GATP in SAP stands for Global Available-to-Promise, a functionality in SAP that helps to check the availability of products or resources for customer orders. GATP is part of the SAP SCM (Supply Chain Management) module and integrates with other modules such as SD (Sales and Distribution) and PP (Production Planning).
This training pdf document covers four main topics related to GATP: Basic ATP (Available to Promise) Check, Transportation and Shipment Scheduling, Rules Based Availability Check, and Backorder Processing. Each topic is explained with detailed steps and screenshots.
- Basic ATP Check: This section explains how an ATP check verifies that a requested product can be provided by the company in the requested quantity and on the requested date. It provides step-by-step instructions for creating a sales order and reviewing the availability and order confirmation situation.
- Transportation and Shipment Scheduling: This topic covers how activities are backward scheduled based on the requested delivery date. It provides examples of different cases, such as when the Material Availability Date (MAD) is in the past.
- Rules Based Availability Check: This section explains how to create sales orders and review proposals created for various substitute locations. It also covers location substitution, including drop shipment and non-drop shipment.
- Backorder Processing: This topic provides instructions for opening the batch backorder processing screen and filling in relevant fields for generating a backorder processing run. It also explains how backorder processing helps in robbing confirmation from lower priority sales orders to satisfy higher priority sales orders.
