if customer request delivery date to their site on 30/11/09, and the production should be finished before 15/11/09 and the rest of date is for shipment. Which mean the production order or purchase order should based on 15/11/09. how can i do this in sales order? should i input the request delivery date on 15/11/09. if yes, how to record the date of 30/11/09. pls advice. thanks
maintain in-house production days in MRP2 view in the material master,
system will automatically calculate the material available date ,
then it will calculate the shipment based on the (goods issue date,loading date and transportation date )based on the settings made in delivery scheduling
finally it will give the delivery date
you do not have to change the requested delivery date. the purpose of this date is to indicate a preliminary customer requirement date. this date is relevant for MRP.
but the system looks at this requested date and calculates if your system can fulfill the requirement on this date; in the process, the system considers all lead times such as production (if internally procured), purchasing (if trading goods/externally procured) and others (delivery, picking, packing, etc.). if yes, this requested date is adopted as the schedule line (and earliest delivery creation) date. if no, then the system will propose a later date (also becoming the proposed confirmed schedule line date).
hope this helped you.
It can be solved by maintaining the Lead time in sale document type. You don't have to change date at sale oder, say you are creating sales order on 1/11/09 and you are maintaining lead time as 15 days, so that system will pick 15/11/09 as delivery date automatically. To record 30/11/09 date which is given by the customer use pricing date
