Symptoms

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
Item: 345-0503-000
Org: 12
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.

STEPS
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.
