Unconfirmed Sales Orders should not consume Forecast

Hi All,

We have an issue where the Unconfirmed Sales Order consumes the Forecast in APO. As per the requirement we only want to have Consumption of Forecast against the Confirmed Sales Order. Please suggest how we can stop this.

The Planning Strategy in Product Master is maintained as 20 (PLANNING WITH FINAL ASSEMBLY), corresponding in R/3 is 40.

fyi, we use APO 3.1.

Thanks,

Aashish

    Dear Aashish,

    Unfortunatley it is not possible to make consumption to work only based on confirmed quantity. It always consider requested quantity. May be you can restrict the sales orders based on confirmed qty before transfering to SCM system.

    Hi Aashish,

    You might set the "fixed date and quantity flag" for the unconfirmed items so they will not generate a requirement and thus they will not be transfered to APO. But the order will also never appear in a APO BOP run...

    Another option would be to switch off the consumption in the APO inbound processing (userexit) when a sales order without confirmation arrives.

    best regards,

    Michael
