Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to workcenter Product Data.
  2. Select Materials view
  3. Search for the material XYZ, where you could see Purchased check box is checked.
  4. Select Edit button after highlighting the material and select View All button
  5. Go to Planning tab, where Procurement type is displayed as In house production.


The system works as designed.


In the search window, the purchased status is checked if the purchasing status is Active (ie Material is active for purchasing).   And the in-house is checked if the material is assigned to a Production model.

This is not to be related to the status shown, Planning tab -> Procurement Type –> InHouse Production. You can refer to 1807041 - How to Enable In-House Production for a Material? for more details
