2874360 - Order lead time shorter than expected in Optimizer log


You have a certain lead time for transport between two locations, let’s say:

Lead Time = GI + Transport Duration + GR


But sometimes, running optimizer you observe the created order’s lead time is one day shorter than expected.


For example:


Transport Duration = 48 hours

GR duration = 2 days


Order start date = 21/10 – 00:00:00

Order end date = 24/10 - 23:00:00


Seems the lead time is 3 days and 23 hours.


You expect the order end date to be on 25/10 – 00:00:00.


The same is observed in the product view (/SAPAPO/RRP3) when using time zone of location and in the optimizer result log.
