Delivery date:- the date on which cust. receives goods.
Requested delivery date:- the date on which cust. wishes to
have his goods.
confirmed delivery date:- the date on which the arrival of
goods can be confirmed.
Now, for backward scheduling the cust. requested delivery
date is used to calculate the material availability date
and transportation lead time. the delivery must be created
on the earliest of the two dates.
If both dates are after the order date and material is
availble on the material availblity date, the cust.
requested delivery date can be confirmed .
If both dates are before the order date , confirmation of
the requested delivery date can not take place. Therefore,
the system attempts to determine the next eraliest possible
delivery date through forward scheduling.
It is determined by the customisation u give in ur order
type for eg: if proposed delivery date is ticked in ur order
type nad lead time is 7 days , then ur requested delivery
date is current date + 7 wking days.. correct me if im wrong..
Delivery Date is determined by Backward Scheduling. If the
date determined so, cannot accomdate the lead time,
transport arrangment time, etc. Forward scheduling takes
place and new delivery date is determined
i accept the above scenario but it doesnt stick to the
question, cos delievery scheduling is done for the req del
date in case of backward scheduling, if it fails to meet the
reqd delvy date or to say if the material is not available
on the date to full fill the req del date, then forward
scheduling date is done to findout the confirmed dely dte
