Return item to blocked stock (Movement type 531)

Post by Flare » Thu Dec 11, 2008 3:46 pm

Hello. I have a question.

In my Bill of Material, I have an item with a negative quantity; this is so when I confirm a Production Order, the component, instead of being backflushed (MvT 261), instead, it is returned to stock with Movement Type 531.

My question is, how can I determine that this item is always returned to Blocked Stock instead of Unrestricted Use Stock?

If a component is entered with a negative quantity in the order, a reservation item is created with 531 (instead of 261 ). The receipt of a by-product can be entered when the component for the order is withdrawn from stock or it can be entered as an 'other goods receipt'.
