ACTUAL BEHAVIOR

The Wave Planning program is running 3 Rules Based Planning requests when Parallel Pick Release is not enabled

The Plan Wave functionality seems to be incorrectly defaulting the no.of pick release workers.

Customer has complex Picking Processes & Pick Rules for their business and has decided not to enable the Parallel Pick Release feature in R12.
As the profile “WSH: Number of Pick Release Child Processes” is not setup, the pick release should behave as in 11i where one request allocates all lines on the Move Order.

Now, they are looking at using Wave Planning functionality and ran into below issue where "Plan Wave request is defaulting the no.of pick rel workers to 3 when “WSH: Number of Pick Release Child Processes” is not setup".
They would like to have only one "Rule Based Planning" request submitted if the profile is not setup, similar to Pick Release process.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

As the profile “WSH: Number of Pick Release Child Processes” is not setup,the expectation is that the wave planning should behave the same as the pick release where one request allocates all lines on the Move Order.

STEPS

Steps to reproduce:

Step 1: Open Create Wave form and create the Wave & save it as Wave Template.
Step 2: Press “Launch Concurrently” button to create a wave & add eligible lines.
Step 3: Open Wave Dashboard and search for the Wave Number.
Step 4: Plan the Wave by pressing “Plan Wave” button. Use “Rule Based Planning” method and verify the requests submitted.
 -> Notice that 3 “Wave Planning: Rule Based Planning” requests are submitted to generate Move Order Allocations.
-> The current logic for Wave Planning is considering “WSH: Number of Pick Release Child Processes” profile to decide how many child requests to be submitted. If Parallel Pick Release is not enabled, it’s defaulting to 3 child workers/requests.
