Removal Strategy for Addition to existing stock

Hello Experts,

We are receiving the goods from production and we want them as per addition to existing principle.

And we want system to remove the stock by using FIFO strategy

But when i read the putaway strategy (I) in detail it is written that FIFO violates Addition to existing stock.

So in this situation what removal strategy is best to use  ?

    It is not that FIFO violates I-additionto existing stock, it is another way round due to strategy I you loose the earlier quant number which is a base for FIFO principal to work, in fact if your requirement is to follow the FIFO during picking then you need to make sure that stock is clearly segregated based on the incoming date. Decision about which strategy you should use us depend on the business and physical infrastructure. If you have racks and you want to follow FIFO then I suggest go ahead with L-next empty bin (but you need to look about underutilization about the warehouse space)
