Availability check for components

Former Member

Hi All,

We have one material which is assembled by using two components (BOM).

During avaiability check in sales order system should check components stock available in Stores.

· If there is sufficient stock of the component materials is available, the availability check should report a fixed number of days to make assembly,

· If there is insufficient stock of the component materials, the availability check should report the longest lead time for the material which is short + fixed number of days to assembly.

Please help

Vikas,

This is pretty standard Strategy 82 (assemble to order).

In the case of adequate components in stores, finish date of the production order (from which the confirmation date of the sales item is derived) will be dependent on the routing time. You can construct your routings to be fixed times, if you wish.

In the case of inadequate components, the system determine the availability of the components (usually from Total replenishment lead time of the components) and will then schedules the production order. The finish date of the production order (from which the confirmation of the sales item is derived) will be TRLT of the longest lead time component plus the routing time.

Hi,

Thank you for quick reply.

Could you please suggest me, How I can use componentes availability check with using 40 strategy.

I need to consider header material as well as components material availability check in sales order

please reply.

Hi Vikas,

That functionality does not exist in R/3. Strategy 40 usually performs Sales order availability check only against the supply elements that already exist (eg, existing production orders, existing stock, etc.), and then optionally will confirm the sales order at lead time of the part being sold (header item). There is no reference to availability of any component parts.

APO offers the functionality you seek. In APO, you would use either Capable to Promise or Multilevel Availability check. Unfortunately, if you do not already have an APO instance already set up as a companion to your R/3 system, the implementation is quite a bit of work.
