Reproducing the Issue

  1. Production Control - Production Orders
  2. Search ABC (ABC represents the production order ID), click Edit
  3. Click button Stock and Demand Overview
  4. In the pop-up window, for input product XYZ (XYZ represents the product ID), there is a positive on hand stock and free stock.
  5. In Stock Overview, search product XYZ, there is only one on-hand stock in logistics area LA_1 (LA_1 represents the logistics area ID).
  6. Open logistics area LA_1, it has logistics use "Not Relevant for Planning".


Though logistics area LA_1 has been maintained with logistics use "Not Relevant for Planning", its on-hand stock can still be used as input product in production, this is because a company might still be interested to use remaining stock of such logistics area for sales or production.
