Symptoms

User has several lots for an item, all with "available" on-hand inventory. They have a move request that is for a quantity of 1, with a FEFO enabled pick rule. The lot status is "released" (released status has no restrictions). Item attributes are set to use user-defined expiration date control and the lot divisible flag is set to Yes. Users process a move order request for a quantity of 1 and it consistently picks lot W111111 which is the only lot with an origination type of "Inventory" - all others had an origination type of "Receiving" as they came into on-hand through purchase receipts.

As a test, user entered another misc inventory transaction for a new lot (W111112) with an earlier expiration date and the system then picked this new lot. We are looking to confirm if the system is considering this origination type, and if so, why would it be considering that for purposes of picking?
