Follow these steps

Automatic creation of a purchase delivery schedule

  1. Create a demand for the delivery schedule item by entering the safety stock in 'Item. Connect Warehouse' (MMS002) or by creating a customer order in 'Customer Order. Open' (OIS100).

  2. Start 'Material Plan. Open' (MMS080).

  3. On the B panel, enter the warehouse and item number.

  4. Select option F18 = MRP Calculation.

    A planned purchase order is created.

  5. Start 'Purchase Delivery Schedule. Open' (PPS210).

  6. On the B panel, enter the warehouse for sorting order 1. Press Enter.

    A delivery schedule is automatically created and connected to a purchase order, with status 15.

Manual creation of a purchase delivery schedule

  1. Start 'Purchase Delivery Schedule. Open' (PPS210).

    Note: It is not possible to manually create a delivery schedule via PPS200.
  2. Press F13 to open the P panel and set the opening panel to A. Press Enter.

  3. On the A panel, enter the warehouse, item number, supplier number, order type, and agreement number. Select New.

  4. On the E panel, enter the proposed quantity below the time axis.

    • The date displayed in the delivery schedule is controlled from the parameters on panel P of 'Delivery Schedule. Open' (PPS210/P). The displayed day could be Monday (=1), Tuesday (=2), Wednesday (=3), Thursday (=4) or Friday (=5).
    • The character in front of the date indicates if the date lies in the firm (*) or in the preliminary (-) range.
    • If the line is open, the order quantity can be re-planned from here.
    • If changes are made, this will directly affect the purchase order or the connected planned purchase order.
    • If more than one order lies in the period, the line will be closed.
    • If these orders have to be re-planned this must be done from the purchase order or the planned purchase order.
  5. On the F panel, enter the ship-via address and final destination address. Press Enter.

    The final destination is the optional address field that, if filled in, overrides the goods receiving address of the company.
