To consider unassigned demands at all the DGs configured in the common code.

When an unassigned demand is created, RTAM publishes availability only to the DG which has a priority set in the common code while other DG's are updated with X onHand quantity and doesn't consider the unassigned demand.

By considering unassigned demands for all DG's configured, there will be a uniformity in the OnHand available quantity across all DG's and we can eliminate the above mentioned inventory discrepancy.

What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

By considering unassigned demands for all DG's we can maintain a consistency in the inventory levels and thereby eliminating the inventory discrepancy, we can avoid scenarios of over promising to the customer.

For eg. Consider an unassigned demand of 3 units, later inventory adjustment is done for Node A for 12 units, RTAM publishes 9 units only against the DG which is set as priority 1 in common code , while it publishes 12 units for all other DG's which are set in common code.
