Dates and quantities for a sales order item are stored in schedule lines. For example, the requested quantity and date are contained in a request schedule line. If availability check is carried out, then confirmed quantities and dates are stored in confirmation schedule lines.
The following schedule line types are available:
The request schedule line contains the quantity for the first requested delivery date for the customer.
The confirmation schedule line contains the quantity that is deliverable for the date entered, according to the availability check in the SAP Advanced Planning and Optimization (SAP APO). An availability check in SAP APO is only carried out if an ATP profile is entered in Customizing for the item category for the item which the schedule line belongs to.
You can find further information in the implementation guide under Customer Relationship Management ® Basic Functions ® Availability Check ®

The delivery group schedule line is automatically generated when the corresponding item is assigned to a delivery group.

The schedule line dates are assigned to specific time zones. In this way, you can always guarantee that you deliver the products to your customer at the requested time in the relevant time zone. The system copies the time zone from the central address data for the customer.
To view the schedule lines for a sales order item in the SAP Graphic User Interface (SAPGUI), double-click on the sales order item and choose the Schedule Lines tab.
You can change only the requested quantity/date schedule line manually.
