Dead Combinations that have historical values in the past is Forecasted. (Doc ID 2239893.1)

Last updated on MARCH 02, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Demantra Demand Management - Version 12.2.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 Demantra Override column clearing

We have dead combinations in Demantra where an override has been entered. The Demantra engine has since been run and because of the override existing that dead address item is being included in certain proportions of the future forecast.
The real issue resides on updating forecast in a higher aggregation level for open future buckets, only Forecast System Status: Good for Forecast, Young Address and Zero Forecast.

"Dead Addresses" have a manual override made before the combination becomes Dead Address, which now we cannot zero out anymore.

The override were made to a combination which was active previously , however eventually that combination is dead combination now and still forecasting which is affecting the forecast accuracy.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Enter override
2. Time period passes
3. Run Engine
4. Forecast for dead combinations also
