I have following scenario:
- Two shops that are assigned to two different warehouses and location (WH1/LOC1 and WH2/LOC2)
- I enter two sales order, one for WH1 and another for WH2, each having one line with the same product PRODUCT1
- I've mainteind re-ordering rules for the PRODUCT1 for both Warehouses. I'm not using any push or pull rules.
- After saving the sales orders I get two Scheduler Procurement exceptions "Procurement 'PRODUCT1' is in exception: Not enough stock.", one for each sales order / product line. Exceptions have different destination locations LOC1 and LOC2 when displaying them.
So far so good. When I run scheduler i get only one purchase quotation which have only one item with LOC2 in it and quantity is sum of the two exceptions i.e. Scheduler is merging the purchase requisitions to one. How would you be able to create two purchase quotations with different (destination) locations LOC1 and LOC2? I used scheduler with option "
I found related bug and looks like this is still not solved:
Your views are highly appreciated.
EDIT: I used Procurement method 'or order' in sales order and got two different purchase requisitions with LOC1 and LOC2, just like I wanted basically. Question still is whether you really have to have this 'on order' setting flagged?
I think I found a solution. I use still the original settings (re-ordering rules, make to stock procurement etc.). But instead of using Scheduler I used Procurement Exception report and use option "Compute Stock Minimum Rules Only" with "Automatic orderpoint" option. After this I got two purchase quotations with two different destination locations just as I wanted. The reordering rules were also considered ok. I still could not quite figure out the difference between Scheduler and Procurement Exception functionality in this context. Maybe somebody could clarify the use cases for these.
