Ground Schedule Generate Shipment Does Not Follow The Defined Period
Last updated on JULY 09, 2014
Applies to:Oracle Transportation Management - Version: 5.0 to 5.5
This problem can occur on any platform.
When using the action 'Generate Shipments' for a ground schedule, rather than create shipments for the defined period, OTM generates shipments from the Schedule Cutoff Time instead of the specified start date.
You want to generate shipments from 01-Sep-2006 till 15-Sep-2006.
On the screen, you populate a start date of 01-Sep-2006 with a duration time of 15 days.
The algorithm will look at the Schedule Cutoff Time on the schedule (in our example, 01-Aug-2006), if it is populated, this date is used as the start date to create shipments.
So shipment will be created from 01-Aug-2006 till 15-Sep-2006 rather than 01-Sep-2006 till 15-Sep-2005
Expect that OTM generates shipments in the specified time frame/period.
The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, unwanted shipments are created and have to be deleted.
