Location Capacity Group

Requirements | Location Capacity Group Detail | Related Topics

A location may have multiple capacities. To capture all the capacities for a single location, a location capacity group needs to be created. A location capacity group defines a set of location capacities and how these capacities are triggered in terms of Mode Profile, Service Provider Profile and Flex Commodity Profile.


If a location has different capacities for various modes, service providers and flex commodities, then a location capacity group needs to be defined. This group allows you to have more then one location capacity and thus activity calendar for a location. This page is accessed via Warehouse Flow Management > Location Capacity Rule Management > Location Capacity Group.

Enter a Location Capacity Group ID to uniquely identify the capacity group.

Enter a Location Capacity Group Name to name the location group.

Select the Domain Name in which you want to create the location capacity group. Only domains to which you have access privileges display.

Location Capacity Group Detail

The Location Capacity Group Detail grid allows for multiple capacities based on Mode Profile, Service Provider Profile and Flex Commodity Profile IDs. You cannot re-use a unique location capacity more then once in an individual location capacity group. However, multiple location capacities are allowed for one group profile. The system uses the specific location capacity when triggered from inside the location group.

Select a Perspective from the drop-down list if the location capacity differentiates from buy or sell shipments.

For example, a location may be able to accept fewer shipments from rail carriers than truck carriers during a certain season. By allowing multiple capacities at a location within a particular group, OTM can set up individual capacities at a location for rail and truck load shipments.

Another example is when a particular service provider has a different capacity then the normal capacity. One service provider may always have product loaded floor to ceiling compared to it normally being palletized. If the location had fork lifts to receive the palletized truck load, the weight constraints would be different compared to manually unloading the shipment piece by piece.

Finally, a location can set different capacities for different flex commodities. For example, the plant may have a larger capacity to accept oil into its location then it does for natural gas.
