Problem Summary
---------------------------------------------------
How are the Pick Date (PDDJ) and Ship Date (PPDJ) calculated by TMS for 'make to order' items?

Problem Description
---------------------------------------------------
We are investigating the Transportation Management Module (TMS) and we are finding that the sales order detail (F4211) dates are being updated during the shipment routing process.

According to Doc ID 625513.1 – For outbound shipments the Pick Date (PDDJ) and Ship Date (PPDJ) are calculated by TMS based on the Customers Request Date (DRQJ), using transit days and the workday calendar. This will work well for discrete ‘make to stock’ manufacturing.

How are the Pick Date (PDDJ) and Ship Date (PPDJ) calculated by TMS based on Request Date (DRQJ) for made to order items? Are item lead time and work center capacity taken into consideration?

Because most of our sellable items are configured ‘make to order’ vs. discrete ‘make to stock’, we require our Pick Date (F4211.PDDJ) and Ship Date (F4211.PPDJ) to be set according to item lead time and work center capacity.

Is it possible to continue to calculate the dates in TMS but NOT update the sales order detail file (F4211)? What negative consequences would we run into if we do not update the sales order detail file?


Does anyone use Transportation Management Module for outbound 'made to order' (W-LNTY) items?

How are you getting past the updates to F4211 dates when the shipment is routed without bypassing routes and rates?

I have an SR open with Oracle and so far we do not have a solution. I would prefer no modifications to get past this.
