    Thumbs up DIM factor - rate not being picked

    Despite the DIM factor attached to the rate offerring, the the shipment does not calculate the cost with the dimensional weight.

    Illustration
    =======
    Shipment Weight : 260Kg
    Dimensional weight: 600 Kg
    Dim factor configured in Rate offerring as 166
    Rate Record => Charge 1.6 USD per Kg of Shipment Chargeable weight.
    The charges as computed in the shipment:
    Actual Result= 260*1.6
    Expected Result: 600*1.6

    Irrespective of DIM weight being higher than actual, technically it is expected to give a result of computing DIM weight with the rate multiplier.

    Pls advise if there is a workaround.

    Cant add these 2 in the rate costs with a "maximum" tag, as there are multple rate heads for the same rate record, which are stable irrespective of the per Kg charges. Eg: per shipment charges

    Thanks

    Re: DIM factor - rate not being picked

    By default, Dim Rate Factor only works for Vessel, Air and TL transportation modes.
    However, you can change Rate Attributes (by DBA.ADMIN) via Contract and Rate Management > Power Data > Contracts > Rate Attributes.

    Re: DIM factor - rate not being picked

    Did you try with your rate basis as Shipment Total Dimensional weight?

    Hi Sachin,

    Which version are you using? 5.5.CU4 or 5.5.CU6

    In 5.5.CU4 calculation of the Dimensional weight itself is a bug from OTM, even though if you open the attributes [DIM Factor] for the offering mode.

    In 5.5.CU6 you have to use the rate basis - Shipment total dimensional weight instead of Shipment Hundred Chargeable weight.

    Regards,
    Chirthal

    Re: DIM factor - rate not being picked

    Thank you all. Pls find my comments below:

    @josephliang - Mode is Air

    @ Sachin - I tried rate basis as Dimensional weight. But it considers dim weight for weight calucation irrespective. i needed to chargeable weight to be the higher value among DIM weight and actual weight.

    @Chirthal - 6.0.4 is the version.

    pls help me resolve this asap.

    Regards
    Lekshmy Shaji

    Re: DIM factor - rate not being picked

    Hi Lekshmi,

    May be you can have the Multi-Cost Rule as maximum and put two cost lines. 1 with basis as DIM weight and the other with the one which you have right now.

    Regards,
    Anirban Roy

    Re: DIM factor - rate not being picked

    Thanks Anirban, The concern is that i have a host of other cost heads - like per shipment charges, breakbulk charges, destination min charges etc, which would be part of this multi cost rule. hence i cant give maximum..

    is there another way around?

    In fact OTM help says the system should pick whichever is the greater value amongst actual and dim weights, if a dimfactor is associated to the rate record or to the corresponding rate offerring..But its not working that way.

    Re: DIM factor - rate not being picked

    I implemented Dim Rate Factor for one of my customers and OTM (5.5 CU5) does produce the result same as online help stated.

    I don't see any bug related to Dim Rate Factor reported in 6.x. Maybe you should log a SR to Oracle Support.

    Speaking to Multi-Cost Rule, please note that online help explanation is not complete.

    Add OTM simply adds all valid costs derived and determines the final total cost

    Maximum OTM charges the lowest of the cost marked as maximum and the highest normal cost. If no cost is marked maximum, OTM charges the highest normal cost
    Code:
    Min{cost marked as max, highest normal cost}
    Minimum OTM charges the highest of the cost marked as minimum and the highest normal cost. If no cost is marked minimum, OTM charges the highest normal cost
    Code:
    Max{cost marked as min, highest normal cost}
