  • Order priority

    Hi all,

    Can you please help me in this scenario

    There are 2 order releases:
    1) OR 1 - EPD:6/09/2009 LPD: 8/09/2009 (weight:1000LB)
    2) OR 2 - EPD:5/09/2009 LPD: 7/09/2009 (weight:1000LB)

    Capacity limit for each day is 1 truck (weight:1000LB)and the orders weights are such that only order 1 can get planned.

    Assuming bulk plan will run at 7/09/2009. Presently, Orders are getting picked up on a random basis. Planning engine sometimes plans OR1/OR2 into the shipment.


    Question: How do we achieve order priority such that orders with shorter time window get planned first?

    Expected result: OR2 should get planned as the the LPD for OR2 is 7th Sep.OR1 still has 1 day left when it can get planned.

    The way to manage this is to select only the orders you want to be planned for the bulk plan. So if you run it on 7/09, you should use a saved query that selects LPD <= Today

      Thanks LourensGlog!

      What if we run it on 7/09, using saved query that selects LPD <= Today and resulting shipment still has some capacity left to accommodate some more orders?

      How to assign orders (with LPD>=today), if there exists some extra space after initial bulk plan - it will be a manual action only??

        Hi Nipun,

        What I would do is (manually) update the bulk plan results, and OTM is not very user friendly for this IMHO.

        To do so, select the 8/09 orders that would fit on a planned shipment with capacity left, then select the orders on that planned shipment, and then run a bulk plan for all those orders. This should give you your manually 'optimized' shipment.

        There may be easier ways to do this, but I am not familiar with those.

          Thanks for the approach.

          But I am looking for some automatic approach with minimal manual intervention.

          Is there any field/parameter in OTM5.5that provides some priority to orders while planning?

            The mere fact that Order Priority is introduced in 6.0 means that it wasn't available in 5.5

            I am interested to see some results of the new 6.0 feature: I noticed it involves a dozen parameter settings, so it could be quite hard to find the setting that fits your needs
