    MTO by definition will only consider Sales order stock. This is the main planning difference between MTO and MTS. Thus, if you have generic stock on hand (not sales order specific) it is supposed to be excluded from MRP planning.

    If you wish for MTO planning to consider generic stock, you have to first convert the stock to Sales Order specific stock (Special stock type 'E') using a Material Movement transaction. Or, you can stop using MTO and use an MTS strategy, such as 40.

    For more info about MTO planning see

    Best Regards,
