Production order scheduling date:

Short description for scenario:

One FG saleable material having BOM with one RAW and two SFG at two levels below.

Customer wants to reduce delay in lead times when one of the material is available at assembly level.

Now in Current scenario, Production order scheduled start date for operation is always set at the end date of production order finish date as per SMK.

Requirement here is how we can adjust scheduling of production order start date so that It will always adjust the dates of next assembly accordingly.


If we have lead time on
materials as shown below.










PR (l)







Date schedules of the various component:

Order Mat Av RAW 23-Aug 30-Aug 7/1/2013 RAW 7/12/2013 Start Finish PP 31-Aug 4-Sep 7/1/2013 PP 7/17/2013 Release Order mat av PR(l) 5-Sep 5-Sep 20-Sep 7/1/2013 PR(l) 8/1/2013 Start Finish PP 21-Sep 26-Sep 7/1/2013 FG 8/6/2013 Pick&Pack 1 GI 27-Aug Transportation 1~5 Scheduler 28-Sep

New Requirement:

If any of the material is available at the time ATP check in order scheduled start date should shift to
order start date so that no time gap is there for delivery of the FG material.

In short, Is there any way so that we can shift scheduled production start date to the basic order start date in case of forward scheduling.


If RAW material is available at
the start of the production order of the SFG material.

Production order scheduling date
for the SFG order should shift back to availability date(start date in case) of
the raw material.

Pls suggest if any possible sap functionality perform these actions.
