Whether for a production/process order has been delivered with partial/full qty can be identified by DLV status. If the delivery happens partially then the PDLV will be activated.
It is not always that when the total order qty is confirmed then only the DLV will be activated. This depends on under delivery and over delivery tolerance also. As well it depends on CNF status.
Created one production order with qty 11 nos. There is no delivery tolerance.
Now confirmed 5 nos in the order and it is a partial confirmation.
The status of the order is PCNF and PDLV.
Now we are going for final confirmation.
The order status is DLV and the indicator is set
So the DLV status will be updated if the header status is CNF. Might be confirmed qty is not same with the order qty (less than the ord qty).
Created another order where delivery tolerance is 0.
Confirmed entire qty (i.e. 4 nos) with partial confirmation.
Though the confirmation is PCNF (for partial confirmation) as all the qty got delivered equal to the order qty, system makes it DLV. But PCNF stays because you can confirm more component. This option is given by SAP to cope up with scrap.
Created another order with 8 qty and under delivery tolerance as 50%.
Now confirmed 4 nos and with partial confirmation.
Now the order status is DLV. This is because system considers the under delivery tolerance and make DLV though the confirmation is PCNF (as total qty is 8 and under delivery is 50%. So DLV will set at 50% of 8 =4 nos) .
Created another order with over delivery tolerance as 50%.
Now confirming 8 nos with partial confirmation. Here system sets the status as DLV. As over delivery indicator is there, more delivery is allowed.
Hope this will clear when and with what situation DLV indicator will be set. Seen some thread regarding DLV indicator set and tried to explain in this document.
Will wait for any comment/suggestion .
