Is there a way to change the planned delivery time to workdays instead of
calendar days? If not, does anyone have a way (other than adding two days to all
planned delivery times) to start the planning process two days earlier when a
weekend is involved in planning.
There is the possibility for you to define the Planned Delivery Time
exclusive of weekend (Saturday and Sunday). What you have to do is:
1) Maintain the Calendar via the following path: SPRO ----> General Settings
-----> Maintain Calendar. This step will help define the appropriate calendar
that you would prefer to set.
2) Define the Plant parameters via the following path: SPRO ----> Enterprise
Structure -----> Definition --------> Logistics - General ------> Define, copy,
delete, check plant. Select the Plant that you would like to define the Plnd
Delivery Time and then, in the Factory Calendar, select the calendar that you
have defined in step 1.
If you have already have our plants assigned to a factory calendar(Z1). Is
it possible to get the planned delivery time to plan according to this calendar?
If so, how?
Once you have assigned the appropriate calendar to your plant location, then
you can start maintaining your material master data records with referecne to
this Plant and the Plnd Delivery
Time of these master data will be calculated based on the Calendar that you
have set for this particular plant.
My understanding was that Plannned Delivery time is always 'real' days,
where as GR time considers the factory calendar. Perhaps that is just the way we
have configured it?
The way we use it is that goods do travel over the weekend, but GRs are only
done according to the factory calendar - so it works well for us.
Delivery time is only calculated in calendar days, not working days.
