OTM Not Calculating The Correct Volume Of Partial Ship Units

(Doc ID 951188.1)

Last updated on JULY 09, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Management - Version: 5.5.05
This problem can occur on any platform.


-- Problem Statement:
On 5.5.05:

OTM assumes that its shipping pallets in full, even in case of partial pallets and thus it calculates the volume of fully loaded Ship Unit and not the correct part pallet volume, which creates discrepancy in calculation.

-- Steps To Reproduce:

1- Create an order base with the following details.

Total Package Count: 200

* Packaged Item:

L/W/H: 0.2/0.35/0.21
Number of Layers On Ship Unit: 5
Quantity Per Layer: 17

* Transport Handling Unit:

L/W/H: 1.16/1.16/0.15
The THU is configured with ON.

2- Releasing the 200 packages results in an OR with gross volume of 4.84416 where it is expected
to be 3.99643.

Release Method: Auto Calc.
Allow Over Releasing: Per Release.

OTM calculations:
Layer height = packaged item height x numbers of layers = 0.21x5=1.05
Total height= Layer height + THU height = 1.05+0.15=1.2
Volume for 1 ship unit= total height x THU length x THU width = 1.2x1.16x1.16 = 1.61472
Volume for 3 ship units (Gross Volume)= 1.61472x3= 4.84416
