Symptoms

When you perform auto detail for an OPM batch, the system creates detailed (lot allocation) reservation for the concerned item/quantity You expect system to not create High level reservations during auto detail line for any remaining un-detailed quantity.

Create a batch.
Batch qty = 100
Auto-detail the line using WMS rules engine to reserve the right and only the right stock, BUT system ends with high level reservation, instead of stopping reservation process...
...
Eg: Batch line qty = 100
By WMS rules engine, reservation = 80
and unfortunately, system creates a complementary high level (organization level reservation) of 20 without any relation with WMS setup rules.
...
If we setup WMS rules engine to reserve properly the ingredients, it is not to get a dummy organization level reservation.

==========
In process manufacturing, in R12, there is a dedicated reservation process.
When you create an OPM batch, the system creates a special move order, move_order_type = 8
A new lookup value has been created:
Lookup: MOVE_ORDER_TYPE
Application: Inventory
Code: 8
Meaning: Reservation
Description: Move Order Type created form reservation
.....
This move order is used by the system to create the ingredient reservation.  WMS is running its pick rules engine to determine precisely the reservation for the ingredients of the OPM batch.
.....
So, the function "Auto-detail" is submitting the WMS pick rule engine to determine the reservation for the ingredients, based on the special move order (move order type = 8).
.....
And it works well, the ingredients are reserved against the specific WMS rules EXCEPT that if the rules are not completely successful and that there is available stock WITHOUT CHECKING the WMS rules, then the system creates a org level reservation, and that' s wrong.
.....
the functionality of ingredient reservation can be mandatory in OPM because in process, (like in food industry) the pick rules are very precise (the selection of lot must match precise rules and so on).
