Future Delivery Date / Current ATP

Post by Brahio » Tue Aug 04, 2015 2:50 pm

Hi -
Checking if anyone has this issue and the standard way to handle it.

Orders are created and typically deliveries are created based on what is available today which is fine. Our business has been having specific customers create deliveries with future requested delivery date (15 days in advance) due to the processing time it takes these specific customers (loading, preparing etc). This of course puts havoc on ATP since it they will continually pull stock that is not confirmed to them (confirmed for a future PO due in next week)...deplete the stock of current orders.

What is the standard way to allow them to create a delivery due well into the future, BUT ONLY create the delivery quantities that are available today? That is, the delivery due will continue to sweep each day as quantities become available for the large shipment scheduled in the future.

You need to configure delivery scheduling with pick/pack/load times.
Good luck!
