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.
When a shortage is reported from a store (through out of the box IBM Store module) that results in the order being backordered, the backorder demand is not being considered in the overall shipping aggregate ATP in OMS. As a result, this will result in OMS publishing the incorrect ATP picture to the selling channels (RTAM ATP publish). This is because, IBM Store module invokes changeShipment to cancel the lines from the shipment and also to move the lines in the order to a backorder state. When the lines are backordered through the changeShipment API, the ship node on the order line (the node to which the order was allocated initially) is not removed. This results in the backorder demand not being considered in the RTAM ATP recalculations when inventory becomes available in any other of the other nodes. This results in an oversell issue and is rectified only when the backorder is reprocessed by the scheduling process and is assigned to a different fulfilling location.
The same oversell issue occurs there is a partial reject from the DC.

How will this idea be used?
To ensure that the OMS RTAM ATP calculations result in accurate ATP reflective of all backorder demands in the system.
