ASCP

Supplier Capacity

Traditional planning systems like MRP uses item attribute lead time offsets to align supply order due dates with demand dates of need. The ASL providers greater accuracy in making lead time offset calculations during the planning process. You can specify supplier & item specific lead times. This ensures that your orders are placed early enough to provide the selected supplier adequate time to react to your demand for each item.

Setup Steps for the Source & Destination

Setup Steps for the Source

1. Install the source instance patch Before beginning the functional setup of the source instance(s), a patch must be applied that will create several new concurrent programs, flexfields, profile options, and database objects on the source database. The patch that is required is determined by the versions of the application and database on the source instance.

Optimization

Optimize:  Select if you are running an optimized plan. Before selecting, verify that you selected Constraints tabbed region, Constrained Plan field.

Constraints

Constrained Plan: If selected, Enforce Demand Due Dates is selected, all fields in the tabbed region are updateable with all constraints defaulted to Yes. The default is cleared. You cannot set all Resource Constraints and Material Constraints to No. If you set any Resource Constraints to Yes, you cannot clear Calculate Resource Requirements.

Organizations

Org:  An organization which this plan should plan.

Net WIP:  Select to consider discrete jobs and other production orders as supply in the planning demand/supply netting process.

Net Reservations:  If checked, ASCP generates pegging of on-hand supply to sales orders that matches the reservations recorded in the source transaction system.

Aggregation

Plan Start Date: If you have never run the plan, this field displays today's date. If you have run the plan, this field displays the planning horizon start date of the last run.

Plan End Date: Calculated planning horizon end date based on your entries in Buckets and the owning organization calendar.

Setting Plan Options

This section describes how to set plan options. The plan options appear in the following tabbed regions:  Main  Aggregation  Organizations  Constraints  Optimization  Decision Rules

To access the plan options do either of the following: Go directly from the Navigator Access the Plan Names form, select a plan, and click Plan Options.

Subset Plans

There are some situations in which it makes sense to plan a portion of the supply chain separately, outside of the overall supply chain DRP plan.

Collection Methods

Collecting data can take a significant amount of time compared to the time for the overall planning cycle. Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning (ASCP) provides a collection method that allows the collections duration to be reduced in cases where information about some - but not all - planning-related business entities on the planning server needs to be updated.

There are three collection methods:
