BUSINESS ISSUES

  • Everyone uses the green screen item availability (Inventory Management, Item Availability – green screen option #5)
  • Problem #1: it’s green screen requiring another session and flipping between windows, not integrated via a right-click menu
  • Problem #2: it starts with quantity on hand, and gives a running total of receipts and requirement, “similar” to ATP, but there is no ATP inquiry in the system outside of order entry
  • Problem #3: both green screen ATP and Item Availability screens look only at single-level requirements, whereas Guide’s product can be used to show true requirements based on a blow through of the BOM to see what is currently on-hand compared to what is needed based on order quantity
  • Guide’s product is intended to be a set of “execution” tools in Powerlink and not just for planning functions

WHAT IT DOES

Item Availability:

  • Provides a Powerlink enabled interface to item availability at a line item and/or the item warehouse level
  • Replicates the visibility of item availability from the green screen and adds even more useful capabilities using the power of Integrator
  • Shows COs, MOs, POs, CMs, etc all in one easy to view window accessible from CO line item and/or item warehouse views

Indented Inventory Inquiry:

  • Ability to see indented BOM inventory on-hand vs. requirements
  • Highlights in yellow the items in the BOM that are short based on requirements
  • Levels within the BOM and color-coded for easy readability even in complex BOMs
