Actual GR Date in Inbound Delivery takes current Date
The Output SPED gets issued after PGI from the Outbound in an Intercompany, it generates an Inbound automatically.
Problem: On the Inbound the field "Actual GR Date" gets populated with the same date as when PGI occurs. The PGI occurs in the US Plant while the PGR is supposed to occur in Europe. The Route Transit Time is 30 days.
Example: If the PGI Date is today, 18th May the system populates the Inbound Delivery field "Actual GR Date" as 18th May.
Research into Causes:
It appears the system is not adding the Route Transit Time. We used the "New Route Determination Time" the the value "A" for the Inbound as well as the Outbound and we do not maintain entries in Table TROAL. Yet, the Inbound still populates with the PGI Date from the Outbound.
The ATP in Europe considers Stock In-Transit for real-time updates. So, this Inbound gets considered for ATP in Europe starting from today's date, 18th May 2011; so Europe will start promising their customers that these goods will be available from today; however, in reality the products will be available in Europe only after 30 days. This is the impact of the field "Actual GR Date" on the Inbound Delivery.
