You can use this key while creating a PO when you want the Vendor to confirm the Quantities and the Date/time of the Delivery after they have received your order and the vendor will supply the material according to your requirement.

After the Vendor confirms the delivery Qty and schedule dates, the user will need to Update the same in the Confirmation TAB. Also used in for EDI cases.

If you check the Acknowledgement required in Pur Val key, (in the Material Master), like other Values, the Tolerance, Reminders etc. , this Confirmation Check will be enabled in PO Confirmation TAB using Material Master Settings. (Used for EDI)

Some companies use this requirement to plan their Logistics and MPS (Master Production Schedule) for the availability of Material or use it as to plan Inbound Deliveries or Rough GR depending upon the Business Scenario using EDI set up.

Hope this helps,
