Release 18.0 includes new enhancements and capabilities for the Automotive industry
RTVN 18.0 Highlights for Automotive
Already a leader in delivering multi-party networks into the automotive industry, One Network’s RTVN 18.0 extends the Automotive industry solutions with new capabilities that include improved inbound supply planning across multiple tiers, enhancements to global logistics, and predictive capabilities in transportation management.
ONE’s Integrated Inbound Solution
One Network’s Integrated Inbound solution is the only solution that delivers synchronized capabilities across orders, supply chain and logistics in a single solution. The solution dramatically reduces inventory and carrying costs, reduces the logistics premium freight and expedites, and lowers the IT expense by enabling the end-to-end inbound process from forecasting, inventory netting, forecast collaboration and discrete order collaboration to transport orders, advance ship notices, shipping, track and trace, receiving, and invoicing.
New Enhancements and Capabilities for Automotive in 18.0
Here are the latest enhancements and capabilities in 18.0.
Global Supply Demand Match (GSDM)
One Network takes into account inbound supply and logistics to optimize the service to the customer. One Network matches supply to demand and coordinates logistics dynamically. Thus supply is intelligently prioritized according to where it is needed most and since the container contents and cost trade-offs are known, logistics are optimized to ensure the lowest cost to final destination.
Ocean Container Tracking
One Network gives you full life cycle visibility to contents of containers and location. Track containers from the time they are built, from origin to final destination. New 18.0 capabilities include:
- Broad support for global logistics, with ability to track individual containers, inco terms, integration with ocean line tracking, Assign a Container Move to a Movement
- Create a Demurrage Alert Subscription
- Create a Detention Alert Subscription
- Create a Packing List for a Container Movement
- Create a Return Move from the Containers Tab
- Defining Container Requirements for a New Shipment
- Defining Per-Equipment Cost Rating in Base Rates
- Manually Creating a Container Move
- View Booking Response Details from the Containers Tab
- View Container Events from the Containers Tab
- View Container Move Cost Estimates
Deployment Order Collaboration
Deployment Order Collaboration enables plants to collaborate on supply lines and allocate inventory as necessary to ensure the smooth and optimal running of plants.
- Enhanced inventory visibility within and across enterprises
- Plant-to-Plant Transfers – streamline accounting processes
- Ensure continuity of supply
Logistics Enhancements and Capabilities
Tactical Plan is a tool to analyze a DC’s operational capacity requirements for the next week or two by taking into account order forecast, shipments and movements into consideration. It provides a comprehensive timeline view of activities across transportation orders, transportation order forecast, outbound orders, dock capacity, labor capacity, marshalling lanes, etc., to help optimize staging of warehouse to meet with logistics execution.
Transportation Planning Workbench and Activity Monitoring
This is a tool to adjust the optimal loads generated by the Planning engine, and/or to create new loads manually in compliance with planning policies. Operators can adjust the loads in real-time with a consolidated view of vehicle stops, a Gantt view of past and future assignments to the vehicle, and a geo view of vehicle routes. The resulting changes will be fully compliant with the planning and vehicle operational constraints (such as site work hours, flexibility, DOT constraints, etc.).
Buyer Orchestrator / Supplier Orchestrator
The Orchestrator Organization works on behalf of Retailer or Supplier or Both to orchestrate the supply chain process including inventory planning at the customer warehouse/DC, managing and forecasting demand at their customer stores/DC and propagating and replenishing the demand. The Orchestrator collaborates on behalf of their customers/Suppliers on Orders and owns the Transportation and Financial while working with Carriers. Orchestrator Organizations can have the ability to view and manage the master data on behalf of their partners under partner’s value chain.
We are making a limited release of new learning agents that employ a Particle Swarm Optimization technique to cluster data and seek opportunities to split the network into sub-regions. 64-bit support has also been added. These enhancements help improve the scalability of our routing algorithms being applied to large, complex instances of the Vehicle Routing Problem and its many variants.
This is similar to a marketplace exchange for cars needing moves and shippers offering it.
The Carrier Gateway provides the ability for carriers to collaborate with shippers across different business networks in a single portal. Carriers can manage their transportation operations, Scheduling, Financials and Claims process across all the Shippers. Carriers will also be able to better utilize Market Maker for matching demand with their available capacity.
Collaboration on Deployment Order
Shipper and Consignee and Plant to Plant transfer – Shipper and Consignee can now collaborate on quantity and dates for deployment orders.
Order Update Alerts
Alerts sent when order parameters (such as service level mode, payment terms, etc.) are updated. 18.0 added alerting capability on all order types when any field is modified. This feature allows interested parties to subscribe for email notifications. The user can select the fields that they are interested in and can set thresholds on the changes for which they want to be notified.
For example, the user can subscribe to an alert for use cases such as:
- Alert me when the service level changes
- Alert me when the price changes and the change is above X%.
Split Order Functionality
Split Order Functionality is used by the Global Supply-Demand Match and allows orders to be split.
Accessorial Rate Collaboration in RFQ
Accessorial Rate Collaboration allows carriers to respond to Accessorial rates.
