Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

12.1.3.8 in Production


PROBLEM
-------------
Client has upgraded from 12.1.1 to 12.1.3.8.

Since upgrading to 12.1.3.8 they see the plan recommends planned orders for safety stock demand too early (on Plan Start date).
The current On Hand Balance for these items is pegged to the Planned order demand for approximately 5 to 6 months without touching the Non-Transient safety stock balance.
Also, the lead times to obtain these parts is far less than the lead time the plan is providing on the planned orders.


STEPS
--------
Launch classic constrained plan.
View output.

BUSINESS IMPACT
----------------------
This is causing a dollar impact as excess inventory is being planned.
