Collaborative Planning (CP) is a web-based application that provides advanced capabilities for communicating, planning, and optimizing supply and demand information.
- Oracle Collaborative Planning replaced Trading Partner Collaboration (TPC) for demand sharing and supplier commitments.
- Planning horizon is 14 months vs. previous TPC horizon of 12 months. This Horizon is currently displayed as 26 weeks plus 8 months.
- In Collaborative Planning, suppliers will receive net demand in the form of planned orders. These planned orders are supply required by the Oracle planning module, for that date and quantity, and already considers minimums and safety stock.
- Forecasts (Planned Orders) are shared in the Collaborative Planning application. These forecasts are in addition to the open Purchase Orders received prior to the CP publication. At the time of CP publication, the expectation of the supplier is represented by the open PO Need By Dates and the CP Planned orders.
- Suppliers are expected to plan, purchase, and build per these Planned Orders. MSI will issue Purchase Orders and/or Blanket Releases for Supplier to ship and invoice against. MSI's liability is limited to the lead-time of Planned Order items.
- Suppliers are required to provide commitments throughout the horizon - against open POs and/or Blanket Releases in iSupplier and against planned orders in CP. Supplier performance metrics have been created to track attainment.
- To improve/insure Supplier’s efficiency within Collaborative Planning, we are recommending
- Review the Training materials that can be found on this Portal
- Use the Mass update capability available for Collaborative Planning.
- Suppliers should update their Commitments weekly in CP by Tuesday COB.
