Purchasing: Planned delivery time

I have a material that are being purchased from 2 vendors. one vendor delivers the material in 2 days. the other takes 20 days. In the material master, I have to maintain the planned delivery time. As per the help info, I will need to maintain the average time here. So, that would be 11 days.

So, when I run MRP, 11 days will be taken as the planned delivery time. My planning is not going to be accurate if I choose any of the vendors.

Can anyone guide me how I can take care of this scenario?

    Raj,

    You maintain your planned delivery times for each vendor in your info records.

    You need to ensure you have flagged the <i>scheduling info record/agreem.</i> flag (Determine Planned Delivery Time) in transaction OPPQ.

    You also need to ensure that you have maintained source list entries for your vendors that are relevant for MRP.

    Now the MRP run will consider the planned delivery time in the info record and not the material master.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi

    As you have multiple sources, you can have quota arrangement to decide the share opf business.

    You may incorporate the Planned delivery time to vendor or the Purchasing document. This becomes the vendor specific instead of maintianing in material master.

    Based of planned delivery time, the delivery date will be advanced for the vendor during MRP run. Due to this material availabilty at your end will become the same.

    hope this helps you

    Regards
