    Hi Pranay,

    Calenders are basically used to define the no. of working days for a Sales org/plant/shipping point and even the customer.

    In order to know out of 365 days in a year which days are working which days have been declared a public holiday we will have to define the calenders.

    SAP has given the flexibility to define various calenders having different public holidays list. Each of these can be assigned to different Organizational units like Plant, shipping point and Sales organization. Calenders can also be defined and assigned to the customer

    Thanks and Regards,

    J Nagesh

    hi

    Factory calendar specify the work days at the customer's site .

    These calendars are used to determine when a delivery must take place in order for it to reach the customer's site on a work day when it can be received.

    Also, factory calendar is used in consolidated invoicing. That is, if we specify that only one day a week is a working day for our customer ,the billing documents are only to be created for that one day each week, causing delivery documents to be consolidated into one billing document.

    Factory Calendar decides the holidays for the plant.

    Sales order flow to production order and based on the factory calendar material availability will be confirmed to the customer.

    Production planning/Scheduling will happen based on Factory Calendar

    Hii

    Pranay

    sales organisation factory calendar is used for working days/holidays... etc of the sales organisation , if you want to assign the factory calendar to the sales organisation it means you are telling that the working days/holidays etc. related to that sales organisation is as follows. when you want to create a sales order with that sales organisation and tomorrow is a delivery date but as per the factory calendar of sales organisation tomorrow will be holiday then sales organisation calender comes to the picture.

    Regards

    Hi Pranay,

    It is very simple like how we work six days or five days in a week.

    Regards,

    A simple example would be .

    when a sales order is created, it determines, the shipping point and then checks for the calendar associated and performs the ATP, if the Requested delivery date falls on a Sunday (after backward or forward scheduling) which happens to be a holiday in Shipping point calendar , then it would propose the next working day,

    Similarly where ever dates are determined, the factory calendar plays a role to determine the dates.

    If this helps you, hit points.
