EDD Classic Constrained Optimization Plan Doesn't Trigger Optimize Feature (Doc ID 2219184.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 25, 2019

Information in this document applies to any platform.

EDD Classic constrained optimization plan doesn't trigger optimize feature. Plan creates unnecessary Planned orders instead of using existing On hand qty.

Customer expects to consume from substitute item D22 the remaining 10 qty. From total demand of 160 (item AA) - 50 (D12) - 100(D22) = 10. Either peg the remaining 10 qty to
D22's exiting PO (or generate new planned order for D12).

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Setup a EDD Classic constrained plan with optimize enabled, set maximize inventory turns objective to 1, leave all other objectives and penalty factors to 0;
2. Define a BOM for product AA, including a primary phantom C1 and its substituted phantom C2,  there are a few child components under C1 and C2, and one of the child components is the baseline component under both C1 and C2.
3. Setup a very high standard cost and carrying cost for baseline components.
4. Setup supply&demand and run ASCP
5. ASCP planning result doesn't trigger optimize feature.

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users are unable to plan
baseline item driven phantom component substitution. This is a normal
business scenario for us. There is no workaround for this requirement.
