  • Multi-stop planning - pick and drop activity on same location

    Dear good people,

    Has anyone managed to build a multi-stop shipment that has both pick and drop activities on one of its stops? Here's a summary of my scenario:

    Order 1: A --> B , 2 ship units
    Order 2: A --> C, 2 ship units
    Order 3: A --> D, 2 ship units
    Order 4: C --> D, 1 ship unit

    The above 4 orders are bulk-planned successfully as follows:

    S1: A (pick) --> B (drop) --> C (drop) --> D (drop)
    S2: C (pick) --> D (drop)

    What I'd like OTM to do is:

    S1: A (pick) --> B (drop) --> C (drop, pick) --> D (drop)

    where at stop C, both pick and drop activities take place on the same stop since there is sufficient capacity on the shipment equipment (truck).

    When I merged S1 and S2 into S1, I get the following:

    S1: C(pick) --> A(pick) --> B (drop) --> C (drop) --> D (drop)

    which is not efficient, since stop C would be visited twice.

    Has anyone encountered this scenario before?
    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Cheers,
    Simon.

    Check this one by doing the logic configuration and by setting up the parameter :
    MULTISTOP ALLOW PICKUP AND DROPOFF AT SAME STOP to true.

    Check this one and let us know if it works.

      Hi Vipin,
      Many thanks for your response. I will try this out and post the results.

        Hi Vipin,
        I couldn't find the planning parameter MULTISTOP ALLOW PICKUP AND DROPOFF AT SAME STOP from the list. Could you let me know where to locate this parameter?

        Thanks,
        Simon

          Hi,

          Go to Transportation Planning and Execution > Power Data >Planning > Logic Configuration.
          Define a new logic configuration ID.

          Assign this ID to Planning parameter set under multistop Config ID.

          See if it works.

            Hi Vipin,
            Once again, thanks for responding ever so quickly. However, I was not able to find the Logic Configuration option as per your instructions above. Is this option only available in OTM 5.5 CU4? I'm currently using CU3.

            Thanks,
            Simon.

              I have not worked on CU3 so not very sure of it. May be some one else can respond better how it can work in CU3 environment.

                Hi ,

                Did you use LAT LONG OR LANES TO CALCULATE THE DISTANCE ?

                  Hi Kishore,
                  I intend to use Lat / Long for distance calculation using SIMULATION.

                  Regards,
                  Simon

                    Simon,

                    If Lat/Long is used it plans based on the distance .Clacualte the distance from the lat long then see it its fesable to plan as per yourrequirment.

                    I would suggest to create the lanes and create Distance for the lanes .(Jut for testing)

                    And chage the Multistop planning parameter to Lookup only(YOur rate offering should also be lookup only) Same with rate service .

                      Hi Krishna,
                      Thanks for your response, but my issue is not about distance. If you look at my original problem statement, I was just wondering if it's possible to schedule both pick AND drop activities at the same location. When I tried to resequence stops in a hope to get a pick / drop at the same location, OTM disallowed it.

                      Thanks,
                      Simon.

                        Simon:

                        See the attached.

                        FYI...I haven't been able to achieve this through bulk planning.

                        If you get it to work, please let me know how you got there.

                            Hi All,

                            For this configuration, I have done some setups. But I didnt get the proper solution.

                            I wanted to configure,

                            1. The stop New Delhi should perform both Delivery and Pickup at the same day.
                            2. The Bulk Plan page showing 5 stops (New Delhi stop coming 2 times). But it should shows 4 stops only.

                            Please see the attached screen shot for the clear information.

                            Please let me know where I have done the mistakes and please let me know the necessary steps to resolve the issue.

                            Your help will be appreciable.

                            Thanks in advance.
                            Suneel.

                              Try to increase Max Num Of Shipment Segments in your Rate Offering.
