Production Order Shelf life expiration date

Hello Guru,

I have some problem with the set-up of our production order.

But before exactly telling the problem, just for some knowledge, we are using legacy system (a non- SAP system) which also part on releasing, confirmation of the production order of ours. Now, the problem we are having is that in our legacy system releasing of production order has happen, then after that all data necessary will be transfer to the R/3 SAP. the situation we are expiriencing right now is that when an production order was set to status released in our legacy system id adjusted the start date 1 day before the plan date but the shelf life expiration date (SLED) will be fixed, so in R/3 it will also adjust 1 day on its start date and the shelf life expiration date (SLED) is also computing and adjudted 1 day, we want to have this not adjust, same behaviour as in our legacy system. what should we do in the R/3 side for this shelf life expiration date (SLED) found below of the General Tab of the production order will not adjust/compute as the start date adjusted?


Before Released of order:

Legacy = start date (14.09.2008), SLED (31.10.2008)

R/3 SAP = start date (14.09.2008), SLED (31.10.2008)

After Released of order:

Legacy = start date (13.09.2008), SLED (31.10.2008)

R/3 SAP = start date (13.09.2008), SLED (30.10.2008) WRONG!

I will make short for my problem, on R/3 side only, when i do CO01 (25.09.2008) as the start date and save the PO (status CREATED) it will have an automatic/computed SLED (31.10.2008), and when i do made CO02 change PO and released it the start date adjust 1 day before the plan date i indicated (24.09.2008) which i put up when doing CO01earlier, how could i make sure that the SLED (31.10.2008) wont be change/compute since that start date adjust when i change status of my PO to RELEASED.

Hi Ryan,

Up to my knowledge as per the standard SAP System will ask the date of production at the time of Goods Receipt (Pop up comes to maintain the date of production).

OK , If this is the case then try it by using user exit.

For example we are using date of one specific phase confirmation as a Production date.And in case of cancellation of that Phase (CORS) we have put one check in which system ask

'Do you want to reverse the manufacturing date!'

For this you can use function module "POPUP_TO_CONFIRM'.

So you can use same functionality over here also.Put checks by user exit and ask regarding reversal of production date in case of change in the schedule date.
