Not only does OTTO accomplish the complex task of pegging lower level
demand (purchases materials, manufactured items, and even services) to
the customer order, it can even parse a large purchase order, or
lot-sized planned order, for an item to inform a planner of exactly how
many of that item is needed for each day's requirements. OTTO (On-Time
Orders) is a system which is already interfaced into BPCS and is
intended to allow a company to achieve much improved on-time shipments.
It is an early warning system that gives you alarms of "potential
delays" that might cause delayed shipments and then recommends to a
planner what action to take to ensure that the customer orders are
shipped on-time. It even has a section that tells you what shop orders
need to be released on certain days. This section gives you "Releasable
Orders", whose components are available, and "Non-Releasable orders"
which may have 1 or more components not available. The non-releasable
section lists the components not available, tells what the exact
quantity of the component is that is not available (drop dead quantity),
what day it is needed, and then tells  supply order (planned or
purchased) and what drop dead quantity of that supply order must come in
so the shop order can be released. It actually explodes the BOM for the
end item to all levels to give releasable and non-releasable orders.

Marc:

The function you are asking for is integral to Systems Plus' OTTO
software and just one of its many capabilities.

Using its bi-directional pegging support, OTTO pegs purchased items or
any intermediate level, fabricated item to customer orders.  The
infomation is available via a variety of inquiries and reports.

For example, here is an inquiry for part 081E14410

                       Item Inquiry - Customer Orders
19:54:27  
 

Item: 081E14410                     On Hand:          .10  Date Limit:
12/31/99

The part is a sheet of galvanized steel found 4 levels down in the BOM.
There is 1/10th of a pound on hand and it is required on 9 different
customer order (Order #) line items (Ln#).  The total poundage required
is 18 pounds (Total Qty).

And for the record the majority of sites using OTTO are BPCS sites.

Subject: Pegging planned items back up to discrete customer orders.

I would like to know if anyone has solved the issue of planned item
pegging back to the customer order.  I know the data exists in BPCS, I
just haven't found anyone who knows how to extract it.  I had a
consultant in who said if we could flatten the bill of materials for a
planned item we should be able to drill from the child item up through
the bom to the end item, and to the customer order number. Unfortunately
he was not able to do this.  (We use Production version 405 CD.)

 

This is an example of what I am hoping to solve:

 

Currently, in our version of BPCS, all planned items (items that have a
demand in the system and have a planned order but have no open shop
orders yet), are consolidated based on the requested ship date.  

 

For example:



Customer:

Item 

Qty

Due

 

 


1

A

60

15-Apr

 

 


2

A

90

15-Apr

 

 


3

A

120

15-Apr

 

 


4

A

30

15-Apr

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 


One 'planned' order for Item A for 300 pieces is created in BPCS.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is there are way to not have BPCS do this automatic consolidation?  In
MRP systems I have used, automatic consolidation was a server flag that
was set to Yes or No, with a consolidation interval and horizon.  I
would think that BPCS would at least have the option to turn automatic
consolidation on or off.

 

Any help would be appreciated..

 

Regards,
