Plenty of orders created by CTM

Hi Experts,

We have an item produced at 5 different plants all supplied to the same hub. I have incorporated huge demand to this item, and ran the CTM. Accordingly to the procurement priority of plants, the demand is met and Production plan is created at the plants in sequnce of the priority. Since it is constrained, the first 4 plants were able to give 100% resource utilization for the huge demand and the remaining when gone for the last prioritized plant... there is an interesting behaviour seen.

The CTM run calculated the producton plan in weekly buckets for all the first 4 plants and when it came to the fifth plant, it required to use only 20% of the available resource to meet the remaining demand. During the CTM run, dont know why but plenty of orders are created for the same item on a single day rather than creating one order per day as it went in case of other plants.

I have seen the location master data settings of the other plants and the fifth plant; resource used at other plants and the fifth plants have same settings; what might be the reason for this behaviour?

Thank you very much in advance.
