  • Planning Parameters and Multi-Stop Planning Rates

    I have read the posting in the Performance, Scalability Forum and have a quick question regarding Bulk Plan performance.

    For those of you that are planning hundreds of orders, what are your Logic Configuration settings for these parameters:

    MULTISTOP COLGEN SAVING ALGORITHM
    MULTISTOP CONSOLIDATION SAVINGS TYPE
    and
    MULTISTOP SEQUENCING ALGORITHM

    We are using Concurrent Savings, Column Generation and Complete Enumeration respectively and are trying to plan an average of 150 orders * 9 DCs. The Plans are each taking 4+ hours.

    I realize there is no quick answer as every installation is different, but can someone please advise with the settings above?

    One other thing, is there any hope in using Multi-Stop Planning Rates (in Help) and creasing a subset Rate Offering to speed up multistop routing?

    Hi Joe,

    I am not sure if you got answer to this, But if you define the multistop planning rates then OTM will look to the rates defined in this table alone not all other rates. So this would lead to better performance.

    Hope this helps.

      I made an attempt to configure some and didn't see any change in the bulk plan results. Have you ever set these up in 5.5? I came to the conclusion that this was outdated functionality. Am I worng?

        If you refer webhelp, they have stated clearly that you can speed up multi-stop processing by limiting the amount of rates that OTM looks up for each possible route. This is what multi-stop planning rates allow you to do.

        I haven't really worked on this, just for reference had mentioned this.
