ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
  We have a handful of items in our unconstrained ASCP plan that show exception messages of type “Demand quantity not satisfied”. What is very odd is that these items show existing purchase orders, and some of them are recommended to be cancelled – it seems that ASCP is artificially creating this “demand not satisfied” situation. Why would it do this?

 These items have pegging set to “End Assembly/Soft Pegging” and when looking at pegging, some records shows “Pegging information has not been calculated for item in this plan”. This may explain why ASCP thinks that demands are not satisfied (if it has not tied supplies to demands), and then the question is why pegging is not getting calculated when it clearly should.
