  • Divisions / Different Sites of the same Organization

    One of the company is looking forward to enable a global logistics process using OTM across its world sites ( China, Australia, Netherlands and multiple US sites).

    Each of these US site might procure goods from the same supplier in China so while planning all purchase orders (from all sites) should be clubbed together and planned for freight movement - combined the freight should be brought together to a port / airport and broken into multiple shipments (de consolidated) and sent to each of the respective site.

    How do we go about defining the different divisions/country sites within OTM.

    For holistic planning - we need to have a single domain ? or how can we define this Org structure in OTM.

    What is the purpose of a sub domain - is it applicable to Freight forwarders.

    I know through VPD one can manage/restrict access of data related to a location for the users based out of that location so that data for other sites won't be available for view/update to them.

    How can we configure this - Have a single domain ? or multiple sub - domains then how do we do holistic planning ?

    thx and rgds,

        Hi Krishna,

        If you are following the multi-domain structure then can you consolidate the shipments across the geographies assuming you hv set up the domains based upon geographies.

          Krishna/Vipin:

          We have done something very similiar as you are talking about. The big issue is whether you allow the departments to view the shipment data across the company. We are having an issue with certain sub-domains having access to only their orders (which are in the sub-domain) and their shipments (which are in the main domain). We are able to configure the VPD's to handle these viewing capabilites but an issue arises when we want to build orders into shipments with the same users. If they can view all each other shipments it should be fine.

          Thanks,
