Planned Duration of Warehouse task

Hi,

I have configured the planned duration parameters for Warehouse task creation under path (EWM -> Cross process settings -> WT -> Define planned duration of movements in Warehouse), in order to determine the planned completion date/time according to the source storage type from which the stock is picked, when the Warehouse task is created.

But when I released the wave, warehouse tasks are not created with the planned completion date/time as mentioned under the above path stated. Instead the planned completion date/time is determined from the departure date/time from yard mentioned in the ODO.

Basically I want to calculate the time taken for the Warehouse order according to the summation of planned duration time of Warehouse tasks (as defined in the above path) associated with that Warehouse Order.

Could you please suggest..?

Regards,

Shravan

    Hi Shravan,

    H1 (Help doc) under path (EWM -> Cross process settings -> WT -> Define planned duration of movements in Warehouse) states

    "If EWM has already set a planned closing date/time for a WT using the wave or storage process, it does not use the planned closing date/time from this IMG activity, instead it uses the one from the wave or storage process".

    With regards,

      Hi Mrinal,

      Thanks for your reply.

      There are no time attributes setting in wave template and storage process defined. So I expect system to take the value from this IMG activity (i.e. Define planned duration for Goods movements).

      But the system takes the planned completion date/time of warehouse task as planned departure date/time from the yard in the ODO.

      As mentioned already, I want the system to calculate the planned completion date/time as summation of planned completion time of each WT derived from this IMG activity.

      Please let me know how to achieve this

      Regards,

    Hi,

    ", in order to determine the planned completion date/time according to the source storage type from which the stock is picked, when the Warehouse task is created."

    I don't think this is supposed to be that way.

    The "planned completion time" is (AFAIK) always taken from the ODO (or it comes from the wave, and the time from the ODO is take for the wave option). Because this is the important time. The other times you can maintain (like the planned duration parameters) are used for a backward scheduling to calculate when you have to start with the WT (= latest start date).
