Last updated on MARCH 29, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Advanced Supply Chain Planning - Version 11.5.10 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On 11.5.10 in Production:
Running an ECC production plan constrained on resource capacity using four scheduled resources,
two item based and two lot-based. The resources are assigned to the assembly department
and are available 18 hours/day for 6 days/week. Defined and assigned to the same department
an aggregated resource and  assigned this resource in the aggregate
resource flexfield for the two item-based resource.
Plan options using as aggregation levels: Items and Routing
aggregation for daily/weekly buckets, Individual Resource for daily buckets and
Aggregated Resource for Weekly buckets. From Horizontal plan and also from
resource requirement form of the Workbench user is able to see that the system is
not calculating the resource requirement for the Aggregate resource, but it's
still using the unaggregated resources. Tthe resource availability is correctly calculated
for the aggregated resource as sum of the availability of the two resources.


STEPS
1) Create three item-based resources, one of them to be used as aggregated
resource
2) Assign to a department all the resources previously created and populate the
aggregate resource flexfield for the two member resources
3) Create a resource constrained production plan using 19 days and 44 weeks as
planning bucket, using the following aggregation levels:
Days: Items, Individual, Routings
Weeks: Items, Aggregate, Routings


EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Expect to level the demand by item using a constrained production plan using an
aggregated resource.
