Make-to-order. Requirement linked to Quotation and not to Sales Order

After we have changed our Make-To-Order Materials from unvaluated sales order stock to valuated Sales Order Stock we do face a problem with the Requirement for those Sales Orders lines which are started with a Quotation. After running MRP a planned Order is created (ok) but the Planned Order is linked to the Quotation line and not to the Sales order line. When converting the Planned order to a Production order the AFPOD-KDAUF field is the number of the Quotation and unfortunately not the Sales Order number.

The Quotation looks ok. Item category is AGN and Schedule line category is BN (no MRP). When converting the Quotation into a Sales Order the Item category change to TAN and schedule lin category is now CP.

The copy rules QT -> OR (VTAA) shows copying requirement = 501 Schedule qty >0 and DataT = 201 General Schedule line Data

Anyone got a clue about where to look? ¨

Thanks in advance

Ken

    Hi Ken,

    Please read this OSS note:

    SAP Note 16658 - Generate sales order stock based on quotation

    This note suggest how to change customizing setting to avoid the problem you have with quotations.

    I hope this will be useful.

    Regards

    Can check the sales order item category? For make to order scenario, the item category must be TAK and not TAN. Is there any changes in the material master ->sales view ->item category group?

    Hi Ken,

    For make to order scenario in material master you have to declare item category group 0002 and in MRP 3 view you have to declare Make-to-Order/No Assembly Order.The sales order item category should be TAC or TAM.

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for your proposals.

    The Materials involved are standard items (FINI -> NORM) and our Set-up with item category TAN works perfectly when we create a Sales Order without a Quotation first. And the way we solve the problem manually right now is to convert the Quotation and delete in line item and recreate them manually.

    I found that if i delete the requirement type in the Quotation and then convert the Quotation into a Sales Order then the Planned with be linked to the Sales Order = perfect.

    Any other ideas

    Best

    Ken

      Hi Ken,

      If it is working fine and the user also accepted for this scenario you can go with that.
