Transfer order buffer time

Hi,

We have two manufacturing sites; one is the US and one in Canada. We use transfer orders to ship from one site to the other. We are currently trying to use scheduling in Epicor and I’m looking for a way to add a bit of buffer (5 days) time between transfer order receive time and sales order ship date. I’ve added a transfer time of 5 days and a receive time of 5 days in part Maintenace. This helped with the jobs not scheduling to be finished the day its due to ship and it’s added the appropriate travel time between sites. I know I could add more time to my travel time, and it would arrive before the date listed in time phase, but I feel like I’d rather have a better idea of arrival time. Has anyone had any experience with this?

thanks
Nick

Have you looked at site configuration? There’s an estimated days on the transfer definition.
