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

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning - Version 12.2.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On :  12.2.6 version, Memory Based Planner

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

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
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).

STEPS
-----------------------
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.

BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
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.
