Production dates - v - Delivery Dates


(system) #1
I might just have answered my own question!

The Sales Order Ship By date gives the required by date for
Manufacturing purposes - Time Phased Report.
The Sales Order Need By date could give the Delivery Date if we were to
create our own Scheduled Shipments Report. The Report would use the Need
By date as the proposed Delivery Date instead of the Ship By date.

Does anybody know if this would have knock on affects on any other
Reports or Trackers?

Thanks in advance.

We are having problems with Customers who expect us to
have Parts in stock for them by a certain date but will not necessarily
accept delivery on this date.

Does anybody else suffer from this? If so how are you
coping with it in Vantage,
At the moment we are caught between whether to satisfy
Production Suggestions on the Time Phased report or delivery Dates on
the Scheduled shipments Report.

Hope someone can advise me.
Thanks
