Users are on 12.2.4 and have applied VCP Cum Patch 220.127.116.11 - 19549533 - Using 64 bit MBP with version MSONWA64.ppc 120.28.12020000.13.1220401.2 - Using 64 bit snapshot version MSCNPA64.ppc 120.11.12020000.12 - Users are testing ASCP inline forecast consumption specifically when using Demand Class. Key profiles
MSC: Consume forecast with no demand class = After Consuming Demand Class Specific Forecast.
MSC: Consume forecasts using Internal Sales Orders = Yes
They are seeing issues where sales orders with no demand class are consuming forecasts with a demand class. Example data
They have 24 sales orders from order number 65030945 through 65030966 for a particular item/org combination. One two sales order have a demand class at all and that demand class = RACDEMCLS
When they run the ASCP plan and consume the Demantra local forecast during the plan run and check consumption afterwards in the ASCP workbench, users see all 24 sales order lines have consumed forecast with demand class = RACDEMCLS - It should be noted they are publishing the Demantra local forecast at Item Level
Sales Orders without Demand Class should not consume Forecast that has Demand Class.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Add Demand Class to Demantra Local Forecast
2. Publish the Demantra forecast to ASCP via workflow
3. Setup some sales orders with demand class and some without in EBS source
4. Run data collections to pick up the sales orders
5. Setup ASCP plan to run forecast inline consumption with Demantra local forecast attached
6. Check forecast consumption and see all sales orders including those with out demand class consuming forecasts with demand class
