Taking an Appointment
When taking an appointment for a service work order, there are some
considerations you might want to think about. For example, supplemental capacity,
node notification time, or preferred customer slot.
© Copyright IBM Corp. 1999, 2011 11
Considering Supplemental Capacity
The Supplemental capacity may be defined for the selected resource pool.
Sterling Selling and Fulfillment Foundation can be configured to automatically
consider that extra capacity every time an appointment is taken for certain
preferred customers. If that is not the case, however, and you want to consider
supplemental capacity on a single appointment, check the Consider Supplemental
Capacity checkbox in the Override inner panel.
Considering Node Notification Time
Ship nodes generally require a certain notification time for them to be able process
a service request. If this is a high priority service request, you can ignore that
minimum notification time for the node. To do this, check the Ignore Node
Notification Time checkbox in the Override inner panel.
Considering Product Availability
Sterling Selling and Fulfillment Foundation considers product availability when
displaying the available appointment slots. If there is no product availability
during an appointment slot, that slot is not available.
Clicking on the Product Availability action in the Constraints inner panel takes you
to the Product Availability screen, where you can use the Change Nodes action to
specify a different ship node or procure from node if there is no product
availability at the current ship node.
You can also check the Ignore Product Availabilty checkbox in the Override
inner panel to remove this restraint and plan appointments without considering
product availability.
Awaiting Procurement Confirmation
If configured, Sterling Selling and Fulfillment Foundation enables the procure from
node to manually confirm transfer requests. While product lines are awaiting
confirmation from the procure from node, the message "Few Prod Lines Are
Awaiting Procurement Confirmation" is displayed in the Constraints inner panel.
Clicking on the Product Availability action in the Constraints inner panel takes you
to the Product Availability screen, where you can use the Change Nodes action to
specify a different procure from node that may not require procurement
confirmation.
You can also check the Ignore Product Availabilty checkbox in the Override
inner panel to remove this restraint and plan appointments without considering
product availability.
Selecting the Time Slot for Service Work Order Appointments
About this task

slots:
12 Sterling Selling and Fulfillment Foundation: Distributed Order Management User Guide

available slots are found, or if the slots that were found did not accommodate the
customer's schedule.

Chapter 6. Managing Team Members on Service Work Order
Appointments
Managing Team Members on Service Work Order Appointments
A team member is an individual to whom the execution of the service work order
appointment is assigned.
Typically, a service resource is composed of several team members. These team
members are defined for each resource in the Applications Manager. When taking
service work order appointments, Sterling Selling and Fulfillment Foundation
automatically assigns the resource's team members to the appointment, if they

Types of Related Orders
A related order is an order that is either chained to or derived from a different
order.
A chained order is linked to a parent order and the lifecycle of one affects the
other. For example, if an order is placed with a Seller who must source an item
from a ship node that they do not own, the Sales Fulfillment pipeline may be
configured to create another "chained" order that differs from the Seller's regular
release process. This allows the owner of the ship node to handle the order
according to their own business practices while also allowing the original Seller
organization to maintain visibility of the order and in turn reflect any changes such
as delivery dates and carrier services in the original order.
Note: Chained orders can be created for product items that belong to a delivery
request. Chained orders can be created for provided service items and delivery
service items.
In some business scenarios, the Seller of the parent order may become the Buyer of
the child order. Therefore, the Seller organization associated with the chained order
must also be configured as a Buyer organization through the Applications
Manager.
A derived order is associated with a parent order and the lifecycle of one does not
necessarily impact the other. Examples of a derived order include a return order
that is derived from a sales order and an exchange order that is derived from a
return order.

Using Schedule Order
Order scheduling indicates that a node or nodes have sufficient inventory to fulfill
an order. Once an order is scheduled it can be released to the applicable node or
nodes. A scheduling rule determines the node or nodes that the order can be
scheduled with based on inventory availability and node preferences. For more
information about scheduling rules, see the Sterling Selling and Fulfillment
Foundation: Distributed Order Management Configuration Guide.
While performing this action from the Order Console, you can select a scheduling
rule. This function can only be performed if the payment status of the order is 'Not
Applicable' or 'Authorized'. You can also choose to release the order immediately
after scheduling it. If you do so, you can also choose to override the release date of
the order if you want to release it at that moment, regardless of the calculated
release date.
For example, an order is using a scheduling rule that schedules the ordered item to
a node 100 miles from the ship to address. However, a new node has been added
to your Enterprise that supplies the order line items and is only 50 miles away
from the ship to address. A new scheduling rule has been created for this node.
Chapter 10. Order Console Screens 59
You may decide that the order should be shipped from a shorter distance and
change to the scheduling rule for the new node.
Note: If you face problems while creating a work order for MTC, verify that the
following configuration settings are set up in the Applications Manager:
vIn Catalog Management, ensure that the VAS Compliance Service item with
service activities is configured.
vIn IBM®Sterling Application Platform, ensure that the attribute "Requires VAS
Compliance" for Buyer Organization is enabled, and the Compliance Service is
configured with required item classification and run quantity.
vIn IBM Sterling Warehouse Management System, ensure that the retrieval
strategy is configured for locations associated with VAS activities.

Immediately, you can manually release the order later or

Override Release Date Check Override Release Date if you want the current release
date to be overridden by the date calculated by the rule you
have selected.
Choose OK to schedule the order.
Release Order Screen
Once an order has been scheduled to a specific node, you can release the order to
that node. When you release an order, all of the necessary information (such as
ship to address, line item quantity, and carrier service to be used) is sent to the
node. Depending on the pipeline, the information may be sent as a release or as a
chained order.

Modifying an Order's Carrier and Carrier Service
A Carrier is an organization that provides carrier services between buyers, sellers,

Carrier. For example, UPS, Federal Express®, and the United States Postal Service
are all Carrier organizations.
You may want to change Carrier or service details. For example, an order may be
associated with a Carrier that only provides Ground delivery. The customer
decides that they need to have the order delivered as soon as possible. You may
