|ATP Inquiry||Enables you to make delivery commitments to customers while taking an order, or to verify from where a line can be fulfilled|
|Demand||Communicates current or future product needs to Oracle Inventory and other manufacturing products for forecasting and planning purposes|
|Reservation||Allocates inventory to a specific order line from a warehouse, subinventory, lot, or revision|
|Schedule Detail||Lets you split a line's supply so that part of a line may be fulfilled from one lot, or part may ship at a different time, without requiring separate lines|
|Ship Set||Requires that all lines with the same ship set number ship together|
You can schedule order lines with multiple ship-to locations, shipping warehouses, request dates, promise dates, schedule dates, and inventory details. With ship sets, you can specify which lines on an order must be shipped together, thus guaranteeing that a ship set is released only when all lines in the ship set are available for pick release.
From the Sales Orders or Schedule Orders windows, you can request on-line ATP inquiries and schedule shipment dates for a single order line or detail, a ship set, a configuration, or an entire order. If the date and quantity you request are not available, Oracle Order Entry/Shipping displays the earliest date (after the schedule date) that you can ship the quantity you require according to your inventory and planning parameters.
You can also schedule shipments for models with options, just as you can with regular lines. You can change warehouse and shipping information for each shipment schedule. You can also add, change, or delete model options, which allows you to rearrange your scheduled shipments to support customer or internal requirements.
All scheduling activity is actually perfomed on schedule details, not order lines. However, when you request a scheduling action on a line, the action will apply automatically to all associated schedule details.
You can either enter a schedule preference in the Schedule Action field for each order line or order line schedule detail, or choose a scheduling action from the Schedule dialog window via the Schedule button. You may want to indicate your scheduling preference on each order line or order line schedule detail when you want to demand some and reserve others. However, if you want to perform the same scheduling action on all items in one configuration, order, or shipment, it is more efficient to assign scheduling actions from the Schedule dialog window.
Oracle Order Entry/Shipping recognizes demand and reservations for orders or order lines on hold.
