    1)
    a)customer requested delivery date is 08/25/2003 and system uses backward scheduling to determine material availability date which is 08/20/2003.
    b) based on shipping point configuration the pick/pack time is 1 day

    2)
    a) As per shipping point conf, pick/pack time is 1 day and load time is 1 day. therefore the load date is 08/21/2003 and
    goods issue date is 08/22/2003.
    3) 01- Germany standard factory calender.

    4)As per route determination the transit time is 1 day and as per the route factory calender 08/23 and 08/24 are holidays and hence the delivery date is 08/25/2003.
    5) R00020
    6)Transit time is actual time for transporting goods. Transportation lead time is time required for transport vehicles to come to the shipping point.

    7) Goods issue day is 04/01/2010. (Not assuming route factory calender)

    8) Jan 06th 2010

    Backward scheduling: Based on requested delivery date – (transit time, loading time, and pick/pack time) system calculates the material availability date.

    Forward scheduling: If backward schedule is not possible( if material available date is then past) Then system uses forward scheduling. For this it takes current date + (material availability date, transit time, loading time, and pick/pack time date to determine delivery date.

    13) Requested Delivery Date.

    1) Time needed for loading is one day
    2) After loading the goods time taken to check and issue goods
    3)
    4) Time taken to transport the goods this is also called as transit time
    5) Route: R00020
    6) Transit time : time from the goods issue to the goods reaching the customer
    Transportation lead time: time from transportation planning date to loading date this is also called as packing time
    7) B
    8) C
    9) A
    10) B
    11) Backward scheduling: This scheduling is done when we can deliver the goods on time with all the lead times, requested by the customer.( we need to minus the lead times from the delivery date and if the required availability date lies in the past than the order we need to go for forward scheduling )
    Forward scheduling: This is followed when we can’t deliver the goods on the date requested by the customer and the delivery date is given by taking in to consideration with next availability date and the lead times are added and the delivery date is given

    If backward scheduling is not possible, the system will use Forward scheduling to determine the Delivery date. In this the order date is taken as the base date and the lead times are added to determine the delivery date of the material.

    Yes, Edit>>fast change of>>reason for rejection

    What is the ‘Transportation Planning Date’ for the line item 20 ?
    03.03.2011..sales orrder> schedule line> shipping tab at the bottom of screen

    What is the over all processing status of the line item 10 now ?

    Deliver ONLY the line item 30 of the sales order. Specify the Delivery Number.
    Order blocked for delivery as a result of credit check. Couldn’t open VKM4 to unblock credit check.

    Bill the delivery that you created in question No. 13 above. Specify the Billing Document Number
    Dependent on above

    After delivery and billing ( as you have done in the question No.13 and 14 ) can you now go back to the order and add another line item ?
    Yes, as one line item is still open.

    How to view the availability in the Order ?
    Display availability icon at the bottom

    What is the difference between performing ‘Availability Check’ and viewing ‘Availability’ ? How do you perform availability check ?

    Material : M-01 , Quantity : 10
    Material : M-02 , Quantity : 15
    Material : M-01, Quantity : 20
    Done

    Make the payment terms of the last item as Net 0 and the last 2 line items as Net 30 . Now specify the payment terms at the header level and the line item level for the new item you have added in question No. 23
    40 – 0001 at line item, ZB01 at header level
    50 – NT30 at line item, ZB01 at header level
    60 – NT30 at line item, ZB01 at header level

    A. “X”

    7. Create a Sales Order for Customer 1400, material M-01 using the item category you have created in Q.2 and write down the SAP pricing conditions you see in the sales order ?

    14. Create your own copies ( Zxxx ) of the following SAP standard item categories.
    1. TAN – SHA1
    2. TANN – SHA2
    3. TAD – SHA3
    15. Without using a BOM, configure the Honda CR-V business scenario using a sales order based on we have discussed in the class. Specify the Order # you have created. Use the sales item categories you have created in Q. 14 above. Choose the following products instead of the different parts discussed.
    1. M-01 for Model-Lx
    2. M-02 for Alloy Wheels
    3. M-03 for Heated Seats
    4. M-04 for Seat Covers

    SAP Schedule Line category
    1. Configure a new schedule line category say ‘Zx’ as a copy of the standard schedule line category ‘CP’ ?

Explain the reasons for the determination. ( Hint: If the material is not in the SAP Material Listing and Exclusion, please add the same)
    A. Created Material M-SG and listed too…but not being able to create the order.
    Schedule line category determined would be CP as default category relevant for all controls for schedule line category.

    A. 601

    7. Can you determine if the line item.10 of the Sales Order # 4969 is externally procured or sent from our own warehouse ? Give the reasons for your answer.
    A. Because the schedule line category is CP and line item category is TAN, therefore it is sent from our own warehouse. If its TAS or CS then its third party.

    8. Can you find out the Movement type associated with Line Item. 10 of the SAP Sales Order # 4969 directly from the Sales Order without going to the Goods Issue Document ?
    A. Yes…Schedule line>> shipping>> procurement.

Then the system carries forward scheduling from current date thus adding the time for each stage and proposes a new delivery date.
