Find that when scheduling a task with a parts requirement (scheduling manually in 'Intelligent' Mode with parts mandatory), an internal order is created for the required quantity and item. But there is also an additional internal order line for (most of) the remaining quantity of the source organization, which would deplete all stock in that organization. That means all stock for that item is currently reserved for this sales order and cannot be used by other engineers.
The second source line for the parts requirement should not be there. Only the required quantity should be sourced and ordered.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Enter SR with task
2. Do not assign task yet, but first enter the parts requirement
3. Then assign task, using 'Intelligent' Mode with 'Task Part Mandatory' and 'Warehouse' as source
4. Find plan option for a resource that is known to not have the required item (on stock in his primary subinventory). Choose that option
5. Go to the parts requirement and see that an internal order had been placed. One line for the required quantity - and one line for (most of) the remaining quantity in the source organization
Note that when using Part Search (creating the Parts Requirement after assignment instead of before), there are 2 identical potential source lines found. Choosing one of those results in normal requirement line detail creation though. This issue happens only when the parts requirement is sourced automatically during the scheduling action.
