Create Delivery immediately once the stock is updated.

Hi All,

Currently Deliveries are auto-generated 5 days before the delivery date (at the line item level). The line item date matches the sales order header level “Requested Delivery Date” initially. If material is not available (including allocations against the material) at the time of order creation, the line items are rescheduled to the longest leadtime (in material master) of the line items that are short.

Business expectations are to ship orders as soon as they are ready, and with the Sales Order “Requested Delivery Date” being the commitment date to the customer for the ship date.

Due to the way SAP sales orders reschedule their line items and the subsequent delay in Delivery order creation, it leads to manual intervention to process orders once the material is available.

example 1:

oStart date of scenario = Feb 27, 2017

oQty 100 on shelf

o1st sales order to needs 500 units, and Sales Order due date (header level / customer commitment date) = Feb 28, 2017

§Not enough material, so no delivery is created

§Currently, the sales order line item reschedules forwards to account for product leadtime (say 10 days in MM)

oMRP sees the shortage and creates a replenishment signal for 400 units to account for the shortage, due in 10 business days (March 13)

oBusiness manually prioritizes the production order, and its completed on March 2, 2017

§currently the 1st sales order won't try to convert to a delivery, even though there is stock, until 5 days before its line item schedule date (March 6th, = March 13 - 5 business days)

The business wants the delivery to create immediately after the material becomes available on March 2; as it is now, business manually identifies material is ready for order & forces the delivery to create.

example 2:

oStart date of scenario = Feb 27, 2017

oQty 10 on shelf

o1st sales order to needs 15 units, and Sales Order due date (header level / customer commitment date) = Feb 28, 2017

§Not enough material, so no delivery is created

§Currently, the sales order line item reschedules forwards to account for product leadtime (say 10 days in MM)

oProduction order created as combo of Sales Order demand and safety stock / max stock for Qty 15 (more than enough to satisfy the Sales Order), its prioritized and completed on Feb 28th

o2nd Sales order comes in on March 1, Qty 5. There is more than enough material on the shelf, including allocated material, so it creates a Delivery immediately

1st Sales order is still waiting to release, even though it came in 1st and there is enough material on the shelf

Is there any standard setting for this requirement?

All helps are much appreciated.
