Material Availability Check for Expiration Acknowledgement
Dear PP Gurus
Currently we have a new requirement from our client,
The scenario is as follows:
Add functionality to the availability check that will enable it to consider
material batches that expire before the planned/process order finish date
to be excluded as available for those orders.
For Example: Material ABC has batch 123 with an expiration of 31-May-2009
(5 each on hand) and batch 456 with an expiration of 31-July-2009 (3
each on hand). Order number 200xxxx is scheduled to finish on
05-June-2009 and has material ABC on its material list for a quantity
of 5 each. When material availability for order 200xxxx is checked,
we would like for the system to indicate that there is a material
shortage of 2 each. In this situation, this is because batch 123
will expire before the 05-June-2009 finish date and batch 456 does
not have a sufficient quantity (3 each) to meet the full requirement
of 5 each for order 200xxxx.
I request you to let me know if there is any SAP OSS message that can be applied which can fulfill the requirement or if there is any user exit / enhancement that can be considered for this?
Is there any other option available to cover this scenario.
Thanks & Regards,
