Symptoms

On 11.5.10.2 in Production (Engine/UI RUP #27)

Find that in 'some' cases, the 100% sourcing rule does not work and the customer is using 99%/1% workaround sourcing rules to get the material to peg properly.

Asked customer the following questions:
(Q 1) What happens when the sourcing rule for this item 1475M46P01 is set to 100% AD1:SB2 .
(A 1) To best be able to answer this question, please tell me what the source is for the 0%. There are different answers to this question if the source is AD1:SB1 and there are orders againstthem, vs a straight OV source.

- If the 0% is AD1:SB1, and there are orders against SB1,
then the same situation would be happening in the SB1 as is shown here in the SB2 org. The planned orders will not work correctly.
- If the 0% is OV, and there are orders against that source,
there isn't any affect to us because we are not working the flow-down to the casting.

(Q 2) Is this happening to all the items in this org or only certain items? In other words, how
many 99/1% sourcing rules do you have?
(A 2) We have several parts that are currently using the work-around 99/1 sourcing rule, both for SB1 and for SB2. It is happening across all orgs that have a 100/0 set-up as shown on the original attachment, not just the orgs in my example.

MIL does not have the 99%/1% sourcing rule and no pegging is shown, nor are the planned orders correct. LMS is using the workaround and is getting the expected results.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Expect to be able to use 100% sourcing rule and receive correct pegging.

STEPS
The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
1. Create a 100% sourcing rule and notice that no pegging is created for some items in some organizations.
2. As a workaround, create a 99%/1% split sourcing rule for those items in those organizations.
