Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Project Management work center.
  2. Navigate to Project Stock Orders view.
  3. Find and select the relevant Project Stock Order ID.
  4. Choose Edit button.
  5. Select the relevant Line Item and click Consume.
  6. Enter the relevant Details and click OK.
  7. The system returns the error message: Material not available for consumption in project.
  8. However you have already done the delivery on project for material ABC (ABC represents for the material ID that you want to consume on the project).


You have enabled identified stock ID for material ABC, however the current material in project stock is different from the one delivered to the project.

Steps to check:

  1. Go to Project Management work center.
  2. Open the relevant project and navigate to Product tab - Project Stock Order sub-tab.
  3. Find the relevant project stock order and check the document flow, you can find the Goods and Activity Confirmation for the delivery.
  4. Open the confirmation and note down the identified stock ID (XYZ represents for the material identified stock ID delivered to project).
  5. Then go to Stock Overview and check material ABC in relevant project stock.
  6. You can see, although quantity and logistic area are the same, the identified stock ID is not XYZ.


To known how the internal deliveries took place, please check the report: Confirmation Journal via Internal Logistics work center, and you can find relevant Transfer Confirmations there. Please move the quantities with identified stock ID XYZ back to the project stock, then the consumption can be performed with no error.
