Last updated on JUNE 29, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Rapid Planning - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 12.2.4 version, Planning Engine in TEST:

Users are on 12.2.4 and have applied 12.2.4.1 VCP patching. After users run an RP plan, they are observing that when they have Fixed Days Supply defined for a buy item, it stops honoring the Planning Time Fence (PTF). For item 'SH 201 1603, it has a planning time fence of 10 days but users are seeing planned order on the first day of the plan. If they remove FDS, and rerun the plan, the PTF is honored.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run RP plan with FDS and PTF for an item
2. Plan output does not honor PTF
3. Remove FDS and rerun the RP plan
4. PTF is now honored
