ATP is available to promise.
It is used to promise fulfilling a demand. The demand could be a sales order or a work order.
If you do not use OM nor WIP, where would you like to use the ATP functionality?
we do issuance via miscellaneous issue
Cant it be used for this
hmm - don't think so.
When you do a misc. issue, do you allow the inventory to go -ve?
yes we do allow
but one drawback is tht we cant track the issuance against a PO or a PO receipt or a requisition
Unless you start using lot control or serial control, you can not track inventory to a specific receipt. And I still can not see where ATP will help you.
Hope this answers your question
