I have a question with regard to the delivery date calculation of a PO.
What I'd like to have is the following: when running MRP, the system needs to propose a purchase requisition that takes into account two things:
1. A safety margin
2. The average delivery time to have a certain material delivered
As far as I can see in the material master, there are the goods receipt processing time and planned delivery time. The idea is to have the GR processing time as the safety margin and the average delivery time in the planned delivery time field. But it turns out that this is not really working. In fact, the system does not even look at the planned delivery time at the moment.
Am I overlooking some settings / basic functionality of SAP?
Your soonest input is much appreciated!
