    Approach for Demand Supply Pegging
    Summary:
    Approach for Demand Supply Pegging
    Content:

    Hi Champs,

    We have a scenario as stated below. Any inputs/approach shared would be of much help and appreciated. Thanks

     

    1. Consider that an order was placed on 01-June-2019 for 100 Qty of item A and since there was no stock for this (Say) , a PO was created for the same qty with its Receipt date was 10-June. Hence on 10-June the Qty on hand was 100 

    2. On 10-June another sales order was created for the same item for 100 qty (say) and the demand of new sales order picked up the PO supply that is indicated above. 

    In total, the original sales order that was placed on 01-June still remains unfulfilled at large. 
    In order to avoid this situation, the need to have an ad-hoc pegging to incoming PO supplies is needed. 

    Please note that ,above case is NOT to be taken as back-to-back in nature, because back to back will be used in the event some special items are ordered

     

    Thanks,

    Sunil

    If I understand correctly then you would like to reserve/peg a PO to a SO (and have planning respect it)

    If that is the case than this is certainly possible to reserve a PO to SO in Manage Reservations and Picks UI

      Sunil, try to reserve the PO to the original SO in inventory 

      Enable reservations in the plan

      Run the plan after collecting the reservations

      I hope it works..

      BTW if you are collecting from legacy system you should be able to upload the reservations from file

      Good luck

      Thanks for your response Roy.

      Im presuming you are pointing to the 'Manage Reservations and Picks' UI

      Also what exactly does it mean to enable reservations in the plan & where would that impact?

       

      Thanks,

      Sunil

      To enable reservations in the plan:

      In the plan options > Supply > Organizations and Schedule > Click on the organization > Demand and Supply Netting > check reservations

      Hi Roy,

       

      Thanks for that.

      In order for any Sales order to show up in Manage Reservations and Picks it should have got reserved at first place via on-hand stock.

      Only then Can I go ahead and change the on-hand supplies to PO Supplies.

      Once this PO is received it automatically reserves this specific item to the pegged SO.

      however the original intended requirement is that because we do not have enough stock at first place, so we want to peg a Open PO (potential source of supply) such that the demand can be sufficed via this supply.

      Regards,

      Sunil

      Hi Roy,

       

      Your understanding is correct and so is the recommended approach.

      However, in order for the SOs to show up in this UI of Manage reservations and Pick , the sales order lines need to get in 'Awaiting Shipping' Status.

      which means ,they should get past the 'reservation' step.

      To do so, it needs enough stock on hand.

      This defeats the whole purpose of our use-case.

      where in a user would be interested to peg an SO with a PO when its a question of shortage - Stuck in reservation step and not been able to come to 'Awaiting Shipping' Stage.

       

      In order to test this, I created a new orchestration without  reservation step and the above understanding was validated.

       

      Thanks again for your inputs. 

       

      Thanks,

      Sunil
