Hi

With release documentation (in the standard system, document type LPA)

The schedule lines in the system have internal character. This means that you can change them in any way you wish. The schedule lines stored in the system are not transmitted to the vendor until you explicitly create a scheduling agreement release (which may take one of two forms: a forecast delivery schedule or a JIT delivery schedule).

The release documentation allows you to display the releases transmitted to a vendor over a certain period in order to establish exactly when you transmitted which information to the vendor.

Without release documentation (in the standard system, document type LP)

The schedule lines immediately have official character, i.e. they are immediately transmitted to the vendor the moment you save them (transmission time-spot 4 for messages). There is no release documentation in this case.

LU -St. Trnsp. Sch. Agmt is used for Stock transport cheduling agreements , it is similar to that of LP, but this document type allows only Stock transport ordering using item category U

Thanks & Regards

Hi,

Difference between different types of scheduling agreements are

LPA: Scheduling agreement with Release document: whenever you create & save this agreement they are officially transmitted to the vendor. Release document will be available to check the details.

LP: Scheduling agreement without Release document: Whenever you create & save this agreement they are officially transmitted to the vendor. Release document will not be available.

LU: This type of agreement is used incase of stock transport scheduling between two plants.
