3349848 - Optimizer not using late delivery periods allowed even with stock/capacity available


You are running optimizer and due to constraints, the demand cannot be fully delivered on time, but could be fulfilled on later periods with late delivery periods allowed, but you observe that even having capacity some or all the late delivery periods are not used and there’s less late delivery than you expect.


For example, in a scenario where all the demand cannot be delivered in time, where you have allowed 6 periods of late delivery, you observe quantities delivered in time or using 2 or 3 periods of late delivery, but no quantity is delivered after this, even though there’s stock available or capacity to supply such demand until 6 periods of late delivery.
