    Hi..

    Delivery Scheduling and Transportation Scheduling

    Shipping activities and transportation can be scheduled automatically in sales documents.

    Picking/packing and loading, transportation scheduling and transportation can be planned and optimized on the basis of the dates determined.

    There are two different types of scheduling:

    Delivery scheduling

    The SAP System takes into account the pick/pack time and loading time for a transaction.

    You define the type of delivery scheduling for each shipping point.

    Transportation scheduling

    The SAP System takes into account the transit time and the transportation scheduling time for a transaction.

    You define the type of transportation scheduling on the basis of the route (see sections "Route definition" and "Route determination").

    You define for each sales document type whether delivery scheduling and/or transportation scheduling should be carried out.

    For the dates to be determined automatically on the basis of the requested delivery for an order item, you must define both the times and what influences the determination of the date.

    You need to carry out the following:

    Define for each sales document type whether scheduling is to be carried out and, if so, which type.

    Define the indicators for scheduling for each shipping point.

    Define:

    Pick/pack times

    Please fallow below steps:

    SPRO > Logistic Execution > Shipping > Basic Shipping Functions > Scheduling > Delivery Scheduling and Transportation Scheduling

    STEP 1: Define Scheduling by Sales Document type

    Here have to assign your Sales Document type to your Del and Transportation Scheduling if the system what to carry the Scdheduling Automatically.

    STEP 2: Define Scheduling by Shipping Point

    Here if you want to carry Determine Loading time and Determine Pick/Pack time Just select the "C"- Default for Shipping Point and give respective Hours/Days here.

    STEP 3: Maintain Working Hours

    Here can maintain shift like ( Morning, Afternoon Shifts etc., with respective Start and Finish time.

    STEP 4:

    Here we can difine duration for Shipping point,Routes, Pick/Pack time and Loading time

    Also see link for more clarification-http://help.sap.com/saphelp_470/helpdata/en/dd/5607e7545a11d1a7020000e829fd11/frameset.htm

    Hi Mohammed...

    Just to have a bit more view on delivery scheduling.. THere are three types of delivery scheduling

    1.Backward Scheduling

    2.Forward Scheduling

    3.Precise Scheduling

    Backward scheduling is the calculation of deadline dates: the arrival time at the customer site is calculated as the earliest possible goods receipt time at the customers unloading point on the requested delivery date. All four of the delivery and transportation scheduling lead times are subtracted from the customeru2019s requested delivery date to determine if this date can be met.

    The transit time, loading time, and pick/pack time are subtracted from the customeru2019s requested delivery date to calculate the required material availability date.

    The system calculates backward scheduling as follows:

    Requested delivery date minus transit time = Goods issue date

    Goods issue date minus loading time = Loading date

    Loading date minus transportation lead time = Transportation scheduling date

    Loading date minus pick/pack time = Material availability date

    By default, the system will calculate delivery dates the closest day, taking into consideration the working days of the shipping point and a rounding profile. In this case the system assumes a 24 hour work day and lead times can be entered in days up to 2 decimal points. This is referred to as daily scheduling.

    Precise scheduling calculated down to the day, hour and minute is supported. This allows the scheduling of a delivery within a single day. It is activated by maintaining the working hours for a particular shipping point.

    Backward scheduling is always carried out first. If the material availability date or transportation scheduling date is calculated to be in the past, the system must then use forward scheduling.

    Forward scheduling is also done if no product is available on the material availability date calculated by backward scheduling. The system does an availability check to determine the first possible date when product will be available. This new material availability date forms the starting point for scheduling the remaining activities. The loading time, pick/pack time, transit time, and transportation lead time are added to the new material availability date to calculate the confirmed delivery date.

    Hopes this will give you some basic Ideas...

    Thanks,

    Safeer Rahman
