Transit Time

Hi,

A sales order is created on 06/10/2010 and the requested delivery date was entered as 18/10/2010. The sales order has 3 line items and all were confirmed for 18/10/2010. The route has a 1 day lead time. If I go to schedule line and view the shipping page for all 3 items, the delivery date is shown correclty as 18/10/2010. But rest all dates (Goods issue date, Loading date, Material avail.date and Transportation Plan. Date) is showing as 16/10/2010. Why there is a difference of 2 days b/w the GI date and Delivery date when the route has a lead time of only 1 day? The pick/pack, loading etc would have been already considered while determining the GI date itself wright? Is there any other time factor other than the transit time to determine the delivery date?

Regards,

Raghav

    Hi,

    Please check the holiday in your factory calender, in that case it may have taken the another one day. so lead time=1 day, holiday=1 day, so in total 2 days. So the delivery and loading has the difference.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    17/10/2010 is Sunday. Do you ship on Sunday ? If you would like to have goods available on MOnday and you have 1 day transit time, then they would need to leave your DC on Sunday.

    Please verify:

    1) shipping point definition and specifically factory calendar inside shipping point.

    2) route definition - there is possibility to enter factory calendar inside the route.

    Change the calendar to something having 7 working days and retest.

    Best regards

      Hi,

      Thanks for the reply. I have already checked those things. For a similar set of data in the system (where the RDD is a monday)other sales orders have only 1 day difference b/w the GI date and the delivery date.

      Regards,
