GR processing time and PDT
We have a requirement to ship every other Friday (every 10 days). Would we set the GR processing time to 10 in the material master? Planned delivery time is 35 days.
Also, GR processing time of 2 would be every Tuesday, 3 Wednesday, etc. Is that correct?

With MRP type PD system runs backward scheduling, where the basic finish date is the requirement date.
I really think that the best option for you is to use a planning calendar and a periodic lot sizing procedure. That's the only way to ensure that the replenishment proposals will be always created on the same day of the week. Otherwise, dates calculation will be affected by non-working days and you may have replenishment proposals on different dates.
