Shortage - PO Acknowledgement

Hi all,

On ByD, we can execute Supply Planning Runs and Release Purchase Proposal Runs.

And we can create PO Acknowledgement.

To improve the productivity, it is important to follow up the shortage effectively.

Could you tell me your case how-to-follow up the shortage?

For instance 200 materials are ordered to each suppliers. And the 10% materials(20 materials) have shortage or denial. Each materials have more than 3 suppliers.

I think it would be useful if we can execute xxx Runs considering the acknowledgement in sourcing rank. However, it seems not to be able to do such operation at present.

How to improve the productivity - reduce the number of click?

Best regards,

Naoki

    Dear Naoki Matsuo,

    Yes you are correct there is xxx Runs considering the acknowledgement in sourcing rank. Actually you release PO and then you would get acknowledgement.

    May i suggest , since there are more than 3 suppliers for one product, i can recommend you that use Quota arrangement to split 200 into 3 suppliers.

    Lets assume a simple scenario.

    Supplier A deliver product ABC usually 80% of the ordered

    Supplier B deliver product ABC usually 70% of the ordered

    Supplier C deliver product ABC usually 60% of the ordered

    now you know the capability of the supplier so build a quota arrangement in 3:2:1 for supplier A, B and C respectively.

    so now when a 200 comes up, it will be split into 3 suppliers as per your requirement and also the same can be fulfilled.

    OR you can think of an Add-on option which should actually get the acknowledgement/confirmation from supplier before order.

    Mark this as answered or helpfull, if this helped with your query.

    Regards

    Leo
