    HI Sanket,

    Release Creation profile is the one which actually makes the difference between JIT schedule and Forecast delivery schedule. IF you don't assign any release creation profile to the scheduling agreement then there is no difference between JIT & forecast delivery schedule. This Can be understand in print out of messages LPJ1 & LPH1 for same schedule lines. It also controls which schedules lines are to be sent in which type of release. Ex. only NEw, changed, next date etc.

    Create release creation profile with below details in aggregation tab.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>JIT>>>>>>>>Forecast

    No agregation 0>>>3>>>>>>>>0>>2

    Daily Aggregation 4>>7>>>>>>3>>5

    Weekly aggregation(blank)>>>>6>>30 (Not possible with JIT)

    Monthly aggregation(blank) >>>>31>>>180 (Not possible with JIT)

    Ex. In ME38 maintain schedule lines as below

    date>>>>>>>Qty>>>>time

    30.08.2013>>15>>>>14.30

    30.08.2013>>>20>>>15.30

    31.08.2013>>>20>>>>15.30

    01.09.2013>>>15>>>>16.30

    01.09.2013>>>>15>>>18.30

    02.09.2013>>>>30>>>14.30

    02.09.2013>>>>15>>>16.30

    03.09.2013>>>>50>>>>18.30

    04.09.2013>>>>30>>>14.30

    04.09.2013>>>>15>>>16.30

    06.09.2013>>>>40>>>16.30

    10.09.2013>>>>30>>>16.30

    15.09.2013>>>50>>>14.30

    01.10.2013>>>>50

    01.11.2013>>>>30 so on on first of every month till next 12 months

    Generate JIT & forecast release without assigning any release creation profile.

    Result: All schedule lines will be sent as maintained above.

    Now assign Release creation profile & generate both JIT & forecast

    Result: JIT

    30.08.2013>>15>>>>14.30

    30.08.2013>>>20>>>15.30

    31.08.2013>>>20>>>>15.30

    01.09.2013>>>15>>>>16.30

    01.09.2013>>>>15>>>18.30

    02.09.2013>>>>45

    03.09.2013>>>>50

    04.09.2013>>>>30

    Result: Forecast

    30.08.2013>>15>>>>14.30

    30.08.2013>>>20>>>15.30

    31.08.2013>>>20>>>>15.30

    01.09.2013>>>30

    02.09.2013>>>>45

    03.09.2013>>>>50

    Week X >>>115

    Week Y >>>50

    Week Z>>>50

    month 11 >>30

    month 12 >> 30

    month 1 >>>30

    month 2 >>30

    month 3 >> 30

    note: the above is approx guess may not be same depends on working days

    Here system will not consider the remaining schedule lines after 7th day in JIT or 180th day in forecast day from today as maintained in creation profile(release horizon: total work days).

    Hope it is helpful
