2615012 - Sequence of Source Does Not Work When Confirming a Pick Task

Symptom

The system is ignoring the sequence of source defined in the Material Flow Rules for Logistics Area XXX. When trying to confirm the Pick Task ABC, the Target Logistics Area is XXX and the system is proposing Source Logistics Area ZZZ. However, there is another possible Source Logistics Area YYY which comes first in the sequence of source for Logistics Area XXX. Both Logistics Areas YYY and ZZZ have enough stock to fulfill the task and belong to two different Sites.

ABC = Task ID

XXX = Logistics Area ID

YYY = Logistics Area ID

ZZZ = Logistics Area ID

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Outbound Logistics work center.
  2. Select Task Control view.
  3. Search for Task ABC.
  4. Select the Task ABC.
  5. Choose Confirm.
  6. Select the Line Item you want to confirm.

Notice that the Source Logistics Area being proposed is ZZZ.

 

To check the sequence of source for Logistics Area XXX:

  1. Go to Supply Chain Design Master Data work center.
  2. Select Locations view.
  3. Search for the site where the Logistics Area XXX is in.
  4. Select site where the Logistics Area XXX is in.
  5. Choose Edit Layout.
  6. Find the Logistics Area XXX.
  7. Select the Logistics Area XXX.
  8. Select Material Flow Rules.
  9. Select Source.
  10. Choose Search Sequence.

Here you can check that Logistics Area YYY comes before ZZZ to be chosen as source.

Cause

You have defined Material Flow Rules for Logistics Area XXX at Logistics Area level. Since Logistics Areas YYY and ZZZ belong to two different Sites and there is no Material Flow Rules defined at Site level, the proposed Logistics Area ZZZ is valid.

Resolution

You need to define Material Flow Rules for the Site where XXX is in, by selecting as Source the Sites of YYY and ZZZ. Since Logistics Areas YYY and ZZZ belong to two different Site, you need to define all at Site level.
