ASCP Integration with Oracle Transportation Management

Are you looking for integration of transportation of goods into your Advanced Supply Chain Planning (ASCP)?  Most planning systems have no visibility of delays in transportation and their impact to manufacturing utilization or customer service. With version 12.1.1+ ASCP can now integrate with Oracle Transportation Management (OTM). 

The integration will provide:

  • Leverage Oracle Transportation Management Supply Chain Event Management to obtain real time, projected material arrival dates.
  • Provide a Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) process and associated web services to consume events and generate planning exceptions to provide planners real time visibility to transportation delays.
  • Use the updated dates in ASCP interactive planning calculations to calculate the impact of transportation delays on downstream orders and take corrective action.

For details, you can refer to Integrating Oracle E-Business Suite with Oracle Transportation Management (Doc ID 1546042.1).

ASCP Enhanced Exception Management in R12.2.2

Advanced Supply Chain Planning (ASCP) R12.2.2 introduces enhanced functionality for Exception Management.  Prior to this enhancement, ASCP generated all exceptions for all items and resources with attached exception sets. You can now control which exceptions ASCP generates, thus saving the computational burden of generating unneeded exceptions.

A new window called Exception Group allows you to select specific exceptions from a list of available exceptions. You can save the Exception Group and attach it to plans using a new plan option field. When the plan is run, ASCP generates only the exceptions listed in the Exception Group.

For more information regarding Enhanced Exception Management in Release 12.2, please refer to the Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning Release Notes for Release 12.2.2, Doc ID 1504893.1.
