Use

The delivery completed indicator tells you whether additional deliveries are to be expected for a purchase order. If the delivery completed indicator is set, the system sets open purchase order quantities to zero even if purchase order quantities have only partially been delivered. The item or stock keeping unit is then considered delivery completed.

In the AFS system you have the following options for setting the delivery completed indicator:

Note

You can set the delivery completed indicator in the goods receipt and in the purchase order. The system updates a delivery completed indicator that has been set in the goods receipt in the purchase order. You can manually set the delivery completed indicator in the purchase order. This way you can, for example, close purchase order quantities that have been open for a long time and for which you no longer expect a delivery, without re-creating a goods receipt.

Features

To enter a logic for the automatic setting of the delivery completed indicator in the goods receipt, choose in Customizing AFS ® Materials Management ® Global materials management settings. Here you can specify one of the following strategies in the group box Delivery complete indicator:

Example

If you select the radio button PO item tolerance, the system would set the delivery completed indicator such in the following example:

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text

For the item Womenís T-Shirt the DCI-Id would be set because the delivered quantity of 90 pieces is within the underdelivery tolerance of 10 percent. Since the DCI-Id is set at item level, the delivery completed indicators for the SKUs Yell/L and Blue/M would also be set, despite the fact that the delivered quantity of 45 pieces exceeds the tolerance of 5 percent.

For the item Menís T-Shirt the DCI-Id would not be set because the delivered quantity of 90 pieces is not within the underdelivery tolerance of 5 percent. The delivery completed indicator for both SKUs Blck/L and Blue/XL would be set.

Example

If you select the radio button DCI for all SKUs, the system would set the delivery completed indicator in the example below as follows:

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text

Although the delivered quantity of the material Womenís T-Shirt is within the underdelivery tolerance, the delivery completed indicator would not be set at item level because the delivery completed indicator for both SKUs Yell/L and Blue/M could not be set.

The delivery completed indicators for the SKUs Blck/L and Blue/XL would be set for the item Menís T-Shirt. As a result, the DCI-Id would also be set at item level, although the delivered quantity of 90 pieces is not within the underdelivery tolerance.
