Delivery Scheduling in SAP Sale Order

Delivery Scheduling in OTC [Order to Cash Process] is a Process of Determining Delivery Dates and Confirm Quantities for each Material/Line Item in a specific Sale Order.

SAP has the standard parameters to Determine it into the Sale Order…

A Pick Pack Time
B Loading Time
C Replenishment Lead Time [RLT]
D Transportation Lead Time [TLT]
E Transit Time

 

      1. Pick Pack Time:

– It is the time taken to pick the Material from Storage Location and to Pack it

– We maintain it in Shipping Point.

Path:

          SPRO–>IMG Activity–>Enterprise Structure–>Definition–>Logistics Execution–>Define                    Copy, Delete, Check Shipping Point–>Define Shipping Point

      2. Loading Time:

-It is the time taken to do the process of Loading the Goods in to the Vehicle

-We maintain it in Shipping Point.

      3. Replenishment Lead Time [R.L.T]:

– It is the Time taken to do the Process of manufacturing of Goods and make it ready for                        Dispatch.

– We maintain R.L.T in Material Master/ M.R.P View 3 tab

– In Delivery Scheduling, System Consider R.L.T only if the stock is not available

      4. Transportation Lead Time [T.L.T]:

– It is the Time taken to arrange the Vehicle for Dispatching the Goods to Customer

– We maintain T.L.T in Route

      5. Transit Time:

– It is the Time taken to deliver the Goods from Plant to Customer [Travelling Time]

  • We maintain Transit Time in Route
  • System will consider the working days in calendar while performing Delivery Scheduling
  • System considers the Calendar from from the below sources.

Scenario 9 of 16

 

NOTE: 1. When Backward Scheduling Success, system determines single Schedule line.

  1. Check Without RLT is Checked, so system should not consider the number of days for producing the stock from Material Master.

 

1.      Customer Requested Delivery Date

2.      Pick Pack – Loading Time

3.    Sale Order Creation Date

4.      Replenishment Lead Time [R.L.T]

It will be maintained in Material Master MRP3 View

5.      Availability Check Control

To consider the RLT Days in Delivery Schedule from Material Master, “Check without RLT” in Tcode-OVZ9 should be checked

6.       Backward Scheduling Partially Fail and Partially Success:

In this scenario the Customer Requested Delivery date met only for 100 Quantity, and ‘Check Without R.L.T’ is checked so system did not consider the Production plan, so it did not confirm the rest 50 quantity and Backward Scheduling Success for 100 qty and fails for 50 qty.

Scenario 11 of 16

NOTE: 1. When Backward Scheduling fails, system determines two Schedule lines.

  1. Check Without RLT is Checked, so system should not consider the number of days for producing the stock from Material Master.
  2. And as a result, NO Stock is available and RLT is checked, so system not confirmed the Quantity.

3.    Sale Order Creation Date

4.      Replenishment Lead Time [R.L.T]

It will be maintained in Material Master MRP3 View

5.      Availability Check Control

    To consider the RLT Days in Delivery Schedule from Material Master, “Check without RLT” in Tcode-OVZ9 should be checked

6.       Backward Delivery Scheduling Fails

In this scenario the Customer Requested Delivery date not met for 150 Quantity so Backward Scheduling Fails, and R.L.T is checked so system did not consider the Production plan, so it did not confirm the rest 150 quantity.

7.      Backward Delivery Scheduling Process

There is no process of Backward or Forward Scheduling, as there is no scope for waiting period to be considered for this specific order to be processed and delivered, it is the Customer Requirement.

 

Scenario 12 of 16

 

Note:  1. When Backward Scheduling fails, system determines two Schedule lines.

  1. If we have Transportation Lead Time [T.L.T] and Pick Pack Time [P/P time] and Stock is available then system considers T.L.T or P/P time whichever is higher.
  2. Instead of 08.10.2021 system proposes Customer Goods Receiving date as 09.10.2021, is because on 02.10.2021 the respective Calendar states the Holiday.

 

1.      Customer Requested Delivery Date

2.      Pick Pack – Loading Time

3.      Sale Order Creation Date

4.      Backward Delivery Scheduling Fails

In this scenario the Customer Requested Delivery date not met for 60 Quantity so Backward Scheduling Fails because system considers, Transportation Lead Time [7 days] + Loading Time [2 days] + Transit Time [5 days]

Note:  1. When Backward Scheduling Success, system determines single Schedule line.

  1. If we have Transportation Lead Time [T.L.T] and Pick Pack Time [P/P time] and Stock is available then system considers T.L.T or P/P time whichever is higher.
  2. Instead of 08.10.2021 system proposes Customer Goods Receiving date as 09.10.2021, is because on 02.10.2021 the respective Calendar states the Holiday.

1.      Customer Requested Delivery Date

2.      Pick Pack – Loading Time

3.      Sale Order Creation Date

4.      Backward Delivery Scheduling Success

In this scenario the Customer Requested Delivery date met for 60 Quantity so Backward Scheduling Success.

5.      Backward Delivery Scheduling Process

Delivery Creation date for 60 qty – 30.09.2021

P.G.I date – 08.10.2021

Customer Goods Receiving date – 13.10.2021

Scenario 14 of 16

 

 

Note:  1. When Backward Scheduling fails, system determines two Schedule lines.

  1. If we have Transportation Lead Time [T.L.T] and Pick Pack Time [P/P time] and Stock is available then system considers T.L.T or P/P time whichever is higher.

Ex: If we have,

Transportation Lead Time [T.L.T] – 7 days

Pick Pack Time [P/P Time]              – 3 days

Replenishment Lead Time [R.L.T] – 10 days and

Stock is Not Available then system considers R.L.T + P/P time or T.L.T whichever is higher.

 

1.      Customer Requested Delivery Date

2.      Pick Pack – Loading Time

3.      Sale Order Creation Date

4.      Replenishment Lead Time [R.L.T]

It will be maintained in Material Master MRP3 View

5.      Availability Check Control

To consider the RLT Days in Delivery Schedule from Material Master, “Check without RLT” in Tcode-OVZ9 should be Un checked

6.      Backward Delivery Scheduling Fails

7.      Backward Delivery Scheduling Process

Proposed SO creation date going beyond today’s date so Backward Scheduling Fails

9.      Forward Delivery Scheduling Process

And Delivery Creation date for 60 qty – 24.09.2021

P.G.I date – 03.10.2021

Customer Goods Receiving date  – 09.10.2021
