Capacity Allocation against Customers

Hi,

We have a scenario that we need to allocate capacities to our customers on a monthly basis such that Product A can be made for Customer A and Customer B and the capacity available for it is 4000 units. We need to ensure that Customer A can only place an order of 2000 units and can only place an order of 4000 units if Customer B doesn't place an order for Product A in the given period.

We are a Make to Order industry and the Sales Order for the month have not been received but capacity for the future needs to be reserved for Product A and Customer A and B.

Can anyone tell me if its possible and how can it be done?

Regards,

Hashim Abbasi

    Hashim,

    There is not a real "capacity allocation against customers" check in SAP ERP. In SAP, when we refer to 'capacity', we are usually referring to manhours or machinehours.

    However, in your example, where you wish to limit a customer's consumption by units, the standard solution is product allocation.
