Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 12.2.5 version, Memory Based Planner

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Manually selected alternate routing not respected

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Manually selected routing should be respected by the plan run

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1.Create an ASCP plan with following options

The plan is EDD constrained without detailed scheduling
Overwrite flag in plan option is st to 'None'

Profile option MSO: Enable Decision Rules = yes but decision rules are not checked in the plan. (alternate routing is not checked).

Alternate routing is not checked deliberately because this works in an unconstrained plan as per note Firm Planned Order In ASCP Plan Using Alternate Routing Is Not Saved Correctly (Doc ID 1511888.1).
Customer expects this to work for an constrained plan even if alternate routing is not checked in plan options -> decision rules because they would like to avoid automatic use of alternates by the system and allow only manual selection.

2. Launch ASCP constrained plan.
3. Firm planned order for an item and select an alternate routing (which uses a different resource). Save
4 Launch the plan again
5. Review resource requirements for the firm planned order.
6. No resource requirement is calculated for the alternate resource
