Scheduling for external supply using Scheduling Agreement

Hi experts,

We are using reorder point planning (VB) with scheduling agreement in order to trigger the replenishment automatically. It is working fine, but I have a doubt regarding the scheduling of the delivery dates.

The delivery planned time is 3 days and I know that the system uses calendar days to perform forward scheduling. Therefore, when the material shortage is detected on Monday (01.02), the delivery date will be scheduled on Thursday (04.02). However, if a shortage is detected on Friday (05.02), the delivery date will be scheduled on next Monday (08.02). The problem is that the supplier does not take into account Saturdays and Sundays and only will be able to delivery on next Wednesday (10.02).

Could you please give me suggestions about this scenario?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Marcos

    Hi experts,

    Is it possible not to take into account Saturday and Sundays when scheduling external supply? I know that the standard uses calendar days, but is there any BADI for that?

    Thanks and regards,

    Marcos

    Hello Marcos,

    As such there is no direct relation between the reorder point and the planned delivery time it represents the lead time for the vendor.

    You can use BADI MD_CHANGE_MRP_DATA import and export parameters have sufficient data to make changes in MRP date

    Also note you have an option in OMDT to consider planned delivery time from inforecords or Agreement

    Best Regards,

    Hello Marcos

    There is no BAdI that allows you to calculate the planned delivery date according to the factory calendar. BAdI MD_CHANGE_MRP_DATA can be used to manipulate the dates from an MRP perspective, but it will not save those changes into the scheduling agreement.

    Maybe you can use a goods receipt processing time as a workaround, since the goods receipt processing time is calculated in workdays.
