Last updated on AUGUST 17, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Demand Forecasting - Version 14.0.1.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In Oracle Retail Demand Forecasting (RDF) 14.0.1, making an adjustment to the Adjusted Profile measure will override any previous adjustment.  This happens even when you set the Profile Approval Method to "Do Not Approve".
This behavior causes previous changes to be hidden from the user.


Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Log in to an RDF domain and launch the Profile Administration Workbook.
  2. In the wizard, select a Day-of-Week Final Level profile and click Finish.
  3. In the Profile Parameter worksheet, set the following:
    a. Default Profile Approval = " Approve Use System"
    b. Default Phase Start/End dates = according to your data
    c. Training Window Method = "Use Training Window"
    d. Normal Value = 1
    e. Renormalize = True
    f. System Training Window = a value that conforms with your data
    g. Use Advanced Profile = True
  4. Commit your changes.
  5. Launch the Run Batch Profile Workbook.
  6. Select the Day-of-Week Final Level profile you configured in Profile Administration and click finish to close the workbook.
  7. Launch the Profile Approval Workbook.
  8. In the wizard, select the same Day-of-Week Final Level as in step 6.
    a. Select at least one item.
    b. Select at least one store.
    c. Select some dates where your profile is going to be applied (based on your Phase Start/End dates).
    d. Do not select any additional measures.
  9. In the Final worktab, edit at least one cell in the Adjusted Profile measure for an Item/Store combination.
  10. Click calculate and commit your changes.
  11. Launch the Profile Maintenance Workbook and in the wizard make the same selections you did while launching the Profile Approval workbook.
  12. For the Item/Store combination and the time period you previously edited, set the Profile Approval Method to "Do Not Approve".
  13. Click calculate and commit your changes.
  14. Launch the Run Batch Profile Workbook.
  15. Select the same Day-of-Week Final Level profile as before and click Next.  Click Finish when done.
  16. Launch the Profile Approval Workbook.
  17. In the wizard make the same selections as in step 8.
  18. Inside the workbook, in the final worktab navigate to the Item/Store and time period for which you previously altered the Adjusted Profile.
  19. Note that the client does not show the changes you previously made to this Item/Store. Instead it is equal to the System and Adjusted profile.
