GR Processing time at stock transfer orders

Hi all,

I've a question about the GR processing time at stock transfer. I've the following problem.

In the MRP2 view the GR processing time is 10 days (because of inspection time). When I release a process order with end date 10 sept 2008 the product will be available at 20 sept. This is all correct.

But when i do a stock transfer via a stock transfer order there are also 10 days taken into account. This should be just one day. Is there a possibility to default the gr processing time for stock transfer order to 1 day. Or is there another way to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

Maarten

    Hi Maarten,

    you could try reducing the GR processing time to 1 day and adding a float after production of 9 days in your scheduling margin key.

    The key is also entered on the MRP 2 view, customizing of the key is in the IMG > Production > Material Requirements Planning > Planning > Scheduling and Capacity Parameters > Define Floats (Scheduling Margin Key)

    For testing you can certainly take any key that contains a float after production.

    Hi Kay,

    I tested it, but the floating point days are not taken into account. Besides that the inspection duration is dependend on the product. That would mean that i have to define a lot of different sched margins keys.

      Hi Maarten,

      then you could add another operation for the inspection to the routing of each product, but then this would be a different QM setup and it may also affect your availability check, because without the operation, the part is a long time visible in QI stock, whereas with the operation it is not yet stock but only WIP.

    why do you need 10 days GR processing time for an external procurement and only 1 day GR processing time for internal procurement?

    What activities do your 10 days cover that are not needed for internal procurement.

    In general the material master value for GR processing time is valid for any procurement, as the material cannot know if it will be procured internally or externally .
