3221942 - Material Flow Rule FIFO Doesn't Work When Post Goods Issue

Symptom

During post goods issue, system proposes identfied stock IDN_1, but you expect IDN_2 because you have set FIFO as picking strategy in material flow rule of ship-from site and IDN_2 has an earlier expiration date than IDN_1.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Outbound Logistics - Delivery Proposals
  2. Search ABC (ABC represents delivery proposal ID), click Post Goods Issue
  3. In the screen "Create Outbound Delivery and Goods Issue", identified stock IDN_1 is proposed
  4. Click value help of Identified Stock ID, you can see identified stock IDN_2 is also available, it has earlier expiration date than IDN_1
  5. Check the material flow rule of ship-from site, FIFO is selected as picking strategy

Cause

In corresponding logistics model (Standard Shipping, Without Task), "Storage" is selected for Source Logistics Use; however, in the material flow rule of ship-from site, different logistics area use is selected for Source Determination Rules.

Resolution

You can either change the Source Logistics Use in logistics model, or add a new sequence under Source Determination Rules in the material flow rule of ship-from site, so that there is a matching of logistics use between logistics model with material flow rule.
