Mtl Availability Problem @ Production Order Release
For production order creation and order release we have different types of availability checks:
1: Order creation: check all purchase orders (ZP02)
2: Order release: do not take purchase orders into account (ZV02)
In the material master the field "availability check" is always set to 02.
The problem with this is that as soon as we want to release a production order, the future purchase orders are not taken into account, but the corresponding production orders (created ones) are. This yields missing parts at release, even though there is enough in stock.
The following options are now selected for ZV02:
[ ] incl. purchase orders
[ ] incl. purchase reqs
[V] incl. dependent reqs
[V] incl. reservations
[V] incl. sales reqmts
[V] incl. deliveries
[ ] incl. ship notific.
incl depend reservat [x] all
incl rel order reqs [ ] do not check
incl planned orders [ ] do not check
incl production orders [x] all
I tried changing OPPJ. Things that do not work or are unwanted are:
changing ZP02 identical to ZV02, since purchase orders should be included for orders in the future
changing ZV02 identical to ZP02, since purchase orders confirmed to today might be delivered tomorrow, which would yield missing parts.
changing ZV02, incl. Production orders from [x] to [F]. Still missing parts @ release.
Thanks in advance.
