When  a Pack Item is sold at the point-of-sale (POS), in Retail Merchandising System (RMS) the Stock on Hand (SOH) for component item goes down and SOH for pack item remains same.  In Store Inventory Management (SIM), however, SOH for Pack Item goes down and SOH for component items remains the same.  This is creates a SOH imbalance between RMS and SIM.  What is the reason for this behavior?


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Create a Pack Item A.

Consider Pack Item A, SOH in RMS and SIM is 0

2. Create a Component Item B for Pack A.

(A=10 units of B), SOH in RMS and SIM is 20.

3. Sell 1 unit of Item A in point-of-sale application.

4. Extract the corresponding POSU file in RMS and SIM.

Comparison of SOH in SIM/RMS:   SOH in RMS:  A=0, B=10.    SOH in SIM: A=-1, B=20
