    Need to model in extra day in the lead time to provide allowance for packaging etc. without impacting the resource load

    Hi, 

    The client requires an  extra day post manufacturing, for packing etc, to ship the goods out. 

    This extra day needs to be factored in while promising the delivery to the customer. What is the best way to model this so GOP can add an extra day when coming up with the SSD, at the time time this extra day should not consume resource capacity, 

    If we use Fixed Lead time in PIM, will that work. Does the FLT consume resource capacity? 

    Or any better way to model this. 

    Note - this is for B2B scenario. So ideally the Work Order should be, created by SCO, for completion on a day before the SSD. 

    Thanks in advance

      Hi Sumeet,

      You can use the item attribute 'Postprocessing Days'

      for your requirement. B2B fulfillment honors this.

      Thanks,

        Hi Sunil,

         

        This is Manufactured Item, so B2B work order. Post Processing Days is applicable only for Buy Items. 

        I was thinking of using Fixed Lead TIme. But Fixed Lead time consumes resource capacity which I don't want to happen. 

        SO I don't have any solution to add an extra day.

      Hi Sumeet,

      Perhaps you can try adding 1 arithmetically to the Promise Ship Date in order to populate Scheduled Ship Date using Pretransformation Rules, I have attached a screenshot for reference. Let us know if that works.

        Hi Zia,

        Thanks for your comment. 

        Even if this could work, When it goes to the next step of orchestration (SCO Step), it will create the Work Order to complete on the new SSD (i.e.+1) - which we don't want, as the extra day should be post manufacturing for packing etc. 

        I think we need a solution which includes both GOP and SCO. 

        Thanks

      Hi Sumeet,

       

      Can you try to model an orchestration rule with providing a 'default lead time' of 1 day? 

      Alternatively, if your lead time is expression based then you can do so too.

      Check out the section Defining Lead-Times for Orchestration Process Steps: Procedure  [https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/saas/supply-chain-management/r13-update17d/faiom/setting-up-orchestration-processes.html#FAIOM1702198 ]

       

      You may also want to exercise the option 'Planning Default Branch' while modelling this requirement via orchestration.

      Do let us know if this works for you.

       

      Thanks,

      Sunil
