirmed.

    �� The request delivery date for an order item cannot be kept.

    u2022 There are two type of backorder processing

    �� Manually- From list sales order processes them manually with reference to confirmation (Short

    fall can be cleared).

    �� Via Rescheduling- We can use the delivery priority (proposed from the customer master) and

    make new order and confirmation date by scheduling.

    i create sales order system will authomatically carry out availability check.

    This depends on your schedule line category. First identify what schedule line category is flowing in your sale order. Next go to VOV6, select your schedule line category and execute. There tick the box for "Availability".
