Material Staging date and Committed Date

Deal all,

At the outset,Wish you a very happy new year.

As per my understanding the material staging date should always be equal to Committed date in the Delivery schedule of the PO. Also the pick date in the delivery would be the staging date of the PO.

In which scenario, the staging date could differ to the committed date? What may be the reasons to have different staging and committed date in PO?

Appreciate your speedy responce.

it would not make much sense to have 2 fields for staging date and committed date if they should always be equal.

The F1 help of each field describes it already a little bit more.

Staging date is the date by which sufficient quantities of the item must be available for picking to begin.

Dependend on the volume that must be picked and staged it can take days to have everything in the staging area so that it can be delivered from there.

In the customizing of shipping point you can enter days/hours needed for picking and packing.
