ATP (confirm partial availability) for simple discontinuation
Dear SAP Guru,
we have some issues regarding ATP (confirm partial availability in production scheduling profile set) and simple discontinuation (set in material master MRP4), for example MM-DISC is to be followed up to MM-FOLL,
MRP is run without considering ATP, if material to be discontinued is not enough, required is directed to follow up in planned order.
Planned order A 100 PCS, will required component
1. AA 100 PCS
2. MM-DISC 75 PCS (only 75 in stock, requirement is directed to MM-FOLL for 25 PCS)
3. MM-FOLL 25 PCS
We have problem when planned order is converted to production order, we have confirm quantity 0 set (since AA is zero so nothing is committed), so the production order component will be
1. AA 100 PCS --> not commited
2. MM-DISC 75 PCS --> not commited
in MRP run we need to buy againMM-DISC 25 PCS, so the discontinuation process is always failed due to ATP.
Please kindly share you advice, or can we make ATP in production order just use component from planned order??
Thank you very much.
