  • Automatically Create Best Buy Shipment

    Hello All,
    I am new to OTm. My customer requires that Oracle will automatically create a Buy shipment for this.
    The business scenario is that when 2 or more shipping lane(even Multi leg) is defined between source and destination.
    Oracle will suggest the best and automatically create buy shipment with it.
    The best option will be either through cost or delivery time.
    Please help.

    Thanks,
    Amit

      OTM will automatically create the best buy shipment with Order Release > Actions > Operational Planning > Create Buy Shipment > Bulk Plan - Buy

        Hello,

        I have created a multi delivery leg itinerary in the same way which oracle has given as a case study.

        But when i create an OR and try to create a Direct shipment. I get the following error message.

        No shipments built for order bundle


        Unable to process nextAvailableWorkPeriod(2010-08-18 17:31:38 UTC, LOAD, 0, false) for Calendar entity OGVG.BAN_CAL: unknown activity

        Please help

        Thanks
        Amit

          Hi Amit,

          Verify your calendar activities with the OR pickup date and delivery dates. I beleive you had the date emphasis at the OR level as BOTH.

          BTW, where did u define the calendar?

            Hello Chirthal,

            I have only specified my delivery dates. I have not set any activity in the calander.

            I have defined the calendar in the location setup.

            I am still facing the error.Buy shipments are nit getting generated for 3 stop location.

            The same which i followed in metalink note.

            Regards
            Amit

              Define the activites - LOAD and RECEIVE in your calendar. It should resolve your issue.

                Hello Chirthal,

                i have defined a shipping lane from loc1>loc2>loc3 when i choose the mode profile as TL for all legs then it works fine.It creates two seperate buy shipment .

                Again with same shipping lane when i choose mode profile as vessel or rail it says no valid rates although i have defined rates for the same.

                Another help i require is that my customer doesnot want to open OR and select the best buy shipment it will be automatically generated and the OR will be moving to Planning final from Planning new without any manual intervention.

                Please help.

                Regards
                Amit

                  In terms of configuration for planning, e.g. Modes, Itineraries, Rates, etc, it is not a simple topic.
                  I would suggest you to go through some OTM training to understand the basic concept first.

                  For automatically generating shipments in OTM, you can configure batch process via:
                  Version 5.x
                  Planning and Execution > Process Management > Bulk Plan Order Releases

                  Version 6.x
                  Operational Planning > Process Management > Bulk Plan Order Releases

                  Or set up event-triggered process using Automation Agent to build Shipment on Order creation. However, this is not a good approach because you will lose opportunities for consolidation.

                        Hello Joseph,

                        Thanks for the useful link.

                        I followed step by step for the following note:

                        460493.1 - Multi Leg Shipment Scenario in Oracle Transportation Management

                        but it did not work with mode profile as Voyage/Rail but when i specified mode profile TL for all legs it went fine.

                        Can you please suggest if anything is missing in the document.

                        Regards
                        Amit
