ISSUE Clarification
===============
Scenario #1 – creating a new item via worksheet NPI process:
 The root cause of the problem in this scenario is that the newly created combination is being treated as a young combination, and thus simulation is not running on it. Development team is investigating it.



Scenario #2 – Importing new item, and applying pseudo history on it – not getting simulation results for this item.
  We have seen that after running the import workflow the new item (combination) was created in mdp_matrix with a prediction_status = 98 – this is due to the fact that the only data for it was 1 historical row with 0 history.
  We have seen that after applying pseudo_history to it, sales_data has the relevant (historical) rows, and prediction_status was changed to 1.
  We have found that the engine is indeed creating a valid simulation results to the new item, and the simulation results are available in the simulation table (all rows are future rows).
  The simulation results are not available to the user in the UI.


STEPS
====
Scenario #1
1. Create a new item via worksheet NPI process
2. Run a simulation on it
3. No forecast is getting generated

Scenario #2
1. Import new item
2. Run a simulation on it
3. Simulation is getting created but the results are not available to the worksheets
