We have an urgent need in implementing master planning in a retail industry.
There is a vendor that its delivery date is just on Tuesdays and the lead time is two days. So, the order date should be on Sundays and delivery date on Tuesdays on a weekly basis.
We have defined a calendar and assigned to a Vendor. In this calendar:1. If Sundays and Tuesdays are Open day. In some situations, and order is placed on Tuesday and the delivery date is on Sunday that is not what we expected.
2. If we set only the Tuesdays as an open day, the orders are also placed on Tuesdays!
Your help is greatly appreciated.#AX2012 #Functional
I have attached to screenshots. I tested both of them and each has its deficiencies.
1. Open days= Tuesdays: order date and delivery date are set only on Tuesdays, but we want to order on Sundays and have delivery on Tuesdays.
2. Open days= Sundays & Tuesdays: in some situations order date is on Tuesday and delivery date is on Sunday (next week) that is not expected.
Another point is that "closed for pickup" check box does not have impact on order date and delivery dates of Purchase Orders. In summery, order dates should be fixed to Sundays and delivery dates should be fixed to Tuesdays.
I truly appreciate your help.
There is unfortunately no workaround for this. The Vendor calendar is used to calculate scheduling from date, the scheduling to date and the order date.
