We are using master planning for our transfer orders. The issue we are experiencing is that for the quantity suggested for transfers considers items that are on purchase orders but we have not yet received. We would like to know if there is a configuration that we can change so that the transfer order only considers physically available inventory?
Main Warehouse has 100 units available.
I have 200 units on purchase orders.
I run master programming and for one of my retail stores the minimum is 150 so the planning suggests me to transfer 150 units from the main warehouse. The transfer order is created for 150 units (taking the 100 units that are available and reserving 50 from the purchase order). The system does not show at that point that only 100 units are available and 50 are on purchase orders. The store thinks it will receive 150.
We want the system to only suggest what is available i.e. the 100 units, and not reserve inventory from purchase orders; otherwise if we firm the planned transfer order and release it to warehouse we will have "Work Creation Error".
