Today I discovered with horror, that LP21 doesn't work as I thought I would (and still think it should).
My problem is:
it looks at the available stock on the fixed bin.
it should look at the total stock, in my opinion.
Situation on Fixed bin:
Total Stock: 40
Available Stock: 5
-> so physically, there are still 40 PCE on the fixed bin (of which 35 have picking-TOs created and are "soon" to be picked).
-> the total stock reflects the pysical quantity.
As there are 40 PCE on the bin right now physically, another 40 (repl. quantity) will not fit in there.
This is, why I think LP21 shold NOT create a replenishment in that case.
If LP21 where to look at total stock (instead of available stock) this would solve my problem.
(I now do know this is as documented (LP21 I-Button), but I still think it's wrong!)
Can you think of any workaround sollution?
And do you understand why this can be a problem?
(if we could pick before we do replenishment, this would not hurt much, but right now we have replenishment TOs created, that we cannot execute because of physical constraints)
