Scheduling an order or order line

You can use multiple different mechanisms to schedule an order.

Sterling Order Management System Software provides the following mechanisms to schedule an order:

  • Use the Schedule agent for scheduling. Based on your pipeline configuration, Sterling Order Management System Software can invoke the schedule agent at an appropriate time and the scheduling function is carried out.
  • Use Schedule API to request the scheduling of a particular order. You can request the scheduling of a particular order using this API. Sterling Order Management System Software does essentially the same processing as it does with the scheduling agent except that you are controlling the sequence in which orders are picked up for scheduling.
  • Manually schedule the order lines. In this case, you are deciding the node and dates against which the order line should be scheduled. You should use the inventory availability inquiry API before using this API.
