Applies to:

Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning - Version 12.1.2 to 12.1.3.7 [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

For an end-item customer has the following sourcing Setup:

Rank1 - Transfer From Internal Org

Rank2 - Buy from an external vendor.

 In the source Org, there are existing supplies (purchase orders).

When the plan is run with end item substitution disabled, the planning is fine.

The sourcing rules are respected and the orders from the source org are pegged to the demands in destination org.

But when end item substitution is enabled, ASCP is recommending to cancel all the existing purchase orders and create fresh planned orders to buy the material from an external vendor.
