Problem: SAP provides the user a wealth of information about a sales order confirmation at the time of order entry but history of those details are lost once the order is saved or adjusted. Business Operations teams need the ability to see how order confirmations trend over time – is the limiting factor product availability, Allocation, bad configuration?
Solution: This accelerator enables the logging of all sales order availability checks along with the details of the requested date & quantity along with the results at the time of the check. There is both a tactical and strategic achievement with this function
- Tactical – when reviewing the log, the user can run BOP on the results to attempt to improve the confirmation situation. This enables very specific BOP triggering no possible with the broader standard BOP filter functions
- Strategic – drop the table into your enterprise analytics package to understand trends on why orders are not fully confirming at the time of entry. Was it due to lack of availability, Allocation limits, certain product families trending worse than others – all available due to the logging capability
