Summary

Unable to create a fashion allocation using size profile as a constraint. When allocating at the style/color level, the system will fill the demand with the selected available inventory when all sizes are not abundant. The system will allocate sizes above and beyond the item/location store size profile data, as this data is applied as a guide instead of a constraint. Without applying store size profile as a constraint, the results are likely to contribute to markdown liabilities.


Description


If a Retailer has store specific size curves and does not send all sizes to of an item to all stores. To ensure that certain sizes do not end up getting allocated to the wrong stores, The Retailer sets the size profile ratio for those sizes as zero for those locations. However, since the current application logic treats the size profile ratio as a guide and not a constraint while allocating items, such sizes end up getting allocated to the locations with zero size ratios in cases of constrained inventory.

This Enhancement Request (ER) is more about preventing size substitution; they don’t want the system to send sizes above and beyond the size profile data of the store in order to meet its style/color demand.
