First, let`s understand what JIT scheduling is. JIT (Just in Time) is a production strategy where materials are delivered to a production line exactly when they are needed. This strategy reduces inventory costs and ensures that products are produced efficiently.

To fix this error, you need to create a JIT scheduling agreement for the customer`s material. Follow these steps:
1. Go to the SAP menu and select “Logistics” > “Materials Management” > “Purchasing” > “Scheduling Agreement” > “Create.”
2. Enter the supplier`s name and the material that needs to be delivered.
3. Enter the delivery schedule, including the start and end dates, and the quantity of materials to be delivered.
4. Save the scheduling agreement.
Once the scheduling agreement is created, you can go back to the production line and schedule the delivery of materials using the agreement.
In conclusion, the “No JIT scheduling agreement determined for customer material” error is a common issue in SAP. However, it is easily fixed by creating a JIT scheduling agreement for the customer`s material.
