Symptoms

While using meters as the unit of measure for length, width and height, cubing logic fails to handle cubes with decimals extending beyond 2 digits after decimal point and thus generating higher volume pick label that the box cannot handle.

Steps to Recreate:

  1. Create multiple distros as follows
    DISTRO: 103197: QTY: 2  ITEM: 695866000000
    DISTRO: 103198: QTY: 3  ITEM: 704133000000
    DISTRO: 103199: QTY: 2  ITEM: 704135000000
    DISTRO: 103200: QTY: 17 ITEM: 696202000000
    DISTRO: 103201: QTY: 12 ITEM: 704133000000
    DISTRO: 103202: QTY: 7  ITEM: 704133000000
  2. The container length, container width and container height in CONT_TYPE should be 0.54, 0.34 and 0.34 respectively.
  3. Assign U pick to the items
  4. Run distribution
  5. Check what the system generated in the table pick_directive, a label that has several items and a total cube of items has the cube of the box.
  6. Sum cube of PICK_DIRECTIVE table for one of the unit pick label is exceeding the cube in CONT_TYPE table which is 0.54 x 0.34 x 0.34 = 0.62424.
