TECO Without Clear/Delete Reservations

Dear SAP experts,

My client asked me if it is possible to configure the order status TECO for not deleting or clearing the reservations.

They want to do that for closing the order while waiting for the materials to be received, and of course, to keep the possibility for planning the material requirements using MRP.

I've been trying to modify the system status TECO using the transaction BS22, but I havenu2019t worked so far. I think that standard functionality of the TECO status for clearing all the material reservation it's kind of hardcode and not possible to configure.

Best regards,

    dear friend,

    some theory first.

    The following actions are executed if an order is set to Technically complete.

    The order is not relevant for MRP planning

    Reservations are deleted

    Capacity requirements are deleted

    Purchase requisitions for external operations or non-stock materials are deleted

    The order and its operations receive the system status Technically Completed (TECO)

    If an order is technically complete, you cannot change it. The fields in the order are displayed but cannot be changed. You can however cancel technical completion, for instance if order data has to be changed.

    After technical completion you can still make postings for the order. For instance, material withdrawal or a confirmation can be posted if they were previously forgotten.


    can you please provide some more details on your business process?

    Why would you want to use TECO if not to delete open reservation?

    Maybe you can do the same using a user status that you will customize to your requirements exactly.

      Maybe I need to gather more details about the requirements. I know that sometimes clients want to do crazy things with the system.

      I think that they want to keep the functionality of TECO status while waiting for materials to be procured. Surely, they want to avoid the order to be treated in some way, and at the same time planning the replenishment of spare parts.

      At the end, I think that I would be better to do whatever they want to using User Status or an specific User-exit.

      Best regards.
