restrict quantity received ?

Is there a way to restrict the quantity received?

I know we have unlimited u201Ccheckedu201D on the info records.

My question is: is there a higher level check at a PO level

(like release strategy) that could prevent this type of error from


material PO qty Received Quantity

A 5 340

It is being noticed this gross type of error due to the UOM being incorrect.

Seems there was a rather large error in receiving PO for

material A from vendor B. The receipt was intended to be for

several hundred individual lites, however, several hundred RACKs were

received instead. The UOM was not changed from RA to LE during the receiving.

This caused a large quantity discrepancy and also a very large dollar discrepancy.


You customize your purchasing value in IMG and assign this key to your material master.

you can then override the tolerance individually in info record or directly in the PO.

There is no higher instance, that restricts an unlimeted overdelivery.
