Inventory Replenishment not accounting for open PO's when planning

  • 1.  Inventory Replenishment not accounting for open PO's when planning

    ​​Hi Everyone,
          I am a bit unfamiliar with inventory replenishment but bear with me.  Our warehouse manager believes we have started to see an error in inventory replenishment after we updated from 2011 SP3 to 2015 cu2 earlier in the year.  For example, we have an inventory item with 38 items available, 150 on an open PO order with a max setting of 200 in inventory at any time.    When he runs planning and all the usual activity the system wants to cut a PO for 162 to add to the 38 currently on hand to bring the amount up to 200 and seems unaware of the 150 already on an open PO.  Is this the way the system works by default and it is simply unaware of the PO or is something amiss?

    Anyway, any advice would be appreciated
