The product availability check is a background function that provides information on when, and in which quantity, a requirement (for example, a sales order item) can be fulfilled. The result of the product availability check is a confirmation. After the check is executed, the quantity is reserved and unavailable for any other requirements.
The product availability check compares a requirement with elements that influence the quantity of a material available at a given time, such as stock, sales orders, deliveries, purchase orders, and purchase requisitions. These elements determine the quantity of material available in stock today and in the future.
The product availability check calculates the quantity and the date that can be confirmed.
