Users are on ASCP Engine/UI CU5 patching. They run an EDD Constrained ASCP plan. However, ASCP is not aggregating planned order quantity based on the Fixed Days Supply item attribute.
Plan id: 42
Fixed Days Supply attribute value: 7
Example planned order data:
Planned order 7380 10/1/2009 9:59
Planned order 120 10/5/2009 23:59
Planned order 360 10/6/2009 23:59
Planned order 300 10/7/2009 23:59
Planned order 360 10/7/2009 23:59
Planned order 420 10/9/2009 23:59
Planned order 1380 10/16/2009 23:59
User has tested with profile option MSC: Split Planned Orders for Scheduling Flexibility = No (was yes) and this does show a much better plan output where the fixed days supply is honored, not
completely but much better as the following shows:
Planned order 20220 10/4/2009 16:56
Planned order 300 10/9/2009 23:59
Planned order 1380 10/12/2009 23:59
Planned order 2040 10/23/2009 23:59
Planned order 1680 11/13/2009 23:59
Planned order 2220 11/27/2009 23:59
Planned order 120 12/11/2009 23:59
Planned order 1140 12/11/2009 23:59
But, users can not set the profile to No because of the scheduling flexibility that they require in the plan. If they set it to No, the supply distribution is not usable by shop floor. So, the expectation is that the Fixed Days Supply be respected even when this profile is set to Yes. There should be flexibility to use Fixed Days supply with or without this profile.
1. Setup items with Fixed Days Supply = 7
2. Run EDD Constrained Plan
3. Note that Fixed Days Supply does not appear to be honored
4. It's honored much better when profile MSC: Split Planned Orders for Scheduling Flexibility = No but is still not completely honoring it.
