Availability date for primary receipts

Dear SAP specialists !

I faced an issue regarding the availability date for primary receipts.

I expect the following:

supply, came from the Plant to DC should be available for the secondary distribution only on the second day from its delivery date to DC,

i.e. inbound product pieces on DC always have to stay at current location and at the same time consuming the Storage Capacity of the DC storage resource in the current bucket and only on the second day it should be available for the secondary distribution to CUs.

I tried to use GR, GI time in the transportation lane / product-location master data, but it didn’t work as I expected. It only adds Goods receipt/issue time to transportation lane duration.

Please, could you help us with this issue? Does the system possess such a functionality?

System: APO

Best regards,

Kirill Nepomnyashchiy

    create a virtual storage location in the first location whioch technically belongs to the DC and you can move the product from plant to storage location with lead time of 1 day and storage location to DC with a lead time of 1 day.

      Dear Srinivas.

      Actually the model, proposed by Harish AN, won't be working by the reason of that the product is required to be stored at DC at least one day for the Storage Capacity to be consumed. In the current model it won't be stored at virtual DC, because it will be immediately transferred to the real DC for Demand fulfillment.

      As for the Capacity Consumption using "GR/GI" Tab for the "Consumption of Storage Resource Capacity per Unit of Material" it had been already customized. The main issue is that the product came from source destination, mustn't be available for the Sales Orders in current bucket. It has to be available at least in the further ones.

      Thank you in advance,

    Not sure there are standard ways of dealing with staging time if thats what you are looking at. Am not sure if you are talking this in context of PPDS or SNP. If it is the latter, I guess you should be able to write a custom heuristic to deal with scheduling using staging time so that availability dates appropriately show up.

    In case of the latter, am not sure if there is a direct way of handling staging time. You may want to explore with the GR/GI times after setting up Handling resources for the location. Alternatively you may have to define transportation duration that contains travel and staging time.
