I have a product with procurement Manufacture and Make To Order. There are 100 items on stock.
When I create a Sale Order for 1 item system generates Manufacturing Order instead taking the item from stock.
How to configure the product to be taken form the stock first if there is enough stock?

Procure Method Types:

  • Make to Stock: We always take care about the stock and we have to define a minimum stock rule for that. If we don't have enough stock then we must assign a minimum stock rule for that according to this rule it will creates a quotation (purchase order).


  • Make to Order: We never take care about the stock for this procure method because this procure method will creates a Purchase order same as a Sale order's quantity.

Let's differentiate both of the method, If I have created a Sale order for "Make to Stock" type of product then first it checks the stock from the product's virtual stock. If there is not stock available then it will going to check the "Minimum Stock Rule" for that and created a PO based on this rule.

If the procure method " Make to order", it doesn't check the stock and created a Purchase order same quantity as sale order (I mean "make to order" never take care about the stock) just like trading. 

Hope this help...
