Applies to:

Oracle Cost Management - Version 11.5.10.2 to 12.0.6 [Release 11.5 to 12]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
Standard Cost Update does not update Frozen Cost if total cost remains the same (e.g. switch the sub-element from one to another with the same rate but the total cost stays the same).

The issue remains after the patches suggested in Note 471282.1 are applied.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Expect Standard cost update to update Frozen cost.

Steps
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Navigation-> Costs-> item Costs
  2. First change one Item Cost sub-element rate to 0 in cost type = "pending",
  3. Add another sub-element with same the rate which did not cause the total cost value  to be different.
  4. Run "Update Standard Costs",
  5. It did not spawn any update and the Frozen cost did not get touch at all.
