Help in Extreme condition testing

Post by Jindu » Fri Apr 12, 2019 4:47 pm

Hello Everyone,
I’m trying to carry out Extreme Condition Test but it gives an error message “Floating point error computing - Order Fulfillment Ratio - at time = 0.000000”. Trying to save the results anyway.
I would really appreciate some help in sorting out this issue.
Regards.

It's a simple division by zero. "Desired shipment Rate" is zero which causes the problem.

The quickest way to correct this is to use the ZIDZ function.
