Fcexec Batch: Performance Issue When Processing NIL And Large Volumes Of Cost Changes Exist (Doc ID 2847823.1)

When the future cost batch (fcexec) is processing New Item/Location (NIL) cost events it queries the Cost Change tables to determine if the new item/location is also on a future cost change. This happens during the item/location explosion and there is a long running query in the FUTURE_COST_SQL.MERGE_NIL_CC function that looks at COST_SUSP_DETAIL_LOC. However, since it also queries COST_SUSP_SUP_HEAD for dates the result is the query uses the wrong index and ends up querying the entire COST_SUSP_SUP_DETAIL_LOC table using the UK_COST_SUSP_SUP_DETAIL_LOC which lead with COST_CHANGE. For some customers, this table can contain upwards of a 100 million future item/supplier/country/location cost changes detail records spread out across 1000s of cost changes.

This scenario will cause fcexec to run for many hours.
