      Description

      when we transfer inventory, the accountingQuantityTotal field of InventoryItem entity is always ZERO. There is no reflection of ATP/QOH in accountingQuantityTotal.

      This will create following issues in the system.

      1. Accounting quantity total will mismatch with the original quantity in the facility which shows the wrong result when we calculate facility specific inventory valuation.
      2. Inventory reservation also throws an error in some specific case like when AQT of respective product is zero in the specific facility from when reservation happens.

      As we manage 5 different statuses of inventory transfer in OFBiz and according to my current understanding these processes are associated with the respective statuses, which are as show below
      Requested: As inventory transfer is requested for another facility.
      a)ATP, QOH and AQT should decrease from the inventory item of From Facility and QOH of To Facility should increase.
      b)ATP and AQT should be Zero in To Facility as inventory is not transferred yet. But QOH should increase at To Facility because QOH shows the xferquantity later. At the time of the completion of the transfer
      ATP = ATP + (QOH - ATP) (Adjustment in case of backorder)
      AQT = QOH
      b)AQT should not decrease because AQT is used for accounting purpose and as of now quantity is still in From Facility as the transfer is not done yet. which shows the xferQuantity later
      Scheduled: As inventory transfer is Scheduled for another facility. ATP, QOH and AQT should not affect in both From Facility and To Facility.
      En-route: As inventory is routed to reach at To Facility. Even in this case ATP, QOH and AQT should not affect in both From Facility and To Facility.
      Complete: As inventory transfer is completed
      a)ATP, QOH and AQT should not affect at From Facility.
      b)QOH will be same but ATP and AQT should affect respectively
      ATP = ATP + (QOH - ATP)
      AQT = QOH
      Cancelled: As inventory transfer is cancelled and inventory item record is already created so
      a) ATP, QOH and AQT should decrease from old inventory item and ATP, QOH and AQT should increase in the newly created inventory item.
      Key points:
      If the whole ATP and QOH is moved then new inventory item will not create. Only Facility and location are changed for existing inventory item.

      Before Changes:-

      As I know there are following processes are associated with respective statuses

      **Note: ATP-> Available to promise QOH-> Quantity on hand AQT-> Accounting quantity total

      1. Requested:-
      ATP =0 QOH=Transferred quantity AQT=0
      2. Scheduled:-
      ATP =0 QOH=Transferred quantity AQT=0
      3.En-Route:-
      ATP =0 QOH=Transferred quantity AQT=0
      4.Complete:-
      If the partial quantity of any inventory item is transferred.
      ATP =Transferred quantity QOH=Transferred quantity AQT=0
      If the whole quantity is transferred then only facility id and location will change no new inventory item record will create.
      5.Cancelled:-
      No new inventory item record will create. An inventory transfer record is created with whole ATP/QOH in cancelled status.

      After Changes:-
      As shown above, accounting quantity transfer will not affect in transfer inventory. After the following changes, records will be updated a shown below.

      1. Requested:-
      ATP =0 QOH=Transferred quantity AQT=0
      2. Scheduled:-
      ATP =0 QOH=Transferred quantity AQT=0
      3.En-Route:-
      ATP =0 QOH=Transferred quantity AQT=0
      4.Complete:-
      If the partial quantity of any inventory item is transferred.
      ATP =Transferred quantity QOH=Transferred quantity AQT=Transferred quantity
      If the whole quantity is transferred then only facility id and location will change no new inventory item record will create.
      5.Cancelled:-
      No new inventory item record will create. An inventory transfer record is created with whole ATP/QOH in cancelled status.
