Oracle Retail Replenishment Optimization - Version 14.1.2 and later
Oracle Retail Analytic Parameter Calculator - RO - Version 13.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After running the Oracle Retail Analytic Parameter Calculator for Replenishment Optimization (APC-RO), a small percentage (in the example less than 2% of the total item/loc records per scenario) of records in the simulation output table RO_OUT_STORE_ITEM_STATS contain null value for ITEM_WOS and other columns. There no null values in AGGREGATE_SIM_RESULTS, RO_INVENTORY, and RO_ORDER tables.

How do APC-RO and RO handle the NULL values? Should they be removed from the APC-RO output tables before being exported to RO?
