3366020 - Error BS051 "Create delivery not allowed (Sys. status Cost, object VB0000***)" occurs when creating the outbound delivery


When creating a delivery with reference to the sales order in VA02 or VL01N, error BS051 occurs: "Create delivery" not allowed (Sys. status Cost, object VB0000***).

It is suggested by the below two KBAs to carry out the costing:

  • KBA 2877570 - Error BS051 while creating a Delivery from Sales Order
  • KBA 2994466 - Error "Create delivery not allowed (Sys. Status Cost, object VB&)" (BS051) when creating an outbound delivery with reference to a sales order - SAP S/4HANA Cloud

This article describes an alternate way to run the complete cycle for make-to-order process without sales order costing, when carrying out the costing for the sales order is not a preferred way.




Use the strategy group B6 (requirement type BB6) where costing is permitted but not required. In this case, the material price is transferred into condition type PCIP.

Check more details from the scope item BJE - Make-to-Order Production - Finished Goods Sales and Final Assembly with the example material FG228.
