Need Is Incorrectly Calculated When Using an Item List Containing Parent Items as Level in the User Selection

(Doc ID 2020254.1)

Last updated on JULY 03, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Allocation - Version to 13.3.1 [Release 13.3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Problem Description

When allocating against an Item List that contains Parents Items as Level in the User Selection, the need is incorrectly calculated. It appears as if the need is being determined by pulling the Style with the maximum need for a given week, by store, and summing those values up to determine a total need by store. The calculation should be pulling demand for all parents on the item list, by End of Week (EOW) date/store combination, and summing those to a total store level to determine the need.

Steps to Recreate:

1. Create an Item List in RMS containing multiple Styles/Parent Items
2. Create a new What If allocation
3. Enter Release Date
4. Enter Locations
5. Enter Rules, use multiple weeks, and the Item List from Step 1 as level in the User Selection
6. Calculate
7. Note that the demand by store is incorrect
