Symptoms

On : 12.1.3.9.2 version, Constrained planning in PROD

Users are on 12.1.3 and have applied VCP 12.1.3.9.2 aka R12.SCP_PF.B.Delta.4 - Patch 22706126 - Using 64 bit Linux MBP MSONWL64.ppc 120.3.12010000.484.1210392.13 from one off patch 26513220 applied on 09-OCT-2017. Users are running Classic Constrained plan. Users are on 12.1.3 and have applied VCP 12.1.3.9.2 aka R12.SCP_PF.B.Delta.4 - Patch 22706126 - Using 64 bit Linux MBP MSONWL64.ppc 120.3.12010000.484.1210392.13 from one off patch 26513220 applied on 09-OCT-2017. They are running into an issue where planned orders are generated on the anchor date of the plan pegging to SS when there's plenty of on hand already available. Example data:

Item = RD-FA6013-52 - This is a Fin Good as there are on sales order demands
Org = OTD:BOT
On hand = 1097
SS Hard = 200
Past due demand total = -74. There is no demand on the anchor date of the plan which is 26-OCT-2017. However there are 2 planned orders qty = 100 each total 200 on the anchor date of the plan. PAB = 1233 and SS = 200. Both planned orders peg to SS completely. Why did it not use the On hand to peg to SS??? These 2 planned orders were not needed until the week of 25-DEC-2017

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expect planned orders not to be so early for demand when they are clearly not needed

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run Classic Constrained ASCP plan
2. Review workbench supply demand output
3. Find items with early planned orders pegging to SS when plenty of on hand is available
