Tare Weight Unit Of Measure Not Taken Into Account When Re-Generating Ship Units.
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 08, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Transportation Management - Version: 6.2.0 to 6.2.3 - Release: 6.2 to 6.2
Information in this document applies to any platform.
For example is the Tare Weight is entered as 50 KG but the system default UOM for weight is LB then when the Ship Unit is recreated 50 LB will be used in place of 50 KG.
Expect the Tare weight to be used with the UOM it was created with.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1 - Check the UOM base values by running the following SQL:
SELECT * FROM UOM WHERE IS_STORAGE_DEFAULT ='Y'
CURRENCY USD USD
2 - Build an XML file to create the Item where metrics are in KG, CM and CUMTR, not the default UOMs of the system.
3 - Upload the item file, the following is created:
Ship Unit: 1234
Note the Tare Weight is 41.36KG.
4 - Create an XML file to use the Item and Packaged Item and upload it into OTM.
5 - The Order Release isi created.
6 - Expected Values in KG:
Gross Weight = 540.8 KG (499.54 + Tare Weight 41.360 KG)
Net Weight = 499.54 KG (= 40 x 12.486 KG)
Converted to LB:
Gross Weight: 1192.61 LB
Net Weight 1101.43 LB
7 - Navigate to the Order Release, Ship Unit tab and the above weights are shown in LB.
8 - Click on Actions > Change Order > Generate Ship Units.
9 - The UI will display the following message:
Ship Units for Order Release 1234 have been successfully generated.
10 - Return to the Order Release, click Edit and go to the Ship Unit tab.
11 - In LB the UI now shows:
Total Gross Weight: 1142.79 LB
Net Weight per Ship Unit: 1101.43 LB
12 - The Total Gross weight has changed, it should have remained the same. The Tare Weight being used should have been the tare figure in KG but OTM used the tare figure in LBs.
