Metals Characteristics based Available to Promise

Purpose/Use
In the metals industry it is common that materials are batch managed. Even if materials have the same identification number they may vary on the batch level, e.g. the quality-grade may vary dependent on the valuation during the quality check. This information is stored on characteristics during goods receipt. If a customer requires a certain quality he can specify the desired grade. With an activated characteristic based availability check we are now able to consider only such inventory that meets the customers requirement. During this check the valuation of the line item of the sales order is transferred to APO and it is checked if matching characteristic combinations on batch level exists. If there is no matching batch available (or a receipt element) the system will not confirm the order.
