What Factors Impact Route Time Variation?

Hi All,

I'm looking for a resource to understand how routes are determined by SAP, what the system-generated dates are, what inputs impact route planning and date planning in the system (e.g. plant hours/days, customer receiving hours/days) and how they impact.

Basically, we have the problem that our routes which say 3 day are turning out to be 2 days or 5 days.  I want to work on standardizing, but don't know where to start.

Thanks!

-Max

    When SAP Calculates from the RAD to the material availability date, I want to know what are all of the factors considered in how the calculation is made.

    Here are the components that are known:

    • transportation planning time
    • route time
    • plant hours/dc hours
    • cusotmer hours

    We want to know how these factors above are impacting the dates below(or if there are any other factors?):

    System generated dates:

    • RAD (EDI input)
    • Material Availability
    • Load Date
    • Planned GI Date
    • Pick/Pack Date?
