With the arrival of Advanced warehousing there is "picking work" for a production order. We found that open picking work stops the rescheduling of the prod order. we do not understand why this is good functionality. It creates a lot of problems for those companies that do not pick all Prod BOM items at the start. Our customer picks the majority before operation 10 starts, but then subsequent pickings occur. Every time there is picking work , the scheduling does not work. Which means the capacity is not updated correctly after an operation is completed. The system wants to reschedule to reflect the spent hours but it can't. Our idea: REMOVE the dependency between picking and scheduling. There is no business reason to have this connection. Scheduling should only stop because of the usual missing calendars or missing resources in resource groups. It is a very bad idea to create a dependency with material picking being complete. This is not how real businesses operate.

Thank you for your feedback.

Currently this is not in our roadmap; however, we are tracking it and if we get more feedback and votes, we may consider it in the future.

We also had this problem and had to put in a customization to remove the limitation. It ends up being a single location in the rescheduling logic which is checking if open work exists. We could not simulate a scenario where scheduling with open work would cause problems. I agree that this limitation shouldn't exist.
