  4. In the screen "Create Outbound Delivery and Goods Issue", identified stock IDN_1 is proposed.
  5. 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.
  6. Check the material flow rule of ship-from site, FIFO is selected as picking strategy.


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.


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.
