You have reached the end of this course.

After completing it, you now know the basic aspects of the availability check: if there is sufficient cumulative ATP quantity on the requirement date of a sales order item, the material is available.

You can also interpret the results of the availability check in the sales order correctly: confirmations are documented in the sales order via confirmed schedule lines. Only confirmed schedule lines can be delivered to the customer.
