You can use Delivery Scheduling to ensure timely delivery of goods to the customer. The system checks those factors that influence the delivery time, such as picking time, packing time, loading time, and goods receipt processing time.


The Delivery Scheduling checkbox is applicable to sales order and stock transport orders (STO). If you do not use Delivery Scheduling, one of the following dates is used as the requirement date for a sales order.

  • Confirmed Delivery Date (EDATU)

  • Requested Delivery Date (VDATU)

  • Order Cancellation Date (FSH_CANDATE)

    Note Note

    If you choose Requested Delivery Date (VDATU) as a requirement date, the system considers the header level requested delivery date of a sales order

    End of the note.

For STOs, the following dates are used as the requirement date if Delivery Scheduling is not used.

  • Item Delivery Date (EINDT)

  • Committed Date (DAT01)

If you use Delivery Scheduling, the new requirement date is calculated as follows:

New Requirement Date = [Requirement Date] – [Number of Approximate Working Days Needed to Schedule a Delivery]

Here, the number of approximate working days are the days between the Confirmed Delivery Date (EDATU) and the Material Availability Date (MBDAT), that is,

Number of Working Days = Confirmed Delivery Date (EDATU) – Material Availability Date (MBDAT)

Note Note

Delivery Scheduling is not applicable when you use spread distribution logic as the allocation strategy.

End of the note.

See the example which explains how requirement dates are calculated if you do not use Delivery Scheduling option.
