ECC Constrained Plan Is Scheduling Planned Orders On the Plan Horizon/End Date For Some Item/Organization Combinations

(Doc ID 2315016.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 06, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version, Constrained Planning in Test

Users are on 12.1.3 and have applied VCP 12.1.3.7 Patch 1383326 - While running an ECC Classic Constrained plan, the Material Available Date for a number of items is right at the Plan End Date/horizon which is AUG-2020. This does not seem correct considering the lead times for the items are short. Example data:

Item = 7U418-1
Org = TSA:BU1
Pre Processing Lead Time = 2
Fixed Lead Time = 30

There is a sales order for the above item qty = 1 due 23-OCT-2017. When users check the available date for the planned order for supply, it shows 09-AUG-2020 which is the plan horizon. It only takes 32 working days to build this assembly

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
The Material Available Date should be much sooner than what is showing in the ASCP Workbench for the item/org combinations in question

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run the ECC Classic Constrained plan.
2. Review supply demand in the ASCP workbench
3. Find some items the supply planned orders are pushed to plan horizon 09-AUG-2020
