    Title:
    Global Order Promising - Must have?
    Summary:
    is GOP needed for OM?
    Content:

    I am new to Oracle and trying to learn and understand more about OM and GOP.

    It sounds like we do not need GOP in order to use Order Management.

    However, I am unable to confirm what functionalities are missing when GOP is disabled...

    Any advice or information anyone can share with me?

    Thanks

    Irene

    First, to clarify, the packaging of Supply Chain Management Cloud services was recently updated. Starting in June 2019, customers who subscribe to Order Management Cloud automatically get Global Order Promising. (Customers who subscribed to these services before June could purchase them separately.)

    Now to your question.... Order Management can run without Global Order Promising, but in that case, you will need another way to check availability of supply and schedule order lines for delivery. Global Order Promising also assigns the supply source for back-to-back orders if you're using that feature.

    Typically, customers who chose not to license Global Order Promising along with Order Management Cloud did so because they had a different order promising solution that they wanted to use, or had simple fixed lead times for all orders that could be hard-coded via an Order Management business rule.

        Thank you for the answers.

        We do have a different Order Promising solution and are evaluating integrations between them.

        What about other areas of impact.. I also heard that it might impact other modules like forecast to plan.. Is that something you are aware of as well?

        Thanks.

      Global Order Promising is pre-integrated with Supply Planning Cloud, so that you can promise orders in Global Order Promising based upon planned supply. Global Order Promising and Supply Chain Planning Cloud also share some of the same infrastructure - collecting supply and order transaction data to be used as the basis for planning and promising, as well as some shared master data. 

      However, other than having to maintain your configurations independently, or write the integration yourself, there aren't any fundamental restrictions on using 3rd-party planning with Oracle Global Order Promising, or using 3rd party order promising with Supply Chain Planning Cloud. Both solutions provide a full set of CSV file loads, and the necessary extracts to interface with 3rd party systems.

      Hi Matt,

      As you rightly pointed out that some of the advanced fulfillment flows like B2B and Drop-ship needs GOP assigns the source .

      In such a case,we would need GOP right?

      Thanks ,

      Another thing to consider is possibly use of alternative items in Sales. I am not sure but I think GOP is required to item substitution in Sales

        That is what I have heard too.. 

        We will have to decide if it is worth investing in GOP just for that since we have a 3rd party Order Orchestration System.

        Thanks!!

      A work-around you might have thought about is change planning method to 'not planned' for those items that you don't want to plan. Either in source or in simulation set

      Is there any URL or video to understand GOP in simple way and the relation between ATP, Sourcing Rules, Assignments Roles and then how to link and configure all of them to work together in R13? Thank you in advance.

        The best place to start is the Oracle SCM Cloud Using Global Order Promising documentation. It has a good discussion of these concepts. There's also an Oracle University Order Management and Fulfillment Cloud Implementation course, which includes four GOP-related lessons:

        • Global Order Promising – Introduction and Overview
        • Order Promising Rules
        • Key Order Promising Functionality
        • Data Collection and Global Order Promising Administration

        Finally, there's a whitepaper posted here on Cloud Customer Connect that may help: How Global Order Promising Sources Supply for Your Orders.
