We are on v6112 and have a formulation with 10 raw materials. None of the materials have any design attributes of any kind. When they are formulated, there is no G/L designated and no adjusters on the output material. I have looked at each input, the material breakdowns, the formulation tab and the process tag in the formulation spec and the adjusters in the output material. The formulation page is somehow calculating a moisture loss at 0.9220 instead of 1.0000 that we are at a loss to understand how this is. This is throwing off the expected result of the formulation. I am finding no data that should be impacting this calculation. Any suggestions on what else needs to be checked that will impact moisture loss calculation? Thank you. BeckieC
This sounds like a bug so I would submit an SR. One thing you can check though is make sure none of your inputs have breakdowns with no components added but are still tagged as regulatory. This condition causes odd results. I think it's resolved in 18.104.22.168 but support will be able to give you a definitive answer.
We just installed the v6113 patch in our DEV environment, saw some issues and had it reapplied over the weekend. Issues were not related to the patch ... related to a customization touched by the patch. We are not fully UAT'd in DEV to the Release Notes on the formulation issues we are seeing in our v6112 PROD environment but we are anxious to get this done. We do not have the same specifications in DEV as PROD so that is our delay. I will give you a status update as soon as I know more.
My own testing has yeilded mixed results thus far. In some very simple formulas 22.214.171.124 seems to work better. However, in more complex formulas where outputs are consumed in other outputs we are still seeing strange losses from step to step, in some cases a loss of an entire input (output from another step). For example, we may take step 1 and step 3 output and put into step 4, but we lose one of the inputs to show a material loss on step 4 output that does not make sense. Very frustrating. No adjusters or anything that would cause a loss anywhere in the formula. All inputs have breakdowns with component percentages and solids so no issues there.
I am at a loss as to what is going on (figuratively and literally)
We believe we found a documentation bug in the v6113 Release notes.
Release notes says that GSM.FormulationSpec.OutputComposition.Normalization.Enabled is located in CustomerSettings.config => FeatureConfig section. Release notes says that GSM.FormulationSpec.OutputComposition.UpperBoundary & LowerBoundary are located in CustomerSettings.config => GSMSettings section. For the GSM.FormulationSpec.OutputComposition.Normalization.Enabled we are not finding this setting post v6113 install in CustomerSettings.config, and we think that they are actually in <HOME>\Config\Reference\BaseFeatureConfig.config file ...
It took a couple of hours to figure this out so I wanted to share on forum in case anyone else is having same issue .....
