Innovative Order Scheduling

Innovation path in order scheduling

Abstract
This article provides comparison of today's predominant order scheduling techniques - Lead Time (LT) and Available to Promise (ATP). It analyzes how these methods perform in low inventory environment and introduces potentially replaceable inventory (PRI) method to shorten lead times.

Introduction

One of the major inputs to production planning and scheduling is lead time - duration between order being placed and material received by the customer. Lead time and PO commit dates have profound influence on customers' ordering pattern, cancellations, inventory levels, and ultimately, the profit. Shorter lead times help customers to adjust planning in response to changes, reduce customer's inventory cost, thus increasing profit. Well known champion, Dell, runs at inventory turnover of 34 holding only a few days of run rate on their books.

Shortening lead times beyond the supply chain capability comes with heavy price tag:

    ☀ Expedite charges, air freight costs
    ☀ Inefficient use of material in supply chain
    ☀ Missed shipments leading to loss of share of business received from the customers.

Lead times have to be realistic. Excessive increase of lead time reduces profit:

    ☀ Loss of customer satisfaction and share of business received from the customers
    ☀ Practice of double booking leading to cancellations and rescheduling

Effectively run companies have realistic lead times that are as short as possible. Let us review the mechanics of evaluation of lead times and commit dates for customers' orders.

Lead Times Table (LT)

Currently, the predominant method to establish order dates and lead times (LT) uses table to assign promise dates based solely on the order quantity. The larger the order is the longer the quoted lead time is. Its popularity arises from simplicity in implementation and management. The method works well when order patterns are stable and customers are not sensitive to lead times. When order pattern's vary, LT compromises the quality of promise dates (too long, too short) because it does not check available supply. It can be manipulated when customers split larger orders in smaller ones to gain shorter lead time. These issues can lead to expedite charges, order cancellations, lost bookings, and lost customers.

Available to Promise (ATP)

ATP uses a computation-intensive method to calculate promise dates. Stored information about bill-of-materials, yield, lead times, capacity, and inventories run against existing orders. This allows companies to know what supplies remain after orders are filled, thus establishing the ATP. New orders are scheduled by allocating specific materials and evaluating commitment dates for each individual order.

ATP is an integral part of standard ERP functions such as SAP or Oracle. ATP is a major improvement over LT because of its ability to adjust promise dates with real inventory and capacity. A significant disadvantage of ATP is that it cannot reschedule existing orders based on information about new orders. This blind spot leads to unnecessary extended lead times during periods of low inventory.

Potentially Replaceable Inventory (PRI)

PRI extends the capacity of ATP to adjust both new and old orders to present conditions. It can release an existing order's hold-on-materials if the materials are needed for the new orders. And it can do this while not adversely effecting the existing order's delivery dates. Lets consider a simple example: The company sells red and black cars. It has one black car available today, and one unpainted car available in 15 days. Customer A places PO for one black car due in 20 days. Which car should be allocated to that order?

There is no correct answer to the question. If we allocate the black car, another customer requests black car due in 5 days - and we will not have any available in the system. If we allocate the unpainted car, another customer will ask for red car due in 20 days and we not have any available in the system. The PRI method is designed to handle this situation. If the second customer needs previously allocated material, the system will reallocate the inventory and promise the second order. PRI method improves inventory utilization therefore allowing reduction in inventory while maintaining required lead times.

Summary

Ability to quote the shortest possible lead times without exposure to extra costs reduces overall inventory in the supply chain, prevents double bookings and cancellations. It immediately reduces inventory required to meet delivery performance goals. In long term it accelerates revenue and aids to increase in market share and profit.

Passing

Farewell to
Dr. J. William Gotcher Ph.D., C.P.M
Professor Emeritus
California State University - East Bay

Last July Dr. Bill Gotcher passed away. I first met Bill in 1978 at a two day seminar that he was presenting to The Institute of Supply Management-Northern California, then PMANC (The Purchasing Management Association of Northern California). It was a thoroughly researched presentation with information that I could take directly back to my work place in Supply Management. I was to learn over the years that Bill approached his professional life in this thorough way with all contingencies covered.

When it came time to establish ISM-NC sponsored Annual Student Awards for the Graduate and Extended Education Programs at Cal-State East Bay in Supply Management, Bill was the very first name to come up to the ISM-NC Board of Directors. He had touched each one of them in some positive way along their career paths and in his generous long term service to ISM-NC.

Dr. Gotcher was a friend, business associate and mentor. Bill was very supportive of my venture into providing professional services in Procurement, Supply Chain, Materials Management and Contracts. His advice was to watch the procurement professional grow in the business climate, a growth curve that continues at a high rate. Bill encouraged Procurement Professionals to continue their learning experience after college, "challenge yourself to take certification courses, strive to achieve a higher level". Bill will continue to receive recognition of his excellence programs for ISM and the procurement professional.

Dan P. Plute

* * * * * * * * * * *

On a personal note, Bill was a great mentor to me (as he was to many) openly volunteering his time and experience when he saw the need to do so. He encouraged me to pursue teaching and took a chance in hiring me to teach couple of classes for him at Cal-State East Bay. This changed my professional life profoundly; teaching became my great passion and he continued to be my mentor in this endeavor for over twenty years. I'm deeply in debt to him for this.
