Standard Allocation Allocating More Than Expected Quantity When Holdback Quantity Is Set (Doc ID 2250011.1)

Last updated on APRIL 07, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Allocation - Version 15.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Standard Allocation seems to allocate more than the expected quantity  (Available Quantity - Holdback Quantity).  Method used is exact and the final allocated quantity seems to ignore the hold-back quantity and just allocate whatever is calculated by the calculation engine.

Steps to recreate the issue
--------------------------------
1. Create Standard allocation using a simple pack.
2. Set the available quantity to 111 and put hold-back quantity  to 92.  Therefore the maximum it can allocate is 19 packs.
3. Ensure that the need is more than 19 packs.  Need is 25 packs.
4. Click calculate and see the final allocated quantity is 25.  But the available quantity after hold-back quantity is only 19.
