    Hi,

    there are different types of scheduling agreements in SD:

    scheduling agreements without delivery schedules (like DS, or LP in German). This kind of scheduling agreements is similar to the standard order, but has a target quantity and multiple schedule lines to each item, which should be created manually.

    scheduling agreements with delivery schedules, here there are:

    a) 'normal' scheduling agreements with delivery schedules (like LZ in the standard), the flow here: scheduling agreement => delivery

    b) scheduling agreements with delivery orders (like LZM in the standard), the flow here: scheduling agreement LZM => delivery order TAM (is the order) => delivery

    c) scheduling agreements with external agent service (like LK in the standard), the flow here: scheduling agreement LK => delivery to the consigment storage location => external agent delivery order ED (is the order) => delivery

    d) scheduling agreements for self-billing process (like LZS in the standard), they are similar to LZ, but can be invoiced via self-billing IDOC only.

    e) in Automotive system there are also specual scheduling agreements for JIT process.

    All scheduling agreements can be created in transaction VA31, changed in VA32, displayed in VA33.

    For sceduling agreement with delivery schedules you can use both forecast and JIT (Just-in-Time) delivery schedules. And you can indicate "MRP for DS type" (VBAK-ABDIS) from which schedule and when the requirements and deliveries could be created.

    The first steps in VA31: give the sales area and scheduling agreement type, ENTER, give the sold-to party, PO number, material number, ENTER. Save.

    The scheduling agreement is created.

    To create the forecast schedule: VA32, mark the item, press the button "Forecast DS" below and then you can indicate the delivery schedule number, delivery schedule date and create the schedule lines. Save.

    Similarly you can create the JIt schedule, but then you have to indicate JIT horizon, until the schedule is valid.

    Deliveries can be created by a normal way.

    If you create a new delivery schedule, you have to use the buttons "New DS w/o proposal" or "New DS with proposal". lease take into account that creation of a new delivery schedule means that the old delivery schedule will be completely overwritten.

    Thanks,

    Subbz..

    Scheduling Agreement is one of the main outline agreements and is represented by order type DS in the standard system.Scheduling agreement is an order type and it contains a schedule line, a fixed delivery date and quantity.

    When the delivery is due , delivery is created with reference to the scheduling agreement.

    So,from DS > LF > F2.

    If customer request you can go for periodic invoice also, in Scheduling agreement.
