Functionality of the factory calendar in Purchasing

Hello all.

I would like to understand how the factory calendar works within purchasing. The current factory setting in our plant is US which is Monday thru Friday (5 Days) yet we are still able to create purchase orders for a Saturday delivery.

1) Is there a different calendar that Purchasing uses?
2) Can this be done by using the planning calendar field in MRP 2 view?

The goal is to prevent Buyers from placing Purchase Orders with a weekend delivery date.
Thank you in advance!

The factory calendar is used for scheduling purposes including lead-times, GR processing time, etc. When a user enters a non-working day as a delivery date they get a warning and can choose to ignore it or not. The system will schedule on working days.

Thanks so much for the info, Ken! 🙂

And you do not accidentally know this can be done by using the planning calendar field in MRP 2 view?
