The activities associated with determining the origin and requesting product for the order (routing) and determining the delivery date for the order (scheduling). This may include placing a request or order for product to the supplying entity (manufacturing or sourcing).
The method/algorithm of assigning dates and reserving inventory is generally one of the following:
- Fixed lead time = A date is assigned based on a service level
- Capable-To-Promise = A date is assigned based on inventory and materials and capacity
Once order scheduling is complete a notification (Order Confirmation) may be send to the sending and/or receiving parties.
This process may update one or more date fields on order records; current scheduled shipment/delivery date, original scheduled shipment/delivery date.
