Step quantities in recipes are being calculated incorrectly when using Automatic Step Quantity Calculation (ASQC), that is, when Calculate Step Quantity checkbox on Recipe Details is checked.

Customer has complex setup with some steps having step dependencies and some not having step dependencies. Quantities from one step are being included in the step qty of the next step even when there is no step dependency. For example, quantity of first step (step 230) is being added to the quantity of the second step (step 330) even though step 330 is not dependent on step 230. The step qty of step 330 should be only the qty of ingredients associated with step 330, but the qty of step 230 is being added to that. This should only occur if step 330 has a step dependency on step 230.

Further Details

The ingredients associated to step 230 add up to 93.524, which is the step quantity shown on the Recipe Details form, so this is correct.

If there were a step dependency from step 230 to step 330, this quantity should flow into step 330 and the quantity of the items associated to step 330, 6.17, should be added, resulting in 99.694, which is what is shown on the Recipe Details form. However, there is NO step dependency from 330 back to 230, so the step qty for step 330 should be only 6.17.

Step 430 has no step dependencies, and no step/material associations, and yet on Recipe Details it shows a qty of 99.694, the same as step 330. This should actually be zero.

Step 530 has dependencies on 230, 330, and 430, and its step qty is indeed the sum of the step qty's of those three steps.
