“Delivery plans are used when products are purchased for large quantities at high frequency. It is precisely in the automotive industry that this is a common mode of supply. The principle is to have an object – the delivery plan – with a target quantity and the appropriate conditions, to plan the entries in the form of “classifications” (according to the order requirements) and to send the orders – the “releases” to the supplier in connection with the delivery plan. Versions are created for a defined horizon and updated at defined intervals. In addition to operational releases, it is possible to send forecast shares to the provider to inform them of planned requirements in the future. Thus, the delivery plan is an object that supports collaboration with the supplier. Here you can see that in the Net worth field in the head of the delivery plan no value has been updated: Net value is zero If you save the rankings for a position in the delivery plan, the system adds up the quantities already registered and compares them to the target quantity and the quantity already delivered. To have an overview of all open quantities. A sharing profile determines the period during which versions (delivery plan types) are generated against a delivery plan and passed to the provider. This also controls the frequency of versioning; the aggregation of the quantities provided for from the day following the establishment of the release; and the carrying out of a tolerance check. The main points to be taken into account in the context of a framework contract are the delivery plans are defined and managed as documents in the system.
It is possible to group these documents under different types of documents depending on the business requirements. First, you need to define the document types and their attributes in customizing. With SAP S/4HANA Logistics` Sourcing and Procurement LoB, it is possible to use the SAP Best Practices activation approach to tailor delivery plans. However, if you use the traditional customizing approach, this blog post can be helpful. SAP`s standard SD delivery plans normally contain: here you can see a quota agreement that is in effect when we try to create an order; There are two different options from which we can choose; Step 2 – Indicate the number of the delivery plan. In this step, a release profile is maintained for delivery plans with proof of release. This profile defines the output creation strategy and how the backlog and immediate requirements are taken into account when creating a version….
