Sourcing and Replenishment Network

You can define the rules that govern the movement of goods throughout your supply chain. This network is the backbone of your material flow, but you can further control its behavior by defining a time-phased replenishment strategy. Oracle Supply Chain Planning does this with sourcing rules and bills of distribution. Sourcing rules and bills of distribution both describe sourcing supply; i.e., for any organization, they answer the question "where do I get part A from?". (They never say "where do I send part A to".) Sourcing rules apply the answer to one organization or all the organizations in your enterprise. Bills of distribution define this behavior across multiple organizations (not just one or all).
