Pull Replenishment Will Create a Second Replenishment Task When the Allocation of the Previous Replenishment Task Fails (Doc ID 2186464.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 25, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Warehouse Management - Version 12.2.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

User may set up Pull Replenishment as below:
1. Subinventory-Large replenishes Subinventory-Middle.
2. Subinventory-Middle replenishes Subinventory-Small.
3. Sales Order picks from Subinventory-Small.

Image of Replenishment and Pick is like below:
Subinventory-Large -> Subinventory-Middle -> Subinventory-Small -> Sales Order

When the pick release of the sales order triggers the replenishment task(Subinventory-Middle -> Subinventory-Small),
but the allocation fails because of some reason,
system will create a second replenishment task(Subinventory-Large -> Subinventory-Middle).

User may thinks that the second replenishment task is not always needed, because there may be kinds of reasons why the allocation fails.
(1) The second replenishment task is needed.
     The allocation fails because of lack of on-hand in Subinventory-Middle, so user needs Subinventory-Large to replenish Subinventory-Middle.

(2) The second replenishment task is NOT needed.
     The allocation fails because of some other reason which is not on-hand related. The on-hand in Subinventory-Middle is enough, so Subinventory-Middle doesn't need replenishment at all.
