Temperature Control On Equipment Compartment Is Not Taken Into Account (Doc ID 578602.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 08, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Operational Planning - Version: 5.5
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

OTM selects the Equipment Group purely on cost effectiveness, even if the Temperature Control on the Equipment doesn't match.

For example:

An Equipment Group has a 2-25C Temperature Control Compartment and is assigned to a 2-25C Rate
Offering. The Rate Record belonging to this Rate Offering has a Shipment Cost of 50 EUR.

Another Equipment Group has a 2-8C Temperature Control Compartment and is assigned to a 2-8C Rate
Offering. The Rate Record belonging to this Rate Offering has a Shipment Cost of 50 EUR as well.

Yet another Equipment Group with a 2-25C Temperature Control Compartment, a -100-100C Temperature Control Compartment and a 2-8C Temperature Control Compartment are assigned to a Rate Offering. The Rate Record belonging to this Rate Offering has a Shipment Cost of 999 EUR.

Create 3 Order Releases all with Flex Commodity Qualifier COMMOD and one with Commodity Code 2-8C, one with 2-25C, and one with -100-100C.

If all of them are planned together via Bulk Plan, the planning result is that all go on the Equipment Group with the 2-8C Equipment Group, because it is cheaper, despite it doesn't meet the specification of two of the order releases.

When putting them as a constraint on the order releases they do plan on it, so in principle, it would work.
