Feasibility Study – Suppliers’ ASN Reconcilation

When we perform VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory) receiving at our warehouse and perform receiving of the shipments based on the shipment documents, the electronic feeds from the suppliers do not include ASN (Advance Shipment Notice) information.  We need to perform the suppliers and ASNs’ reconciliation from our customer’s planning and forecast application, and triggers the receipt feeds back to this application as well.

To-Be Process

In this case when the valid supplier/vendor does not have ASN we are to manually create an ASN and send the Receipt feed to the Planning and Forecasting system.  If the reference numbers in the receipt feed will not match that application’s ASN number, the application is able to determine that the receipt has been manually created.

Work flows:

  1. User logins to the Planning and Forecasting application
  2. Search for the expecting ASN
  3. Down load an ASN as tab delimited flag format and save it on local PC
  4. Generate an ASN into WMS (warehouse management system) and receive the shipment after physical inspection.
  5. After receiving, extract Receipt feed in WMS with ASN Numbers
  6. Upload the feed into the Planning and Forecasting ftp Server.
