  2. Navigate to Customer Demand View.
  3. Select the Customer Demand XXX.
  4. Navigate to Schedule Lines Sub-tab, you will note that the confirmed quantity shows 3 decimals with the custom UoM you created.


Open the master data of the confirmed product, you would find following information.

  • A Quantity Conversion between a standard UoM and the custom UoM.
  • Base/ Inventory Valuation UoM is the standard UoM.
  • Sales UoM is the custom one.

The confirmed quantity in some cases to have more than 3 decimal places, the issue is caused by a rounding to 3 decimal places during ATP checking.

As the consequence, the system creates a warehouse task with an additional line item for this product and the open quantity is the excess quantity caused by the rounding.

This is a known limitation in the live cache (planning and ATP).


Please reject the redundancy decimals during confirming task as a workaround.
