IBM Sterling Ideas
Shape the future of IBM!
We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Post your ideas
IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.
Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you, 1. Post an idea 2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you 3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notifications on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
CoC - 18.2
Consider the following scenario to better explain the exact requirement -
Item ID - 123
Onhand Inventory in DC - 100
Onhand Inventory in Stores (all stores combined) - 100
Safety Factor (DC) - 0
Safety Factor (All Stores combined) - 4
Availability to Promise (WEB) - 100 + 100 - 4 = 196
There is no configurable feature in the product to achieve this requirement. However, we can configure 4 per Store (Node) but not at the Node Type level.
Let us know if there is anything configurable in the present product.
We want the feature to be at the Node Type level.
FYI, this is a very common requirement for apparel retailers. I expect this feature to be available OOB and not through any customization.
The inventory picture per store is shallow in Eileen Fisher. Hence, having a safety stock of 4 per store will never lead to a sale in the SFS program.
At the same time, having a safety stock of zero may lead to potential cancellation of web orders as the store inventory is very dynamic. Hence, its a very logical requirement of business to have a safety stock on the store inventory when consuming the web order demand as part of the SFS program.
We strongly recommend this feature as OOB.
Let me know if you have any Qs.
