Global Availability to Promise (GATP)

Efficiently Meet the Demand and Delivery Promises


What is GATP?

Global Available-to-Promise is a module in SAP Advanced Planning and Optimization (APO) that enables organizations to combine demand information from various sources into one central repository in the SAP ERP. In other words, when a customer places an order, it checks to see if the product that was ordered can be confirmed, contingent on whether the product is coming out of the available stock or from production. Essentially, it tries to fulfill customer demands by checking against the current stock at hand by using Available to Promise (ATP) rules. This helps confirm if the customer orders can be delivered. If the demand cannot be fulfilled using the stock at hand, then the system triggers production.

One of the crucial ways in which it differs from general ATP is that GATP analyzes the entire supply chain network including other plants, alternative locations, and product substitutions. This enables organizations maximize serviceability and reduces client demand loss.
