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.

Ability to override the Node Transfer Schedule Data and use the external Transit days by enhancing the GetDeliveryLeadtimeUE

In ScheduleOrder API/Transaction we use GetDeliveryLeadtimeUE to pass the transit days. This Transit days are taken into availability date calculation only when Node Transfer schedule is not setup in the system.

If the Node Transfer Schedule data is setup then this UE output is ignored and not considered in the availability date calculation.

The New idea is to enhance GetDeliveryLeadtimeUE with an addition indicator which can guide whether to honor the Shuttle Schedule Data in YFS_NODE_TRANSFER_SCHEDULE table or to use the GetDeliveryLeadTime set in GetDeliveryLeadtimeUE as Transit Days.

This New flag/Indicator can be defaulted to false i.e continue to use "YFS_NODE_TRANSFER_SCHEDULE" data if available (Continue to work as per the current state).

If the end user explicitly want to override the "YFS_NODE_TRANSFER_SCHEDULE" data with external Transit days information , then they can set this new indicator to do the same.

We are looking for this enhancement in V10.
