Symptoms

On OTM version 6.2.3 the Shipment cost is not being equally split between the orders on the Shipment when Allocation is carried out.

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Each stop incurs a different cost, after Allocation this cost is being allocated to the Order that incured that cost.  The total Shipment cost is not divided by the number of Orders.


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
.
1 - Log on to an OTM 6.2.3 system.

2 - Navigate to: Shipment Management > Power Data > Geography > Regions.

3 - Create the following:

ABC_1 containing location LJS_ORACLE_READING
ABC_2 containing location LJS_ORACLE_BRISTOL
ABC_3 containing location LJS_ORACLE_BIRMINGHAM

4 - Navigate to: Configuration and Administration > Process Management > Formulate Regions.

5 - Navigate to: Contract and Rate Management > Rate Offering > Create the following:

ID: ABC

6 - From the Rate Offering created the following Rate Record:

ID: AB
From: Country GBR
To: Country GBR
Added three costs each by Stop Region:
50 USD for Region 1
100 USD for Region 2
150 USD for Region 3

7 - Create 3 Orders:
ABC_1 (London to Reading)
ABC_2 (London to Bristol)
ABC_3 (London to Birmingham)

Note: Restricted each to use Rate Offering ABC.

8 - Bulk Planned the order onto Shipment ID: 01565.

9 - The financials tab contains:
Base Cost: 150 USD
Base Cost: 100 USD
Base cost: 50 USD

10 - From the Shipment click on Financials > Allocate Cost.

The cost allocated was 300, the expectation is each Order is allocated 100 USD, so 1/3rd of the total cost.

The cost was allocated as follows:

ABC_1 50.00 USD.
ABC_2 100.00 USD
ABC_3 150.00 USD
