Receipt on Friday for weekend's forecast



Our forecast in demand planning is on all 7 days of a week. Shipping calendar at Location level is open for all 7 days

so we can see the forecast in SNP for 7 days.

Receiving calendar is open for only 5 days (closed on Saturday and Sunday)

When we run SNP heuristics, with daily lot size system creates receipt on each day to fulfill demand except for Saturday and Sunday’s demand.

As receiving calendar is closed on Sat/Sun, system shows shortages on these 2 days and creates a combine receipt on Monday (for Sat, Sun and Monday demand). Business requirement is system should pull the demand in and create the receipt on Friday (for Sat and Sun forecast) instead of Monday.

They don’t want to open receiving calendar for weekend.

Please suggest if you have similar scenario or came across such requirement.
