End Item Substitution Gives Not Working With Multiple Substitution Effective Dates

(Doc ID 1919920.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 12.1.3 version, Memory Based Planner

when defining a substitution chain, the forecast demand for the lower item is passed onto the higher items in an erratic manner.
- planned orders are created on the 'not highest level item' while profile states highest level item should be used
- safety stock on highest level item is not planned (zero) while item settings are correct (set to mrp planned safety stock)

engine should follow the chain up to the highest level item
