Basic Dates and Production Dates in Planned Orders



Can anyone tell me why Basic Dates and Production Dates are different in Planned Orders. I am using Make to Stock (strategy 10) with backward scheduling and a float of 1 day after production.

I have entered PIR for 1st December and have executed MRP on it. Now in the planned order Header tab the system shows Order Finish Date as 1.12.2011 in Basic Dates however its showing 02.12.2011 in Production Dates. Why is there a difference of 1 day? Semi Finished and ROH materials are in stock, capacity is available on work centers and I have no other orders planned in the system for the month of December.

We are using ECC 6.0 EHP 5 and I have also noticed that Production Dates in Planned Orders used to be blank in EHP 4.

Any help would be highly appreciated.
