We are active in retail industry, managing more than 30 warehouses and 1600 stores. We run the master planning and feed the stores with the Planned Transfer Orders. Now, we came across an issue.
Assume that for a certain day in a store, there is a Demand Forecast (=11) and Minimum QTY (=5), and the Multiple of the item for ordering is equal to 10.
Besides, Minimum fulfill is First Issue.
In this way, system generates two distinct transfer orders with the same Order Date and Delivery Date! first one is to peg Minimum and its QTY is 10 (equal to multiple) and the second one is to peg Demand and its QTY is 20 (according to multiple).
So, the total requirement for that day is 11+5=16 while the generated transfer order amounts are 20+10=30. we expected to first aggregate them and then round it up to multiples (11+5=16----->20).
The question is that how can we set up system to integrate orders for the same day?
