Requirement mapping.

Hi SAP Professionals,

I'm not getting any clue how to map the following requirement? Please go through the scenario.

Scenario:

After Inquiry preparation following acitivities should done:

1. look up of the finished product availability; whether it is present or likely to be present within the required delivery duration. If it is available it is soft blocked. But all this could not reserve the finished product could not reserve the available capacities.

2. If it is not available, the inquiry is sent to Production Planning Incharge, who will calculate and forward "Delivery Lead Time Response".

Is it possible in standard SAP system to calculate "Delivery Lead Time Response" after Inquiry creation and before creation of quotation?

Regards,

Hi Abu,

You are a little confusing in your question, but it sounds like you want the system to calculate delivery lead time, based on some factor other than the availability of existing supply elements (eg, stock, purchase/production order, etc).

Depending on the detailed requirements, SAP may be able to perform that calculation for you.

A common method is to perform ATP against a forecast, in which the Production manager has already certified that the forecasted production plan is do-able.

Another method would be to perform ATP against production capacity, using CTP in SCM.

In both cases, the system can be configured to confirm the sales document UPON ENTRY, saving your production people from having to manually 'answer' each question about when the product can be delivered.

ATP against Forecast is available in Standard SAP ERP as well as in SAP APO. ATP against capacity is available using SAP SCM PP/DS.

Consult with your ERP SD lead, or with your SCM GATP lead, to help you with the solution.

Hi,

As I clearly mentioned, it is completely MTO scenario. At Quotation creation level PP Incharge is calculating Delivery Lead Time based on the material, capacity availability and scheduling for existing production orders.

Hi Rajesha,

we mapped the above mentioned process as below.

1. Creta Enquiry (VA11)

a. Automatic mail trigerred to Head PPC through Workflow

b. Display Enquiry list (VA15)

Workaround:

2. Get the appropriate Lot/Quantity from Enquiry created by SD user. Select Appropriate Routing Counter (CA02) and run 'Scheduling' transaction using 'Extra' on Menu Bar.

3. Update Material Master for FG for that specific lot (CA96). Lot size dependent Inhouse Production Time will be reflected in 'Workscheduling' view of FG Material Master Record.

4. While creating Quotation this time will automatically reflected as Schedule lines for the manufacturing of that FG.

Note: I'm not that much assured whether Updation from Routing of FG will take 'Material Lead Time' into consideration?

Optimistic Solution:

2. While creating/chaging Enquiry (VA11 or VA12) using GATP logic of APO-PPDS one can check the Production Delivery Date taking Material as well as Operation Lead time, even taking SD lead time into consideration. Even he can check the present Capacity Load and the Scheduling workcenter wise/order wise. It is also possible at Quotation Creation Level. Even using this logic we can see bucket scheduling (of 15 days) and many more as per client expectations and SAP Product strength.

hi

Standard SAP allows for ATP (Available to Promise) check at quotaton level. probably, you can use this feature to provide the delivery lead time..

Thanks

Cannot understand "But all this could not reserve the finished product could not reserve the available capacities"

Hi Rajesha,

Requirement:

While creating the Quotation we need to give the "Delivery Lead Time" to Sales Department after taking input from Production Department. Kindly note it is purely MTO scenario.
