Performance to Promise Dates: When a Distributor places a Purchase Order
against a Manufacturer, he has certain expectations on when he will receive the items
ordered. His original expectation is the OnTime Delivery Metric. However,
the manufacturer may give him a revised estimate as to when they expect to fill the order.
The manufacturers promise is called the "Performance to Promise Date Metric".
Example: ABC Company Orders 2 Products on Purchase Order #1234, with a Requested
Ship Date of June 10.
