Multi-level order management is a game-changer, enabling extraordinary flexibility in supply chain planning and execution. It allows businesses to always choose the most cost-effective sourcing and execution options for every order, no matter the service level requirements.
Businesses can manage individual orders on multiple levels by decomposing them into as many sub-orders as necessary to optimally execute on sourcing, warehouse, shipping, and service level requirements.
If an order must be sourced and fulfilled from multiple locations, it can be split into multiple orders and shipments. If each shipment is best fulfilled by many different parties, then these can be split again, each with their own specific actions, such as warehouse dispatch and label printing.
No matter how many times an order is broken apart, supply chain practitioners maintain visibility into both the bird’s eye view of the original order, as well as granular, drill-down visibility into the details of each split.
