Hi PP Experts,
Why and when do we require to maintain Replenishment Lead Time( RLT ) in material master.
Dharmaraj Subramanian replied
Replinishment lead time means it is a total time to produce or procure a material or assembly.
This is mainly used for availability check. By using this time, system will show the error of missing parts list. Check in tcode OPJJ, Check withour RLT field, this is used to consider RLT for material availability check.
If the material delivery date falls after the RLT, system assumes that material is avaialble.
However to do availability check, RLT is not a mandatory. Because for Inhouse production, system will calculate RLT by considering inhouse production time, GR processing time & Opening period.
Same for External procurement, system will consider Planned delivery time, GR processing time, Purchasing time.
