2828720 - Planning Does not Allow More Than Three Decimal Places


In the element 'Quantities and Units of Measure' in Business Configuration work center, 8 decimal places are maintained for Unit of Measure. While creating a Bill of Material, you were able to enter a Quantity for the Input Products with more than 6 decimals for the said Unit of Measure. However, when you create a Proposal with this Unit of Measure, the system is showing the Quantity of that Unit of Measure with 3 decimals only.

Now you want to know why this is the case, and if there is a possibility to display the exact same Quantity in your Bill of Material as well as in the Production Proposal/Production Request.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to the Supply Planning work center.
  2. Go to the Products view.
  3. Find and open the relevant Material.
  4. Navigate to the relevant Planning Area (Product Planning Details).
  5. Open any Production Request (or Production Proposal).
  6. Go to the Request Structure tab.
  7. Expand the Elements ID.
  8. Find the Quantity of the Input Product with up to 3 decimal places.
  9. The Quantity does not have the same amount of decimal places that are maintained in the Bill of Material.



Planning allows maximum of 3 decimals. In cases where there are more than 3 decimals, rounding is done.


The system is working as designed, and shows the same Quantity, but rounded.
