Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In a VCP 12.2.4.1 Instance:
Launch an ECC constrained plan, that uses decision rules.

There is an assignment set attached to the plan, that uses a sourcing rule with the following criteria:
Local, for org code TST:M1.
The rank 1 shipping org is 'Transfer From' org code TST:M2.
This sourcing rule is assigned to 'Item-Instance-Organization' for item AS18947.

This plan honors only Rank 1 in the souring rule.
Irrespective of demand and supply constraints, the plan always honors rank 1 in the sourcing rule.  Whereas the onhand in the other organizations are not considered, even if the demand has been replenished lately.

--- Business impact ---
The excess inventory in the other inventory organizations are not considered leading to excess inventory in the supply chain.
