Symptoms

Users are seeing planned order start and completion dates later than expected vs demand on items which are ordered via internal requisitions/internal sales orders with long intransit times. This is best explained with an example:

Org level sourcing rule is setup as follows for Org = JRW:

1. Org level sourcing rule is setup as follows for Org = JRW:
Transfer From Org = NRW - Allocation = 100% - Rank = 1 - Intransit Time = 34 days. This is using a 24x7 calendar for intransit time

2. The above is assigned to the assignment set attached to the ASCP plan for item = 5773A004AA

3. The lead times other than intransit time for this item are as follows in org = JRW:
Preprocessing = 1
Processing = 0
Postprocessing = 1

4. The planning time fence for the plan run for this item shows 27-MAY-2008 (So PTF is set to 9 or 10 days)

5. When looking at Supply Demand for item = 5773A004AA in Org = JRW we see the following:

A. Firm Intransit shipment due 26-MAY-2008 (from an internal requisition)

B. Planned order due 01-JUL-2008 - This planned order is pegged to earlier demand in May but the Suggested Start Date = 26-MAY-2008 which is the same date to receive the earlier intransit shipment

C. If we add the 34 days of intransit we do get the 01-JUL-2008 due date which matches when adding all the leadtime plus intransit. But the question is why is this order starting on 26-MAY-2008 instead of earlier? With a plan run date of 18-MAY-2008 this order could have started on 18-MAY-2008 and been available still outside the planning time fence around Mid June - 2008 so why the delay?



STEPS:
1. Create sourcing rule for an item with transfer from another organization (ie internal requisitions/internal sales orders) with large intransit time. Make sure this item has 9 - 10 day planning time fence setup
2. Run ASCP plan
3. Review results of planned orders in the workbench
