Overview

This new mechanism allow Symphony to generate recommendations to move stock between stores (move stock from store ‘A’ where inventory is not needed to store ‘B’ where inventory is needed).
Using this feature we can identify stock which can be transferred out from stores as well as Identify as list of stores which need the stock to be transferred to.
This is done be defining a clusters of stores to each SKU we wish to use this feature. that way stock can be transferred from stores which are in that cluster.

This feature is loaded by a new batch file interface that allow the user to upload (insert/update) IST Policies into Symphony database (thru L&R)

IST_POLICIES<Postfix>.[txt | csv]ISTPoliciesInterface

In order to manage Symphony IST process, we will add the following properties:
1. IST Cluster – this property will indicate the store cluster for this SL/SKU (for “IST Allocation” process)
2. IST State – this property will indicate whether this SL/SKU can donate stock thru “IST Allocation”, and if so, then what portion of the inventory is eligible for allocation thru “IST Allocation”.
These properties will be stored on SL/SKU level.
