The Forecasted Cost being reported by the DWH in the reports is not correct.
Based on the description of the FCST_COST field in the DWH_INV_SUMMARY_FACTS table, this field should provide this:
“Total forecast cost for the plan that is the plan of record. Equals actual_cost if the period is past, plan_cost if the period is current or future.”
However, the value does not include Unplanned Lines for past periods.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a cost plan with planned lines. Make sure you have some periods in the past. I grouped mine by resource and transaction class then used a different transaction class on one transaction to make the unplanned line.
2. Post transactions a) One to match the planned lines b) One to a different value (transclass) so you get an unplanned line.
3. Run Load DWH (I ran full) 4. Check dwh_inv_summary_facts 5. Check field FCST_COST
Expected Result: FCST_COST should include all actual costs for past periods plus planned for current month and future
Actual Result: FCST_COST does not include actual costs in past periods for Unplanned Lines.
The queries used to gather the Forecast amounts was not correct.
