2432262 - Message: "Logistics area defined with exception usage Over The Counter Stock" triggered while confirming Pick Task.

Symptom

We are trying to confirm a pick task PQR, but system is showing information message:

        Logistics area XYZ is not recommended; some constraints not met

--->  Logistics area defined with exception usage Over The Counter Stock

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to  Outbound Logistics work center.
  2. Select the Task Control view.
  3. Search for the relevant task PQR.
  4. Select it and choose Confirm button.
  5. In the task confirmation screen, enter Actual Quantity and then enter Source Logistics Area ID as XYZ. It shows information message:

      Logistics area XYZ is not recommended; some constraints not met;

---> Logistics area defined with exception usage Over The Counter Stock

Cause

For pick task, the operation type is Pick. You have defined the logistics model for Standard Shipping for the relevant site.

In this model for operation type Pick  Source Logistics Use is defined as Storage.

However, in the Supply Chain and Design Master Data for logistics area XYZ, logistics usage is defined as Over The Counter Stock. Hence system gives this information message.

Resolution

System is working as designed. You need to adapt the master data in case you intend to avoid the message.
