    hi

    u can maintain those settings in OVXD

    or

    you can maintain Pick/pack time & Loading time in

    SD>basic function>Delivery scheduling & transportation scheduling-->maintain durartion.

    To maintain transportation lead time & transit time it can be done in logistic execution>shipping>basic shipping function>routes> define routes-->define routes & stages.

    you can see the logic below:

    when you are creating sales order first system will go with backward scheduling if it is not reach the dates then system will go for forward scheduling.

    Backward Scheduling:

    Reqested delivery date - Transit time = Goods issue date

    Goods issue date - loading time = Loading date

    Loading date - Transportation lead time or pick/pack time = material availability date.

    In case Material availability date fall beyond requested date system will perform forward scheduling

    Forward Scheduling:

    Loading date = Material availabilty date + pick/pack time

    Goods issue date = Loading date + Loading time

    Requested delivery date = Goods issue date + Transit time

    Delievry scheduling will be started only from the material availability date i.e., system will first determine the material availability date and then do scheduling. By default Standard SAP system does Backward Scheduling in case material availability falls beyond the required delivery date system will do forward schedluing

    Dear Harvinder,

    These data will be based on the settings in the shipping point detail screen.

    Please go to OVXD transaction select your shipping point then go in to the details here you can find the settings related to the

    Determine Load. Time C Default from shipping point

    Loading Time w.Days 1.00

    Det.Pick/Pack Time C Default from shipping point

    Pick/pack time wrkdys 1.00

    Rounding Work Days

    I hope it will help you,

    Regards,

    Dear Harvinder

    I hope ,you need to understand the Shipment scheduling, beacuse those dates are calculated from this.

    System as a principle start with "Backward Scheduling" first.

    In Backward Scheduling , system takes into consideration the customer's "Requested Delivery date" and calculates backward taking all lead times (like Transit time, Loading time,Transportation lead time,Pick/pack time) into consideartion and calculates the "Tranportation planning date" and "Material availablity date".

    If both these dates are after the Order date and the material is also available on the material available date , then only the customer's requested delivery date can be confirmed.

    If ,even one of these dates is earlier than the order date OR the material is not available on the material availability date then the requested delivery date can not be confirmed and system immediately starts with Forward scheduling.

    In Forward Scheduling , system takes into consideration the "New material availability date"and calculates forward by adding those lead times and gives a "Confirm delivery date".

    In the system , you will get the two schedule line

    1. First schedule line corrosponds to the Requested delivery date and has no confirm quantiy/zero quantity.

    2. Second schedule line corrosponds to the Confirm delivery date with confirm quantity.
