    Let say user A is not accessing MM02 transaction but he is creating an Outbound delivery for material X and at the same time User B is doing the confirmation of material X on production order.


    System still stop and throw a message that User A has opened the material X.

    As our daily production on material X is about 100ton/day and if the user A has opened a material while creating an ISO, or delivery user B is restricted which delays user B for creating Packing list and doing dispatch.

    • Well since it's MTO there's nothing much you can do, the processes are internlinked, so SAP locks the tables to avoid inconsistenties.

      You can post the confirmations in the background, but first you have to mark them to be posted in the background using transaction code CO1V. This transaction code will NOT lock the table data so you can post your outbound delivery etc. Then setup a background job for CORUPROC1 to post the confirmations during the night.

      Use case 1. in the following post in th thread I explained

    You should be able to create production order and do confirmation when the material is open. Because Production order and confirmation is transactional data while Material is Master data.

    Saad Nisar,

    As material master have many parameters which affect transaction , and hence SAP have this locking facility.

    consider a example , one user is setting a material plant status for material as Non production relevant and other one is creating a production order, so it doesnt justify.

    Appreciate if you provide details , why do you want to have such function activate in system, the exact requirement and may be Experts here can suggest some solution or work around.

    Hope it will help you.

    Thanks

    Ritesh
