Hi Preetam,

There are various categories underwhich ATP check

for deliveries is involved

1) You cannot carry out rules-based ATP for the delivery.

2) If you create a delivery without reference to a sales order

transfers the requirements to SAP APO. The system carries out

an ATP check

3) ATP check will be carried out for partial delivery quantity

which will be shown as proposal for check

Preetam,

After creating the supporting configuration, APO ATP checking is thereafter 'turned on' by creating and activating an ATP integration model in the ERP. Generally, it is done by material/plant combination. Therefore, if you turn on ATP checking for Sales orders, you also turn it on for all other types of docs (including deliveries) for that particular material/plant combination.

I hope you have thought out this whole process. The main reason for using ATP checking in APO is that APO has a richer suite of ATP solutions. If your business requirements are satisfied by the ATP checking in ERP, then it makes no sense to spend the money to implement ATP in APO. Your original issue had to do with making released production orders relevant for ATP for deliveries. If this is the only new requirement, then this can easily be managed in ERP. OVZ9>select your Availability check, with checking rule B (deliveries). Under "incl production orders" select 'F'. From a business perspective, this means that some of your deliveries will be created without stock on hand, and therefore will not be immediately shippable. You need to make sure that this process change is integrated throughout your warehouses.

And, to your final question. If your delivery item category(s) are already relevant for ATP checking in ERP, they will also be relevant for ATP checking in APO. Since deliveries do not use RBA, you do not have to worry about adding new ERP delivery item categories for the conversion to APO ATP checking. Most commonly in APO, one uses only the 'product check' (similar to the standard ERP ATP check) for deliveries.

Hi,

By default delivery item category is not relevant for Availability check . In t code 0VLP , Look for your delivery item category and check value of AvailckhOFF = " " , blank means check availability and X mean av check is Off.

It depends what is your business requirement, some business do not want to av check in sales order and they want to do av check in delivery only. some business wants to do only in sales order.

Doing GATP check does not mean necessarily doing Rules based location/ product substitution.

If your integration model is on for ATP check and other config supports av check then you can perform av check in sales order and in delivery also.

Preetam,

You can configure scope of check in SCM

IMG>APO>GATP>Product availability check>Maintain check control. Select your ATP group and Business event 'B' in the 'ATP Check Control General folder. You can select which types of production orders you wish to consider in the ATP Check Control Scope of check subfolder.

Rgds,
