I've made the following somewhat strange observation with purchase-orders.
I've got a stocked item with a replenishment-rule 'Order below minimum'.
I've set the minimum on 5 items.
My stock minus reservation is 7.
I've created a salesorder for 1 item. Much to my surprise, a purchase-order for 1 item is created when i start the proces 'create purchase-order from sales-order'.
I've read that this process tries to create a purchase-order for every line on the sales-order but to me that does not make sense in my scenario. It's a stocked item with enough stock available. Shouldn't Compiere take into account:
- Stocked item 'y/n'
- Available stock
- Replenishment rule
We do have salesorders with stocked and non-stocked items and it will be a pain to go through these created PO-orders and delete all of which we know that are for supply of stocked items.
Is there a prober solution for this in compiere or is this simply how compiere works with generated PO's? The manual is not explicit about the process.
Creat PO form Sales order is designed to create an PO just for that single SO. If youwant to replenish your stock use replenishment
I think when you use the "create purchase order from sales order" functionality you are directing it to create a PO regardless. Normally you would create the SO and simply ship. If the stock is available a shipment will be created. If not well when you run the warehouse replenishment the needed PO will be created!
Thanks for your quick replies.
As mentioned by Kathy, I would expect only the PO for a a single SO, as one can tell from the populated SO-reference on the PO. I indeed only want to replenish stock through replenishment and not through the process 'create PO from SO'.
From that process 'create PO from SO', i would only like to see SO created for products that are defined as non-stocked items (no replenishment-rules applicable).
However, the 'Create PO from SO'-process gives me a PO for the stock-item on the SO as well, regardless of the actual stock-level so the process actually is replenishing the stock(and ignoring the replishment-rules, but that may be because it's seems to be doing stuff it shouldn't).
So I think we agree on the expected behaviour of Compiere. Is there maybe a customizing i've missed?
