This is a very basic question i am sure to get an answer.
when i create a planned order in product view before a particular date (say 11th august) it changes availability date to 11th aug. that is irrespective of the date i am putting in (1,2,3...upto 11th august).
but when i try to do same after 11th, it gives me same date which i supply...example if i want planned order to be available on 11,12,13....etc it will give 11,12,13....etc.
what all can be the reason behind this particular behavior?
You are right as this is a simple question.
The reason is the lead time required to complete the planned order from START to FINISH.
Check the PPM or PDS -- Operation times from the first operation to the last operation
( should be approx 9-10 working days---- or---- 13-14 days including weekends)
When you enter today's date or any date before AUG 11, the system is proposing the first date when a planned order will be completed and available which is only after AUG11.
Try entering tmrw and you should be seeing the first date as AUG 12 and so on.
Just answered to your question, there is a lot more info on this area.**
