Dear Steven,

unfortunately there is really no good documentation of all possible restrictions of using multiple schedule lines in the assembly processing. But it is really the case.

From SAP side the existance of such restrictions is partially documented in the FAQ note 764611. Here you can find:

1. Question:

Can there be several schedule lines for each sales order item with a static assembly?

In general, static assembly processing is designed to use one

requested schedule line for each item in the sales order. However, you

can also use static assembly processing if several requested schedule

lines exist for each item in the sales order. However, there are

restrictions.

2. Question:

What are the restrictions with several schedule lines in the sales order

in connection with static assembly processing?

The following restrictions exist for the static assembly:

2a. When you change a sales order, the schedule lines may be confirmed

at a later date than is possible.

Example: During the creation, two requested schedule lines can be

confirmed. Then the receipt is postponed for one component so that the

second schedule line can no longer be confirmed at the requested date

although the first schedule line could still be confirmed at the

requested date. However, during a further availability check, the first

schedule line is no longer confirmed at the requested date.

The system behaves as described above because the availability check

assumes that the requirement quantity that is confirmed for the

component for the first schedule line of the header material is

confirmed for the same component for the second schedule line.

2b. Further restrictions may exist. This list does not claim to be

complete.

==========================================

As I have already said, quite generally the process is not forbidden. But it seems to be that sometimes you will see some unexpected reactions from the system because the case of multiple schedule lines was never specially designed, never tested and it is possible that the system will reacts not as expected.

But generally, the process is not forbidden. You can try to start and to test.

Unfortunately the note 764611 is the only note where the restrictions of using multiple schedule lines in assembly processing are mentioned.

And because the process itself is not tested from SAP side, we cannot exclude the unexpected system response in some cases. Please test the process very carefully.

I hope on your understanding that it is impossible to describe all possible restrictions of such a process. Therefore their existance only mentioned in the note 764611.

I hope nevertheless, that this info helps you a little bit further.

Kind regards,
