Exclusion of storage location from availability check

Hi Experts,

Is it possible to exclude a particular storage location for a component material from showing up during that material's availability check/batch determination during process order creation or release ? That is if 20 kg of that material is available in a storage location 3000 and 30 kg in location 3010, we would like the quantity in the location 3000 to be not available for copying during batch determination/goods issue whereas the 30kg should be available.

Alternatively, during availability check for the components of the order is it possible to exclude a particular storage location (irrespective of which of the components may be lying in that storage location) ?

Regards

Sm.

    • Hi Gopi,

      Thanks for the prompt reply. But as i understand it, MMSC only offers the opportunity to assign or delete a storage location for a material. But i don't want to add or delete storage location. I just want that the system should not consider a particular storage location while doing availability check. Please clarify my understanding if it is possible through MMSC.

    Hi,

    I think you can activate MRP area for your plant . Then you can assign sto location which you want to include in MRP .

    Once you do this assign this MRP in material master.

    By this you can do this but still some setting may require just check out from other experts.

    • Hi Sanil,

      As i understand it, by defining MRP area for a component and assigning storage location to that area and following up with appropriate master data settings i may be able to generate storage location based requirement but i want to know how i can have storage location based availability check, please suggest.

      Regards

    Dear ,

    Frist of all availability check while creation of process order is at plant /order type combination where as material availity check control as per the MRP-3 view Availability check control key (OPJJ) , does not have option to exclude or include storage location stock because it is at client level set up.

    Now , if you are stick to only material availabilty check you can have two option :

    1.Follow the MRP Area Concept -Include Storage Loaction (02) stock , plant and other set up but MRP activation is a clinet level changes .Here you can restrict the material availability check for SL : 3000 .If you need detail answer that can be posted .

    2.Trasfer the stock in Block Stock .To transfer the stocks (unrestricted) from storage location A to the blocked stocks in storage location B This needs MB1B Movement type 311 to transfer from storage location A to storage location B and another transaction.MB1B Movement type 344 to move stocks in storage location B from unrestricted to block to blocked stocks

    Once the stock goes to blocked it wont be available to for availability check

    Hope it is clear to you

    Regards
