Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Outbound Logistics Work Center.
  2. Choose the Delivery Proposals View.
  3. Select the Delivery Proposal XYZ and click on the Post Goods Issue button.

Cause

The FIFO rule works in the order that the dates are sorted in the following order if the identified stock type is maintained in your product master data.

1. Identified stock Expiration Date.
2. Identified stock Production Date (If the Expiration Date is not maintained).

If the Expiration Date is maintained then FIFO date will be the Expiration Date else it will be the Production Date.

Resolution

Note : If all the identified stocks have the same Expiritation Date and/or same Production Date , then one of them is picked in random order.

This is the standard system behavior and system behaves as designed.
