Symptoms


Multiple Orders are planned together in one Bulk Plan. Some or all of these orders are too large for a single Equipment/Shipment and therefore require splitting. The partial leftovers from these splits, are small enough that they could be combined into a single shipment. However, OTM is leaving these partials as separate shipments, therefore having a more costly solution.

To illustrate an example:

Equipment has capacity of 1000 LB
Order 1 - 1500 LB
Order 2 - 500 LB

Order 1 requires to be split as it is too large for one shipment and will have a split shipment with 500 LB. That remainder could be combined with the other order to make a consolidated shipment. However, instead, the planning results in 2 shipments for the first order and another for the second.
