Information in this document applies to any platform.
The sales order preference profiles allow for planning to back schedule requirements based on transit days. Preference Profiles are used to override default information for specific sales order detail lines based on specific customer/customer group and item/item group combinations.
The Delivery Date, or Lead Time Transit Days, preference enables the automatic calculation of the Promised Delivery Date (RSDJ), Promised Ship Date (PPDJ), and/or Pick Date (PDDJ) on the sales order detail line.
For MRP planning, this means that the supply orders based on these sales orders will be received or completed in time to meet the sales order pick dates (PDDJ), independent of the sales Requested Date (DRQJ). Sales Forecast, on the other hand, will only use the Sales Requested Date (DRQJ), regardless of any preference profile settings. R3465 and R34650 will use the request date, with no option to use the preference dates.
The supply order for a Sales Order and a Forecast for the same request date and same quantity would have different dates depending on whether the replenishment is driven by the sales or by the forecast.
For example, one item with no preference setup for Lead Time Transit Days would not back schedule any differently for a forecast or sales order for the same date and quantity. Another item with a 40 day Transit Lead Time would back schedule a sales order very differently from a forecast.
This is inconsistent.
This request is for a customer specific forecast record to use the same preference profile logic as currently used for a sales order so that the supply order will schedule according to the calculated pick (PDDJ) date, from the forecast Requested (DRQJ) Date, in the same manner as a sales order PDDJ is calculated from the sales DRQJ.
