How Is Allocation Affected If 'Include Inventory Min/Max' Fields Are Checked On The Quantity Limits Screen? (Doc ID 857412.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 05, 2020

Oracle Retail Allocation - Version 10.0.18 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A store has Stock On Hand (SOH) lesser than a supplier pack size (but greater than zero) and on the Quantity Limits screen while creating the allocation, the Include Inventory Min/Max fields are checked. When the Max value in such a scenario is specified to be equal to the supplier pack size (or a value such that Max Quantity - SOH is less than the supp pack size), why is no quantity allocated to the store?

The test case is described through the following steps :

  1. Create a staple item (Supp pack size = 24) and associate it with two stores, such that Store 1 has SOH of say, 12 and Store 2 has SOH = '0'.
  2. Create a purchase order for the item.
  3. Create an allocation against the PO for both the stores.
  4. Go to the Quantity Limits screen.
  5. Specify the Min and Max quantity as 24 for Store 1 and 24, 48 for Store 2.
  6. Calculate.
  7. Store 2 is allocated 24 units, while Store 1 is not allocated any units.
