Ability to override the Node Transfer Schedule Data and use the external Transit days by enhancing the GetDeliveryLeadtimeUE

In ScheduleOrder API/Transaction we use GetDeliveryLeadtimeUE to pass the transit days. This Transit days are taken into availability date calculation only when Node Transfer schedule is not setup in the system.

If the Node Transfer Schedule data is setup then this UE output is ignored and not considered in the availability date calculation.

The New idea is to enhance GetDeliveryLeadtimeUE with an addition indicator which can guide whether to honor the Shuttle Schedule Data in YFS_NODE_TRANSFER_SCHEDULE table or to use the GetDeliveryLeadTime set in GetDeliveryLeadtimeUE as Transit Days.

This New flag/Indicator can be defaulted to false i.e continue to use "YFS_NODE_TRANSFER_SCHEDULE" data if available (Continue to work as per the current state).

If the end user explicitly want to override the "YFS_NODE_TRANSFER_SCHEDULE" data with external Transit days information , then they can set this new indicator to do the same.

We are looking for this enhancement in V10.

How will this idea be used?

This provides the ability for end client to have Node Transfer Schedule information outside of sterling. It can be hosted in a third part system instead of maintained in Sterling OMS.

Provides a control over the Availability Date calculation.
