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.

Add Order Optimizer Dashboard tracking for actual shipping vs. expected shipping

Add Order Optimizer Dashboard reporting to track actual shipping vs. the Order Optimizer expected shipping. Create new metrics to track how close actual shipments (from the nodes) are to what Order Optimizer assigned.
The metrics should be available in a flexible report that allows users to view aggregated at network level, subtotaled by node type (i.e. store/DC), or at the node level. Users should be able to run for flexible historical date ranges. Users should be able to view the report online in the UI or export the results. Users should be able to subscribe to an automated delivery of the report on a defined interval.
Calculating these metrics may require additional actual order shipment details to be fed into Order Optimizer; this request is assumed to include the related enhancements to Order Optimizer data inputs.
See also related RFE #103951.
Initial suggested metrics:
% of packages leaving node on/before the OO expected ship date
% of packages using OO expected shipping mode/carrier
% variance in OO expected Packages per Order and actual PPO
% variance between OO estimated ship cost and actual ship cost
