Backward scheduling is the calculation of deadline dates: the arrival time at the customer site is calculated as the earliest possible goods receipt time at the customers unloading point on the requested delivery date. All four of the delivery and transportation scheduling lead times are subtracted from the customer’s requested delivery date to determine if this date can be met.

The transit time, loading time, and pick/pack time are subtracted from the customer’s requested delivery date to calculate the required material availability date.

The system calculates backward scheduling as follows:

Requested delivery date minus transit time = Goods issue date

Goods issue date minus loading time = Loading date

Loading date minus transportation lead time = Transportation scheduling date

Loading date minus pick/pack time = Material availability date

By default, the system will calculate delivery dates the closest day, taking into consideration the working days of the shipping point and a rounding profile. In this case the system assumes a 24 hour work day and lead times can be entered in days up to 2 decimal points. This is referred to as daily scheduling.

Please Reward If Really Helpful,

Thanks and Regards,
