Regarding- Changing Requested Delivery Dates at Schedule Line Level

Hello All,

I have searched the forum and also read on some of the posts posted on availabilty check, customer requested delivery date, however as per customer requirement

If a sales order consists of two line items and for each one of them the customer requires two different delivery dates, then I put the requested delivery dates in the header which got copied to both to the line items, next when I went to the line item of one of the items the system allowed me to change the requested delivery date however the second line in the schedule line should now get calculated based on the changed delivery date given by the customer, however that is not changing, I tried to rerun availability check also but the system proposed delivery date does not change, could anyone let me know if this date does change and if yes how?

Kind Regards

Atul

    Ensure that once you changed the requested delivery date in the second line item, you hit the "Enter" key.  Without hitting this key, if you just check in schedule line, no changes will happen.

    • Noel,

      I had raised this issue with SAP, pasting the reply.

      this can be the case but it must not be.

      When the system caries out a forward scheduling then it can be also

      the case that the confirmed delivery date will not be postponed.


      Let us assume you have maintained a transit time of 3 days.

      The requested delivery date is 15.10.2012 and the end of the

      replenishment lead time is on 20.10.2012.

      The system first carries out a backward scheduling. The material

      availability date is determined on 12.10.2012. So this date is in the

      past. Therefore the system starts a forward scheduling from todays date

      and determines all other dates. So this means the material availability

      date is set to todays date. ATP check determines that today nothing is

      available and so the material availability date will be set to the end

      of the replenishment lead time. So MBDAT is on 20.10.2012 and the

      system carries out a forward scheduling from 20.10.2012 and determines

      the new delivery date on 23.10.2012 (3 days transit time).


      When you change the requested delivery date to 18.10.2012 then nothing

      will happen. The material availability date will be still on

      20.10.2012 and so the delivery date on 23.10.2012.


      When you keep this situation and you carry out a new atp check tomorrow

      then the situation will change. Tomorrow the end of RLT will be on

      21.10.2012. It is always shifted. So the material availability date

      is on 21.10.2012 and the delivery date will be on 24.10.2012.

      Kind Regards
