The automatic transfer of the customer’s delivery call-offs to the supplier’s SAP system has now become standard. The tolerance check available in the SAP system, however, only compares call-off schedules and quantities of two sequential call-offs. The tolerance check does not notice gradual increases meaning that call-off quantities are transferred unfiltered into the system.
In contrast, the alogis-Abruf-Toleranzprüfung immediately recognises these gradual increases because multiple call-off generations can be taken into account. As a threshold, the call-off tolerance check uses the absolute or relative differences concerning automotive-typical cumulative quantities or absolute call-off quantities.
Which parameters the call-off tolerance check includes in the calculations can be flexibly controlled using the tolerance profile. A material or customer can be allocated multiple profiles and can be taken into account when the check is carried out. The call-off tolerance check can therefore warn dispatchers in good time before delivery call-offs have been transferred and prevent bottleneck situations. The reaction to tolerance deviations depends on the application. It ranges from the error message to the prevention of the posting.
The call-off tolerance check can be integrated into the logistics process chain at various points, for example at EDI entry or in the delivery schedule processing.
