Procurement - delivery schedule


Active Member
We would like to identify a solution to communicate about delivery dates with suppliers.

We are interested in using forecast devilery schedule and precise delivery schedule.
Three steps that we need to identify in a purchase order (PO) in JDE:
- PO entered with an estimated delivery date (one date for all lines)
- the supplier acknowledges PO and provides promised delivery dates (it could be one date per item/PO line)
- buyer conveys to the supplier precise delivery dates

In JDE, we have only two dates available in PO header (requested and promised delivery dates), how could we manage precise delivery date ?

In addition, EDI messages could be a solution. Thinking about DELFOR (delivery forecast) and DELJIT (delivery just in time) messages, do they impact delivery dates in JDE ?
