    Hi,

    In situations where orders have long lead times, this scheduling procedure can result in components being provided much earlier than they are actually needed in the production process. To avoid this situation, the dependent requirements date of the subordinate component can be rescheduled by the follow-up time. With the follow-up time the dependent requirements date of the components is displaced from the order start date further into the future.

    The lead-time offset (in workdays) for the component in relation to the start date for production of the superior assembly. This value is not included in lead-time scheduling for a task list.

    Displacing the Dependent Requirements Date in the Future

    If you have entered a positive value in the bill of material, the dependent requirements date of the component is displaced in the future, starting from the order start date of the assemblyu2019s planned order.

    Order start date of the assembly: 11.30.1999

    Lead-time offset: 2+

    Dependent requirements date of the component: 12.02.1999

    Bringing Forward the Dependent Requirements Date

    If you have entered a negative value, the dependent requirements date will be brought forward.

    Order start date of the assembly: 11.30.1999

    Lead-time offset: 2-

    Dependent requirements date of the component: 11.28.1999

      Hi Alok,

      is the lead-time offset in BOM being used in APO as well? if yes, how is it mapped in APO?

      is the lead-time offset in BOM may be seen in the PDS or other fields in APO?

      thanks in advance for your help!

      Regards,

      KP
