The system raises this escalation task because the due date of the task has been reached and the task is not completed. The system escalates the task because the planned ordering date maintained in the purchase request has been reached. The due date of this tasks in calculated from the Planned ordered date on the Purchase Request. This type of task always has high priority. The due date is always the same day.
Note: The planned ordered date is a calculated field and value of planned ordered date is derived as below:
- Get default from supply chain and never change it
- Get lead time from purchasing contract if assigned
- Get lead time from product if available
- Take five days before delivery period start date
The task is relevant for the manager who is working on the operational purchasing org unit maintained in the purchase request or any alternative approver for the operational purchasing org unit or cost center.
