  3. Under Product Overview section, select Create Project Stock Order for Released Project Tasks 
  4. Select Item Type as Consumption at Site

Cause

 When you select Consumption at Site, in this scenario, the project consumes the materials from a particular site.

How Ship-From Determination happens in Project Stock Orders?

In the Consumption at Site scenario where the project consumes the materials from a particular site, the system takes the ship-from site from the project stock order. In the absence of a ship-from site, the system uses the address information of the ship-to party given in the project stock order to determine a matching transport zone, and finds a ship-from site based on the transport zone and transport lane information. The system always checks if a logistics area of logistics use Project Stock has been defined for the ship-from site before it uses it for a project stock order.

The reason why system does not show any value under the ship-from location because there is no stock at particular site for product. Hence when you select Consumption at site, no value comes under Ship-From location section.

Note:

In the Pre-delivery scenario where the materials are pre-delivered to the site of consumption, the system uses the address information of the ship-to party given in the project stock order to determine a matching transport zone. Based on the transport zone and transport lane information, it finds a ship-from site in the same way as described for sales orders and sales quotes.

Resolution

You need to create a stock for product at particular site. Make sure that you define the logistics area of logistics use Project Stock has been defined for the ship-from site before it uses it for a project stock order. Later you will be able to select Ship-From location details for consumption at site.
