Create Delivery any time before requested delivery date.

Hello Experts,

I have one business requirement.

Business wants, when ever user want to create the delivery he can, even before the material availability date /quantity confirmation date.

Suppose when we create the Sales Order system gives requested delivery date as 10th Dec 2013, based on requested delivery date system run backward scheduling and after deducting transportation/pick/pack/loading time suppose system gives me Material Availability date : 5th Dec 2013. now I can create the delivery on 5th dec or after 5th dec only, but can not create the delivery before 5th Dec.

for one or two sales order user can go to change mode of Sales order and than change the delivery date accordingly so user can create the delivery when ever he wants. But user wants to create the delivery for the thousands of sales orders, and user can not change the requested delivery data one by one, more over thousands of sales order may have different requested delivery and user wants to create the delivery on 30th Nov only,

Kindly suggest me how we can achieve it.

Note: product is always available in enough quantity

Note: we want to achieve it for one specific sales order type.

Note: we are not looking for cash sales / rush order in which delivery is created automatically once SO is saved.

Note: our main requirement is, when ever user want to create the delivery he can, even before the material availability date /quantity confirmation date.


Kindly help me out.

I am still waiting for experts reply.

Thanks,

    Hi Prashant,

    The most simple solution that i can think of is to maintain Schedule Line category determination to CN i.e. No material planning and Replenishment lead time in material master as 0. This will result in confirming of schedule lines on the date on which order is created.

      Hello Prashant,

      I thing You can deactivate transfer of requirements at schedule line level please check Req/assembly should be blank in VOV6 and check assignment of schedule line category there combination of item category ,MRP type and schedule line category and MRP type should be ND(No planning).

      Availability check for sales should be blank

      please check i am not confirm

      thanks & Regards

    """"Business wants, when ever user want to create the delivery he can, even before the material availability date /quantity confirmation date."""---Before confirmation date it is not at all possible....

    See Actually--you are going in a reverse manner..

    Pl remember that Once any material entered then system will do the availability check at Plant level(always at one plant level only) and system throws the actual availability date based on the days mentioned in material master as (inter/external procurement in days) and after getting material availability date system adds the pick/pack/load times and shipping time and finally gives the delivery date..

    But you need to remember that system first do backward scheduling as per the delivery date requested by customer-(suppose customer requested after 10 days--and Mat.Avbl date+Pick+pack+Load+Shipping time is 7 days then system will add 7 days to the current date and shows the sch.line date as 9th Dec)

    Hope you understood what i am sharing here.Let us come to your scenario.

    Why can't you delete all the dates mentioned as Inter/External activity+pick/pack/load(if possible Try to make blank in your shipping point)

    Also maintain Availability check as KP in your material master.

    So your user can create the delivery on the same date when he created the order too.

    Hi,

    Note: product is always available in enough quantity

    Tell me one thing ,are you creating sales orders with same route and same shipping point or different ?

    If same route and same shipping point then if you have enough stock in plant then system will confirm requested delivery date.

    Thanks,

    • Hi,

      I can say one thing ,you are not understanding the concept of ATP process in SAP.Lets say,

      Step1:

      If you have always material quantity ,then if you keep any picking ,packing ,and transit times then system will go to backward process to consider all times to give requested delivery date (if you have always material quantity then system will give requested delivery as current date every time).

      Step2:

      If you don't keep, these times then system will give you requested delivery date as current date.

      Thanks,
