Exception chain (click button "Unformatted Display" for all details):                                                                                                                                   
1. Info: The argument 'Initialization Error' cannot be interpreted as a number, CX_SY_CONVERSION_NO_NUMBER, Program: <custom Z-implementation of SCMB_CL_DDD_CONNECTOR>=======CP, Include:<custom Z-implementation of SCMB_CL_DDD_CONNECTOR> =======CM004, Position:281                                         
2. Info: An exception with the type CX_SY_CONVERSION_NO_NUMBER occurred, but was neither handled locally, nor declared in a RAISING clause,
3. Info: Application error: Exception while calling method EXECUTE of action OPTIMIZE, /BOBF/CX_FRW_CORE, Program:/SCMTMS/VSR_OPT_BGD, Include:, Position:0  

Debugging in the custom Z-implementation of SCMB_CL_DDD_CONNECTOR, there is a proxy call to PC Miler or other external third party GIS provider.

In the INPUT response or RETURN, there is "Initialization error".  The expected value would be the distance for the OUTPUT call.
