    A topic which might pop up is:

    as soon as you entered the invoice (MIRO), you can create the bill to the customer however the material flow takes longer than the invoice intake (thinking about EDI for instance). It might be the case that the invoice is faster on end customers side than the goods.

    We did not found out how to consider the delivery time of the supplier so far. Any further comments on this are welcome (wink)
