Hello All

This might be a basic question but need to know more details for this requirement

1) once the purchase order is received from the customer for 5000 quantity which should be delivered to the customer in a time duration for 1 year ( to note this Purchase order is not into SAP it is a manual document),Sales order is created in to SAP for the whole 5000 quantity remains open until the whole quantity is delivered.

2) the delivery is happening week-on week or even some times on monthly basis some time immediate

3) the question is where is the trig erring point in SAP on sales order which sends the information to the planner to produce the material?

4) need to know more details regarding the integration between sales order and the planner requirement

Thanks ..

    For your requirement, I would recommend you to check the option of standard functionality Scheduling Agreement.

    Sales doc type (VOV8)

    DS - Scheduling Agreement

    SD document categ

    E - Scheduling agreement

    Item Category (w. I Cat Grp NORM)

    LPN - Sched.Agreement Item

    Billing Relevence

    A - Delivery-related billing document

    Schedule Line Category

    CP - MRP

    Relevant for requirement & Availablity Check

    So, the system based on your

    in schedule line cat

    schedule for delivery will run MRP for

    for production plan

    Based on your schedule, your business flow will be:

    DS (VA31)

    - > LF (VL01N)

    - > F2 (VF01)
