Delivery plans are normally used in order to show long-term agreements with the suppliers and/or special situations due to large purchase quantities. They are immensely popular among the suppliers mainly because of their wide integration within the disposition and the possibility to use the electronic data exchange (EDI). Furthermore, they make it possible to reduce the warehouse inventories thanks to the long-term predictability for the suppliers and customers. However, the monitoring of the delivery plans is at least as important as their execution. Unused quantities, as well as delinquent deliveries should be quickly and easily identified, in order to ensure that the company will work as smoothly as possible.
The SAP Standard Process
The SAP Standard does not offer many useful opportunities when it comes to solving some major issues about the delivery plans. It is difficult to identify the remaining open quantities and the supply back orders are seen after a while. Furthermore, when frequently used, it can lead to some occasional, but very annoying inconsistencies in the system. For example, it may happen that some classifications in MD04 take inexplicable values or some deliveries remain MRP-relevant

- Take notes during the processing of the delivery plans which you can later be available for any future editing.
- Moreover, you can easily create and send directly delivery expediters by mail or fax
- Finally, your delivery plans will be examined on an on-going basis for inconsistencies, which could be fixed with the simple touch of a button. The access to all essential functions (display of the delivery plan, material, and supplier) is integrated directly in the output.
