Existing Preference 2 Firm Planned Order Dependent Components Are Not Used & New Planed Orders Are Created For Preference 1 BOM Components Instead (Doc ID 2420849.1)

Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 12.2.4 version, Constrained Planning in PROD

Users are on 12.2.4 and have applied patching. They have applied one off patch 27137192 which gave them MSONWL64.ppc 120.15.12020000.58.1220402.6 - They are using a beta exe MSONWL64.exe from bug 27539038 with date 12-JUN-2018

Users are running an EDD Constrained without detailed scheduling plan. They are firming some priority 2 component planned orders for OPM end assemblies, but ASCP does not seem to see these firm planned orders and uses Priority 1 recipe with different component instead. Example data:

One of the sources for Fin Good item = FG Item 41989-08 in Org = MAS:IC1 is Org = MAS:SHP. This is also a make item in this Org SHP and there are 4 different priority recipes

Priority 1 has Component 133373-13
Priority 2 has Component 51362-02
Priority 3 has Component 50741-01
Priority 9 has Component 133372-10

Users created many firm planned orders qty = 17000 for Priority 2 component = 51362-02 in Org MAS:SHP. They even created an Internal Req (not firm) in MAS:SHP to source the item from MAS:DM1. However when ASCP creates planned orders for the end item = 41989-08 it is sourcing from Org MAS:SHP but it is using Priority 1 recipe with component = 133373-13 and creating new planned orders for same instead of using the firm planned order supplies for Priority 2 recipe with component = 51362-02. It pegs all the firm planned orders for component - 51362-02 to excess. It also recommends cancelling the IR the for the item in Org MAS:SHP to get material from Org MAS:DM1

They have set the following profiles:

MSO: Net All Firm Supplies Before Creating Planned Order = All Supply Types,
MSO: Use Existing Supplies in Alternate BOM/Subs. Comp = Use supplies of both substitute components and supplies of components in alternate bills of material,
MSO: Order Modifier Max Searching Depth = 10

Expected ASCP to use the firm planned orders for the Priority 2 component = 51362-02 in Org MAS:SHP

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create firm planned orders for Priority 2 recipe component = 51362-02 in Org MAS:SHP
2. Run EDD Constrained without detailed scheduling plan
3. Review supply demand in ASCP workbench
4. Find the firm planned component orders are pegged to excess and priority 1 recipe component planned instead
