    That indicates that your system has done "Forward scheduling".

    This is the earliest possible date on which goods can reach the Customer.

    Taking the New material available date , system has calculate this confirm delivery date through delivery scheduling.

    Required delivery date is the desired date by the customer to receive the goods. I may or may not be able to meet this date keeping my different lead time in mind like, Transit time, Loading time, Pick/pack time, Transportation planning time.

    So, system first goes for Backward scheduling and test whether the Required delivery date can be kept or not.

    If it is not possible to meet this date then system immediately goes for Forward scheduling and gives a new confirm delivery date.

    That is what has happened in your case.

    Check in your order document The RLT: Replinishment Lead time what you have specified.

    Make No entry there.

    Next Check the MMR there in the MRP3 screen see whether you have given any lead time for the procurements etc.

    Now also check your factory calender. since Sunday the deliveries cannot happen in that case the system will propose the Later Date.

    Also along with this is there any other thing activated such as route determinationand the Packing and transportation.

    Then the delivery creation schedule will also depend on the same.
