Finding the delivering location

The delivering location is determined based on the following:

  • Sourcing rules if the sourcing rules are set up
  • Resource pool serving the service region if sourcing rules are not setup

When determining node based on resource pool setup, Sterling Order Management System searches for all resource pools that service the delivery region and have the skills needed (if any) to perform the delivery service. All nodes associated with available resource pools are considered for sourcing the product.

Sterling Order Management System ensures that:

  • The node selected has capacity available for servicing the delivery request.
  • The node selected has availability for all the products being delivered as part of this delivery request. Sterling Order Management System can be configured to generate automatic transfer or procurement orders from other locations if sufficient stock is not available in the delivering location. The following figure illustrates delivery coverage.
