This qst might have been answered in other posts aswell, however I didnt find the basic information I am looking for:
I am bit confused, about when is the Planned Delivery time is used vs Duration in Means of Transport in Transporation lane.
I have 48 hrs in TL from Loc A to Loc B TL. and in it also shows 7 days in PDT in the TL. I thought only means of Transport time is used by Heuristic to plan for Distribution Req.
But here SNP Heuristic is suggesting 7 days of transport time.?
Also when I changed the PDT in material master data (MAT1 -> Procurement Tab) its not changed in TL.
Can you please tell, when is PDT used vs When is Means of Transport Time is used. Also where is this PDT of 7 days coming from ??
Thanks a lot in advance
The answer to your question is not simple. Scheduling depends upon several factors.
Read that note, and all the attached notes.
To be honest I am lost on this now!!
To understand the basic thing, I tried the below simple scenario:
1. No Transportation time in TL, only PDT of 5 days (changed in MAT1). but there is no change in the order start date.
2. However, when there is no PDT, but only transportation time, the Start date is offset
3. Also, if I change the planned delivery time in MM02 in R3 and CIF, it dosent change in APO (in SCC_TL1) TL Screen!
Can you help me understand the behaviour of system here please
Thanks in advance
