18C - Change in role of Release Planning Recommendations ESS in Back-to-Back supply creation
A significant change has been introduced in the Back-to-Back Supply Creation and Fulfillment flow in release 18C. The old and new behaviors are summarized below.
Old behavior (till release 18B) - After a Back-to-Back sales order line is scheduled, users have to run (either manually or by setting up a schedule) the Planning ESS job Release Planning Recommendations to initiate supply creation.
New Behavior (from 18C onwards) – After a Back-to-Back sales order line is scheduled, users do not have to run (or schedule) the Release Planning Recommendations ESS job to create Back-to-Back supply. Supply Chain Orchestration (SCO) will directly read Global Order Promising (GOP) promising data/supply recommendations for a scheduled order fulfillment line and automatically initiate supply creation. This change will apply to Configure-to-Order and Back-to-Back Contract Manufacturing flows as well.
