plant shutdown for physical inventory

We want to have physical inventory for 2 day in the month of september. How we can plan that no goods receipt or goods issue for delivery to be planned for these two days. Like it should be considered like weekend or holiday for that specifc plant. SO PO delivery date or outbound delivery picking date should not be physical inventory date.

without clear communication internally as well as externally to customers, vendors and your carriers you can't really assume that there will be nobody who is late or early and standing at your doors exact on these 2 days. And if they are coming from far away and it will cost you extra money if you send them away then you really think twice if you are doing that.

Your vendors will not know that your plant has a shutdown (even it is not really needed as I explained in my blogs Physical Inventory is more than just SAP - Legal Background and Preparation

and Physical Inventory is more than just SAP - Strategic counting

just because you change your plant calendar.

Even with a good communication you will usually face this situation that a few deliveries arrive or people want to pick-up some material.
