2469378 - Deployment with Push Distribution 'S' does not respect the Safety Stock

Symptom

You are executing Deployment with Push Distribution 'S': Push taking the safety stock horizon into account.

Even though you have set a Safety Stock, such as MB, MZ or SZ, the Source Location is not considering the Safety Stock value when confirming the orders.



For Example:

  • There is a 5-day safety stock horizon and a safety stock of 100 pieces.
  • On deploy date 1, the available-to-deploy quantity (ATD quantity) at the source location is 200 pieces.
  • On day 7, there is a planned distribution demand of 200 pieces.

BUCKET 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
PLANNED DIST. DEMAND      200
CONFIRMED DIST. DEMAND
STOCK 200  200 200 200 200 200 200
SAFETY STOCK 100 100 100 100 100



  • When you run deployment, the system will confirm a quantity of 100 pieces for day 1.
  • The safety stock of 100 pieces remains at the source location.
  • On day 3, the remaining quantity of 100 pieces is confirmed resulting in a stock smaller than the safety stock.

BUCKET 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
PLANNED DIST. DEMAND          
CONFIRMED DIST. DEMAND 100 100
STOCK 100  100 000 000 000 000 000
SAFETY STOCK 100 100 100 100 100
