Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version, Memory Based Planner in PROD:

Users are on 12.1.3 and have applied VCP 12.1.3.9.1 Patch 17350769 - using 64 bit linux mbp and 32 bit snapshot - Using MSONWL64.ppc 120.3.12010000.423 from one off patch 19554389. Users are running an unconstrained plan. They are finding an item/organization problem where a lot of firm planned orders are all pegging to excess, a lone wip job with NOT enough qty is the only supply pegging to a sales order, and the balance of the demand for the sales order goes unmet. Example

Item = 1018356
Org = WC:MIL

Sales Order for for qty = -1,354.3 lbs only pegs to a Work order/WIP job qty = 429.1 lbs. No further supply pegs to the sales order even though there are six firm planned orders for 250 lbs each all pegged to excess. Hence qty = 925.2 lbs of demand is not fulfilled even though there are firm planned orders which could satisfy same.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expect the firm planned orders for supply to peg to the sales order demand to fulfill it completely

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run unconstrained ASCP plan
2. Review workbench supply demand
3. Find an item where demand is not being satisfied by supply even though the supply exists
