Is there a glossary anywhere that says how calculated values on the FWB are actually calculated? Before posting this message, I have reviewed:
Application Help (this says “the quantity that has been fulfilled” - not very helpful)
Advanced Material Management Course
Application User Guide
I am trying to figure out what the calculation is behind “fulfilled” since it does not appear to be an actual database field.
One of our users wants to see certain fields from the FWB in a BAQ (to which we will add some other fields). So I need to be able to replicate the FWB columns in this query. “Fulfilled” hast me stumped. Based on an English-language definition, I would expect that the value in “Fulfilled” would be some number up to the amount of Our Req Qty.
However, I have the following situations:
- An order for 24 where both Allocated and Picked are 24 and so Fulfilled is 48. How can we fulfill more than the order?
- An order for 240 where Allocated is 192 and Picked is 240 and so Fulfilled is 432. Same question as above.
I would expect that the parts would move through a process - from Reserved to Allocated to Picking to Picked. I would not expect that a single part (a physical thing) could be characterized as simultaneously being in two of these steps.
But I am unable to locate any documentation that explains what action causes a part to move from one of these steps in the sequence t the next (assuming there actually is a sequence)
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
