After maintining the schedules for the schedulling aggrement, at ME33L, depending upon the JIT schedulu indicator in the mmr at MRP 2 will decide the JIT schedule.
For schedulling aggrement releases with JIT or FRC, the release creation profile which is defined for the plant will be ueful.
The relese creation profile can be defined at SPRO
MMPurchasing scheduling aggrementrelese creationb profile.Here you will be defining the release horizon etc details, so that this will be gets defaulted into the aggrement and when you try JIT/FRC in the aggrement , the reasess will be done accordingly.

In the schedule aggrement how the schedules will be decided
The creation of releases (certain kinds of delivery schedule) under scheduling agreements is subject to the following basic conditions:
u2022 Forecast delivery schedules are sent to the vendor to provide the latter with a rough idea of future requirements. More concrete delivery data is provided to the vendor in the form of JIT schedules
o Forecast delivery schedules are transmitted once a month. The quantities are shown as monthly quantities. The release horizon is nine months.
o JIT delivery schedules are created once a week. Changes to the overall delivery schedule in the system also lead to the creation of new JIT schedules if these changes are not minor in comparison with the previous JIT schedule and exceed certain tolerances.
If both situations (new weekly schedule due, changes to delivery schedule in the system) occur on the same day, only one new JIT schedule is created.
JIT delivery schedules transmitted to the vendor set out the daily quantities for the next ten workdays.
JIT schedules determine backlogs and immediate requirements.
u2022 Planning runs and release creation take place on a daily basis.
Settings for the Creation Profile
You make the following settings in Customizing for Purchasing under Scheduling Agreement Maintain Release Creation Profile for Scheduling Agreement with Release Documentation.
For JIT delivery schedules, you select Changed or next date. For forecast (FRC) delivery schedules, you select Next date only.
For JIT schedules, you specify that backlogs and immediate requirements are determined.
For JIT schedules, you specify daily aggregation and enter 10 workdays as End. For FRC schedules, you choose monthly aggregation and enter 180 workdays as End.
This has the effect that JIT delivery schedules show the daily quantities for the next 10 workdays and FRC schedules the monthly quantities for the next 180 workdays (9 months à
Hooe this will clear your doubt.
