 At What Level is the Availability Checked? Locate this document in the navigation structure

The availability check can be carried out at plant, or at storage location level. At which level the check is actually carried out depends on the data maintained in the material component and the checking scope: If a storage location is specified in the reservation, the check is carried out at storage location level, unless the checking scope specifies that the check should always be carried out at plant level.

Note Note

If a check is carried out at storage location level and the components are available, the system automatically carries out an additional check at plant level. For performance reasons we recommend that you only carry out this type of check where required.

End of the note.

If, during an availability check, a material requirement exists with reference to a sales order / project, the check is carried out in the individual planning section of the sales order / project.
