This procedure is used to manually allocate a manufacturing order line by connecting it to one or more locations and lot numbers (if needed). Moreover, all or part of the quantity in a manufacturing order line can be allocated.
After using this procedure, a manufacturing order line is over, fully or partly allocated. Over/Full allocation results in status '33' (allocated) for the component line. Partial allocation results in status '23' (one part allocated with remaining quantity to be allocated).
In 'Settings – Warehouse planning control' (CRS701), a new tolerance field, ‘Over allocation deviation’ (OADE), controls the allowed over-allocation (percentage) when performing manual allocation in 'Allocation. Perform Detailed' (MMS121).
A manufacturing component material line must be specified that is not fully printed in a picking list or fully delivered.
Columns Lot Ref 2, Lot Ref 1, Location and Dynamic Attribute description are also opened and show important fashion-related information that is used to select the location to allocate.
An over-allocation quantity is allowed for manually allocated items that are part of a manufacturing order. This over-allocated quantity is controlled by the tolerance field ‘Over allocation deviation’ (OADE) in 'Settings – Warehouse planning control' (CRS701) which permits allocation of a percentage over the ordered quantity.
