Calculation Is Incorrect When Using Hold Back Quantity Without "Enforce Supply Chain" Flag (Doc ID 2083114.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 09, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Allocation - Version 14.1 to 14.1.2 [Release 14.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

If the user is allocating an item from multiple sources (eg. PO with 3 virtual warehouses), with the "Enforce Supply Chain" flag deselected and inserts a specific "Hold Back Quantity" for each virtual warehouse, the calculated quantities are wrong.

For each virtual warehouse the units selected as "Hold Back" couldn't be used to allocate.

Steps to recreate
1) Create a Standard Allocation for one item with a PO (with multiple virtual warehouses as source)
2) add multiple locations
3) select the demand source
4) insert an hold back quantity for each virtual warehouse in the review section
5) Calculate and check the Final Allocated quantities

Example:
Allocate a PO (20 units for VWH1, 20 units for VWH2 and 20 units for VWH3)
Set Hold Back Quantity for each of the 3 VWH as 5 units
Expected Result - After calculation the Final Allocated Quantity for each VWH should be 15
Actual Result - After calculation the Final Allocated Quantity VW1 is 20, VWH2 is 5 and VWH3 is 20.
