Container Optimization Results In Ask OTM Do Not Show User Preferences UOM Values (Doc ID 1400590.1)

Last updated on MAY 06, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Management - Version 6.2.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When using the Container Optimization option on the Bottom Ask OTM Section, the results seem to be shown in LBs and CUFT instead of KG and CUMTR to match the User Preferences.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

User Preference: SECOND
Contains the following:
Volume Cubic Meters (CUMTR)
Weight Kilograms (KG)

Equipment: 28FT DRY VAN which has an Effective Weight of 13066.77 KG and
Effective Volume of 58.62 CUMTR

To Replicate:

1. Log into OTM.
2. Click on "Container Optimization" in the "Ask OTM" Section.
3. Enter the following:
Bulk: Checked/Selected
Parameter Set ID: CUSTOM
Equpiment Group Profile ID: DRY28
4. Click Next.
5. Enter the following on Line 1:
ID: 1
Weight (KG): 10000
Voume (CUMTR): 10
6. Click Optimize.
7. Note in the Solutoin Comparison, it shows 7953.8 Under the Remaining Weight(KG) and 1716.9 under the Volume Remaining (CUMTR).
8. Since the Max Weight for the 28FT Dry Van is 13066.77, I'm not sure how there can be 7953.8 KG Remaining. Also, since the Max Volume is 58.62 CUMTR, a remaining of 1716.9 does not make sense. It seems the results are showing in LBS and CUFT despite the headings on the results screen.
