Symptoms

Find that for wip jobs created using API with no routing, after creating the job, the operations and the scheduled resources, now when wip mass load runs again with update option and with a new start date, system should forward schedule the operations and resources correspondingly.
The reason behind this issue is: There is no routing created for the item. As WIP operations/scheduled resources are loaded through API, we are not creating the Routing for the item.

Scheduling the job using the forms, it populates correctly the completion date taking into account the operations and the resources.



The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
Customer is running WIP MASS LOAD with options:

ALLOW_EXPLOSION = Y (If set to N, must provide requirements manually; any values other than N or n are assumed to be Y.)
LOAD_TYPE: 3 Update Standard or Non-Standard Discrete Job
SCHEDULING_METHOD: 1 (Routing-Based) - if Routing-Based, all operation and resource dates set to start date.
STATUS_TYPE: 1 (Unreleased)

Discrete Job is created through standard wip mass load program. WIP operations and scheduled resources are loaded/assigned to the discrete job through standard API. Now when wip mass load runs again with update option and with a new start date, system should populate the job completion date which is not happening.
There is no routing created for the item. As WIP operations/scheduled resources are loaded through API, we are not creating the Routing for the item.

Scheduling method in the wip interface has 3 options: Routing, Manual, Lead time.
We are not using lead time option, as we don't have a stadard lead time.
We are not using manual option, as we need the system to look at scheduled resources assigned to the discrete job and schedule the job.
Routing option is not working as explained above.
