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.

Need to accomodate larger volume for OMS table YFS_SHIPMENT column Total_Volume

Need to accomodate larger volume for OMS table YFS_SHIPMENT column Total_Volume

Field to be defined something like TOTAL_VOLUME Decimal (16,4) ... and not TOTAL_VOLUME Decimal(14,4)

At the moment the TOTAL_VOLUME(14,4) does not accomodate over sized packages when units are in mm

How will this idea be used?

it is felt that the best way forward for this issue would be to amend the "TOTAL_VOLUME" column in DB table "YFS_SHIPMENT" table to be defined as something like TOTAL_VOLUME DECIMAL (16,4) .... and not TOTAL_VOLUME DECIMAL (14,4).

This would accommodate a volume of 999999999999.9999 = 10mX10mX10m box ... A box would never get to this size.

At the moment 14,4 allows for a volume of 9999999999.9999 cubic millimetres = 9.9999999999999 cubic metres, which is a box that is roughly a box 2.15mX2.15mX2.15m .
