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.

Order Optimizer reporting for processing plan vs. actual units processed

Add Order Optimizer reporting to display and analyze previously configured processing plan values as compared to the actual units processed for those nodes. This reporting should be flexible and allow users to select different date ranges and different groupings of nodes (e.g. stores vs. distribution centers vs. full network).
Metrics available in the report should include, but not necessarily be limited to: node; node type; city; state; assigned processing plan; beginning of day backlog; unit demand allocated; actual units processed; % to plan; starting CCU; ending CCU. An aggregate row by node type (i.e. store / DC / full network) would be a nice to have for comparison to individual nodes.
The report should include options to display by day (for 1 or more days) or to aggregate days together into weeks/months and display those values.
The report should be able to be viewed online or exported from the UI on-demand. Users should have the option to subscribe to an automatic delivery of this report on a defined interval.
