Last updated on SEPTEMBER 27, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Warehouse Management - Version 11.5.10.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This document includes all versions of Oracle EBS 11i and R12


Symptoms

When attempting to putaway an LPN, the putaway rule that is getting executed is one in which the locator is supposed to be empty. (ie. empty_flag = 'Y'). However, the locator that is suggested is not actually empty. This appears to happen randomly. The correct rule is being executed, but still the locator suggested is not an empty locator.


STEPS
The issue can be reproduced occasionally with the following steps:
A) Set a putaway rule as Empty Flag = Y

B) Use mobile device or telnet to make a Directed Putaway with "Move Any LPN".
