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.

To consider unassigned demands at all the DGs configured in the common code.

When an unassigned demand is created, RTAM publishes availability only to the DG which has a priority set in the common code while other DG's are updated with X onHand quantity and doesn't consider the unassigned demand.

By considering unassigned demands for all DG's configured, there will be a uniformity in the OnHand available quantity across all DG's and we can eliminate the above mentioned inventory discrepancy.

How will this idea be used?

By considering unassigned demands for all DG's we can maintain a consistency in the inventory levels and thereby eliminating the inventory discrepancy, we can avoid scenarios of over promising to the customer.

For eg. Consider an unassigned demand of 3 units, later inventory adjustment is done for Node A for 12 units, RTAM publishes 9 units only against the DG which is set as priority 1 in common code , while it publishes 12 units for all other DG's which are set in common code.
