Why a draft purchase order generated by the scheduler is taken into account in the Forecasted quantity while a draft purchase or
Products on a draft purchase order generated by the scheduler are taken into account in the calculation of the Forecasted Quantity but products on a draft purchase order created manually are not taken into account in the calculation.
The forecasted quantity is computed based on the stock moves. When a purchase order is created by the scheduler, the stock moves are directly taken into account (confirmed) but when you create a purchase order manually, the stock moves are only taken into account when you validate your purchase order.
Those different behaviors are due to the following reasons:
A PO created manually is likely to be modified or deleted. While a PO generated by the scheduler is more likely to be approved as it is based on the reordering rules or on other configurations.
The virtual stock is also used for the reordering rules and so it is important that the PO generated by the scheduler directly appears in the virtual stock to avoid mistakes. Indeed, if the PO generated by the scheduler were not taken into account in the stock and that you run the scheduler a second time, before validating the draft purchase order already generated by the scheduler before, OpenERP would regenerate new PO as the rules are based on the forecasted quantity. You would have a double PO.
