Replenishment Calculates Net Inventory Incorrectly When SOH Is Negative and a Substitute Item Is Involved (Doc ID 2094404.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 27, 2019

Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 14.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


For a warehouse to store replenishment, net inventory calculation is incorrect if a substitute item is involved and either of the master or substitute item has negative stock on hand (SOH). This affects the recommended order quantity (ROQ) for the item.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Set up a master item on warehouse to store replenishment.
  2. Ensure that SOH for either of the master or substitute item is negative.  [Example: SOH for master item = -6, SOH for substitute item = 8]
  3. Run replenishment batches and verify net inventory calculation.
  4. Note that net inventory is calculating incorrectly as (In transit + Tsf expected + 2 (sum of SOH for master item and substitute item). Negative SOH should be considered as 0 in the calculation.
