How to configure shipment off of the produce in alt plant procurement type.

Hello,

We have a situation that we need help with. We have one company code and two plants. Plant A is on the west coast and plant b is on the east coast.

Plant A is the planning plant and Plant B is the producing plant. I set up the special procurement keys to produce in alt plant (80) and I have it correctly generating a planned order in plant A and then a production order in Plant B when there is demand from the sales order. However I am not quite sure what to do after the production order.

How does Plant B know that it needs to ship to Plant A? What is the vbest practice for creating a delivery and shipment as these are full truckloads?

Also as it turns out Plant B only ships these plant to plant transfers on Thursdays. How do I calculate this into the ATP on the sales order to give me an accurate date on the schedule line?

Thank you in advance,

Brynn

    For the requirement you specify, you will have to use a special procurement key which allows STO (Stock Transport Order), where-in a STO is raised from Plant A to Plant B. With reference to this STO you can create an outbound delivery & ship the part from plant B to A. Take help from your MM consultant to map this flow.

    As regards to the delivery done only on thursdays, refer to SAP help for time phased planning with delivery cycle (in CBP section). Also search this forum you should find plenty of threads on this topic in this forum. Just to get you going, you will need to define a planning calendar & assign it in MRP view of the material master.

    I suggest you do the above in your sandbox & revert if you face any specific issue.

    Dear

    How does Plant B know that it needs to ship to Plant A?

    When in Customization you assign Special Proc U & stock transfer Plant B in MRP run Stock transfer Pur. req get generate with required delivery date. Convert this PR to PO which will be your STO. Deliver you material to plant A as per the required date.

    Also as it turns out Plant B only ships these plant to plant transfers on Thursdays. How do I calculate this into the ATP

    In Plant A you can PPC planning calendar (MRP2) along with Planning cycle (MRP1). As plant B is acting like Vendor to Plant A, you create Planning calenadar with Deliver day Thursday. If you selected the "time-phased planning" MRP type, the planning calendar (MRP 2) that you specify here defines the delivery cycle. This specifies the days on which the vendor delivers the material. You can enter the planning cycle in addition to the delivery cycle.

    Hope this will help you to some extent.
