Sales Order dates for delivery

I am a newbie to most of SAP and was wondering how are all the dates such as loading, goods issue etc... calculated from the delivery date? Assuming its based on sold to and delivering plant where is this config done and what is logic?

u can maintain those settings in OVXD


you can maintain Pick/pack time & Loading time in

SD>basic function>Delivery scheduling & transportation scheduling-->maintain durartion.

To maintain transportation lead time & transit time it can be done in logistic execution>shipping>basic shipping function>routes> define routes-->define routes & stages.

you can see the logic below:

when you are creating sales order first system will go with backward scheduling if it is not reach the dates then system will go for forward scheduling.

Backward Scheduling:

Reqested delivery date - Transit time = Goods issue date

Goods issue date - loading time = Loading date

Loading date - Transportation lead time or pick/pack time = material availability date.

In case Material availability date fall beyond requested date system will perform forward scheduling

Forward Scheduling:

Loading date = Material availabilty date + pick/pack time

Goods issue date = Loading date + Loading time

Requested delivery date = Goods issue date + Transit time

Delievry scheduling will be started only from the material availability date i.e., system will first determine the material availability date and then do scheduling. By default Standard SAP system does Backward Scheduling in case material availability falls beyond the required delivery date system will do forward schedluing
