Production Plan miscalculating Required Materials


#1

I am implementing the production planning feature at a factory, and noticed that the raw materials required is incorrectly calculated under the following circumstances:

  • Multiple Items are planned to be manufacturered together
  • One or more items has a minimum quantity required to purchase

For example Product A requires 1000 units of RM, while Product B requires 8000 units of RM.
Minimum order quantity for RM is 1500 units.

What the system is doing: is taking the first 1000, calculating that we are well under the minimum quantity and as such calculating 1500 units. But then it seems to loop around for the second product and with that we are going over the minimum requirement, but the system still shows 1500 units of RM Required.

Can anyone verify this? It’s actually. a pretty big bug int he system.strong text
