Auction scenarios development

The following future auction scenarios are in development or are going to be developed and need to be be taken into account for future development;

  1. Only create clock supply Only create clock (pre) sales supply by the supplier organization based on batches that are already on an auction warehouse with external stock capabilities via goods movement. RFH warehouses stock are expected to support this scenario;
  2. From farm clock sales Clock sales supply is created by the supplier organization based on batches that are on the supplier (external) despatch warehouse. The auction sales channel supports direct Customer delivery that is despatched from Supplier (external stock) warehouses to the customer location after committed auction sales orders;
  3. Create auction delivery order based on Clock (pre) sales supply Clock (pre sales) supply is created by the supplier organization based on batches. Auction delivery orders are created based on clock (pre) sales supply in Floriday for supplier (external) warehouses. Commercial supply data e.g. prices are only part of clock (pre) sales supply and are no longer part of auction delivery orders.
