Fulfillment of bundle or install lines across multiple zones (Zones configured as separate ship nodes in OMS)
Client has two zones within an owned warehouse.
Regular zone is the warehouse zone that holds inventory owned by the client.
Consignment zone is the warehouse zone that holds inventory that is Consigned, owned by a vendor.
Both zones are considered part of the overall inventory and available for orders, but due to the actual ownership of the inventory, it is required to physically and logically segregate the products.
Client often sells product offerings as a bundle or an install, where Items are grouped together under one logical parent Item.
Item 123456 (parent) – Laptop Bundle
Item 234567 (Child 1 – Quantity 1) – Laptop => Qty 1 Stocked in Regular zone
Item 345678 (Child 2 – Quantity 1) – Laptop Carrying Case => Qty 1 stocked in Consignment zone
Item 456789 (Child 3 – Quantity 2) – Spare Dell Laptop Battery => Qty 1 stocked in Regular zone and Qty 1 stocked in Consignment zone
For bundles or installs, the allocation is done only if all of the individual children items are in stock or in proportion of being able to allocate a complete bundle/install based on the children ratio. When making a reservation, OMS needs to be able to reserve/allocate the bundles/installs across these two zones.
So, when the client account manager places order for:-
Quantity 1 of Item 123456 (Parent 1) , allocation should happen as below:
234567 (Child 1) – Allocate 1 qty from Regular zone
345678 (Child 2) – Allocate 1 qty from Consignment zone
456789 (child 3) – Allocate 1 qty from Regular zone and Allocate 1 qty from Consignment zone
When dealing with Bundles or Installs lines, OMS is not able to do the allocation as expected across regular and consignment zones, since these zones are configured as two separate ship nodes in OMS.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
One of the requirements from the client is to sell product offerings as a bundle or an install, where items are grouped together under one logical parent Item. Via this idea, looking for a solution through which this requirement can be met to fulfill bundles/installs across multiple zones within a warehouse, with the constraint that these multiple zones are configured as separate ship nodes in OMS.
