TLB generate transfer orders even if there is no stock

Hi Gurus,

We have an issue wherein when TLB is executed, transfer orders are created wven if there are no stock.

The settings in ATD Receipts is it should only consider unrestricted use stock. However there are open Purchase orders in the past which are not yet received. Does this cause the system to propose TLB Orders?

    If the category for purchase orders is considered TLB-eligible then past-due PO's will be included in the calculation for ATD Receipts. I know you've said that the settings are such that ATD Receipts will only include unrestricted stock, but I'd challenge this notion in your case. Check the location master and the product master, as well as the Planning Book itself to determine if ATD Receipts is indeed including only "CC" or may it also be including Purchase Orders or "BF"??

    From SAP help regarding ATD Receipt category group: You can specify this field in both the location product master and the location master. When Deployment is carried out, the system first checks whether the category group has been specified for the location product. If not, the system checks the entry at location level. If no category group has been defined for the location either, the system uses the standard category group ATR.

    So, if nothing is assigned in the product-location or location master, then ATR is used (which by standard has BF). Also, remember that the product-location master "trumps" the location master per above.

      Not sure I agree.  I think TLB will simply aggregate the Deployment Stock Transfers that exist.

      If you have no stock, then you should not have any deployment stock transfers.

      TLB does not care.
