Available-To-Promise is a term describing the Order Promising practice to reserve available inventory or supply and calculate a schedule shipment date based on the reserved supply and order characteristics. ATP is typically receiving input from Plan Deliver. ATP enables a response to the customer and/or initiating fulfillment of the order prior to the next run of the Plan Deliver process.
ATP is typically applied where a customer requires an instantaneous response to a newly submitted order or where Pick, Pack and Ship may need to occur before the next occurrence of Plan Deliver.
Available-To-Promise may also be applied to quotations, optionally reserving inventory/supply until the quote expires.Community Importance Rating:
