I've checked SAP notes and forums but no answers to this one....hope you can help.
I have 2 plants, in separate company codes. One orders from the other using a full inter-company process.
The issue is, when i raise a PO the delivery date (shipping tab) is updated correctly, using the agreed lead time (planned delivery days)
However, the Delivery Creation Date is usually updated with 'todays' date. It's as though the planned delivery days on the material master or PIR is being interpreted as a transit time between the plants.
This has 2 undesirable effects:
1. The supplying plant has no notice, requirement date is NOW
2. Delivery creation batch jobs create deliveries which aren't really due yet
I really need the Delivery creation date to be a true material availability date ie the date the goods are required to be available in the supplying plant. For us this would be 3 days (transit time between plants) before the delivery date.
Any help greatly appreciated.
