ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
IO is not generating Safety Stock for a specific Item

There is one specific item in a model for which IO is not generating safety stock. (there are also other items, but we want to focus first in 1 item, the others could be the same issue)

We use legacy collections and we receive the consensus forecast from Demantra.

We have already double checked all the parameters needed for the Safety Stock to be generated via legacy collections:
- Items.dat file: MRP Safety Stock Code = configured = 2
- Items.dat file: MRP Safety Stock Percent = configured = 10
- Shippment_Method.dat and Items.dat: Lead Times properly configure: Intransit Time and Preprocessing Lead Times

As context:

The model is: 1 Sales Center - 1 item where we have demand from: Consensus forecast

This Sales Center (organization) asks for a distribution center (organization) to supply this item, and then the distribution center asks the manufacturing plant to provide this item. Then the plant manufactures this item.
