Last updated on FEBRUARY 23, 2018

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

on an instance with VCP Patch 11782731 applied:

The EDD constrained plan (WITHOUT DETAILED SCHEDULING) is suggesting planned orders to fulfill transient Safety Stock even though scheduled receipts are available to meet the safety stock quantity. This is causing a high PAB.  We tried to manually create the below profiles but it did not resolve the issue.

MSC: Make Safety Stock Transient = Y
MSC: Ignore Safety Stock calculation inside Time Fence = Y

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run the EDD Constrained Plan (without detailed scheduling)
2. Review the Horizontal Plan, note the issue mentioned above.
