Last updated on DECEMBER 28, 2012

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Operational Planning - Version 6.2.3 to 6.2.7 [Release 6.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Priority bundling not grouping orders into shipments with highest priority.

For example, with orders of following priority:

3 high priority orders
4 medium priority orders
3 low priority orders

Where equipment capacity is 4 orders, the following shipments are expected:

Shipment 1: 3 high orders, 1 medium order
Shipment 2: 3 medium orders, 1 low order
Shipment 3: 2 low orders

Instead the following shipments are seen:

Shipment 1: all high orders
Shipment 2: all medium orders
Shipment 3: all low orders

Steps to replicate:

1. Log into OTM

2. Created 10 SR's as indicated 3 with High priority, 4 with Medium and 3
with low and the first three (1-3)are High, the second set of ( 4-7) are
Medium, and the last set of 3 (8-10) are low
with ID's from xxxxxxx-1 to xxxxxxx-10

3. Have modified the Parameters set  to reflect the settings the
client has

4. Bulk planned it with modified parameters set and used the MAXIMUM VOLUME PER BUNDLE = 0
AND MAXIMUM WEIGHT PER BUNDLE = 0
and I got the following results :

3 shipments :

Shipment1. with OR 3,4,5, and6 that is one High and three Medium
Shipment 2 with OR 2, 1, and 7 that is 2 high and one medium
Shipment 3 with 8,9,and 10 that is 3 low

If I to change the settings to what the client has where
MAXIMUM VOLUME PER BUNDLE = 50,000
MAXIMUM WEIGHT PER BUNDLE = 9999999

and bulk plan it again it will plan 3 shipments

1st one contains all the Highs (3), 2nd contains all the Mediums(4), and 3rd
contains all the Lows (3)
