GR processing time and PDT

We have a requirement to ship every other Friday (every 10 days).  Would we set the GR processing time to 10 in the material master?  Planned delivery time is 35 days.

Also, GR processing time of 2 would be every Tuesday, 3 Wednesday, etc.  Is that correct?

Please advise.

Thank you.

    Actually, the material will ship from the VENDOR every 2 Fridays, not ship from our warehouse. I have set GR processing time in the material master at 20 and that seems to hit the every 2nd Friday, but that doesn't make sense, given that this is a 5 day week. Would 5, 10, 15 be Fridays? Planned delivery time is 35 days in this case.

    • Thank you.  You are correct.  The issue with the planning calendar was the forecasting in MD64.  The forecast is listed in periods and the user would have to have another document to see which period corresponds to what calendar date and that wasn't a viable option for them.  We had to figure out some work around that would yield similar results, however as you say, it is dependent on the factory calendar.  The user will need to monitor MRP and tweak the dates if they do not fall on Fridays.  I very much appreciate all of your input.  It was very valuable.

    In MD64, you have day format or other formats etc
