In the SD customer orders are saved in orders and scheduling agreements. Due to this open quantities are created, which are relevant in respect to requirements (MD04, independent requirements) or deliveries (delivery due list). Deliveries reduce the open quantities, independent of goods movement status (goods issue).

Especially in case of scheduling agreements, which often are changed by electronic delivery schedules (DELINS, forecast/JIT delivery schedules), the open quantities deviate more or less frequently. This always enables an up-to date display of the situation but however complicates the determination of the situation at a certain point in time and the comparison with prior situations.

The Bensberg component ‘open quantities’ supports the user upon the view and analysis of all available quantities (orders and scheduling agreements) at a requested time by the storage of data sets. Especially by comparing these data sets, alterations can be identified and evaluated.
