Planned Delivery Time and Requirement Date in ECC

Hello experts,

First of all I was confused whether this question should be posted in this forum or it should be for ECC forum. But I thought since I am from APO and Preqs are created in APO, I will be better to put this question here.

Here is the case.

We are generating Purchase Requisition in APO and CIF this Preq to ECC, Planned Delivery Time is calculated in Preq and accordingly requirement date is calculated. But we are observing some issue in Planned Delivery Time calculation.

Our understanding was

Planned Delivery Time is equal to GOODS ISSUE time in APO + Transportation Duration in Means of Transport in APO

But what we are observing are Planned Delivery time = Goods Issue + Transportation duration + 1

Yes we are concern about this "+1" days. Not sure whre is this additional one day is coming from.

We tried multiple option and in every case, where we are using GI time, one additional day is getting added to Planned Delivery Time. If we do not use GI time then Planned Delivery Time = Transportation Duration in Means of Transport, which is perfectly fine.

So question is, when using GI time, why one extra day is getting added. Because of this requirement date at supplying plant in ECC is not matching with requirement date in APO.

Any hint, pointer, input is all welcome.
