GreetingsI agree with the other replies that setting the Coverage group to manual will resolve this, but sometimes there are disadvantages to this. One is that if you have different coverage rules per Site/Warehouse for each product then this could be a lot of work to maintain and the other is that when you run out of stock then someone has to remember to manually turn the coverage rules back on or you risk shortages. As such the method works best for end-of-line sell outs and less well for temporary situations.
Another option to deal with a temporary overstock, is to have a dummy warehouse for this product I will call 'Overstock'. You don't actually transact or store product in this warehouse but you can use it to 'park' the demand in. If you change the product coverage rules to transfer the product from 'Overstock' rather than Purchase then you don't remove planned orders but you do put it all in one bucket that can be filtered out of the planned purchase orders by your team when firming. On the other side you can specifically filter for planned purchase orders for this warehouse and then change the order type to transfer from another warehouse with stock or simply firm the Purchase if the freight cost outweigh the benefit of relocating the stock.Good luckDuane
