Prioritising orders in VL10B

Dear colleagues,

My client uses background job VL10B in order to create deliveries for stock transport orders. Sometimes, the available stock cannot cover all the outstanding orders, so the job creates deliveries only for some orders.

We can't understand the logic how SAP picks the orders to create the deliveries for - it seems to be random. What my client wants is FIFO based on the requested delivery date.

Have you ever been confronted with such question? Do you know if this is possible to set up?

TIA

Raf

    Hi,

    The logic behind the delivery creation for order is purely based on the confirmed delivery dates which are store in the delivery due index file. If yo uwant delivery creation on FIFO basis please create a variant in SHD0 in this regard for VL10B. Thanking you

    • Ah! Ok.

      No, we don't select by the planned delivery date. We do use the delivery creation date and it would be fine for us if the system prioritised the orders with earlier "delivery creation date", since it is always one day before the planned delivery date - for all orders.

      But unfortunately it doesn't. We will now do a full scale test with many orders, after having fixed the delivery priority for all the customers and also changed to package type 2. We have tested with this before, but now became unsure - maybe there were other disturbing factors at the same time when we ran the previous tests. So now it is time for a "clean" massive test.
