Taking GR Quantity into Account in Release Order Documentation

Description

Up to Release 4.0A the ordered quantity is recorded in the release order documentation when release orders are created against a contract. The goods receipt (GR) quantity is not taken into account in the release order documentation when goods receipts are entered against the order item since it is assumed that the complete quantity ordered is delivered (although several GRs may be involved).

As of Release 4.0B the system takes the GR quantity into account in the release order documentation, provided that the "delivery completed" indicator or the deletion indicator has been set for the item to signify that no further GRs are expected. (Both indicators can be set manually. The "delivery completed" indicator can also be set automatically at the time of goods receipt, and the deletion indicator can also be set automatically by the archiving program.)

In the case of perpetual underdeliveries by the vendor, this enables the contract to be used longer before the target quantity is reached.
