I am having a problem using on hand inventory as safety stock. So, even if I have more inventory on hand than the minimum stock key, a replenishment order is created.
The "Fulfill minimum" key is set as "Today" but as I get it, if I have enough inventory I should not have an order to replenish the safety stock today.
Negative days are set as zero and positive days are 365.
Thank you all.

Hi Nacho, if parameters are ok you should analize other possible situations... the item is batch controlled? is it expired? the disposition code is available? The requirement profile button should show you the inventory if AX is considering it
In reply to Héctor Eduardo Cazot:
I think that a screenshot from the Plan tab of the item itself, Item coverage, General tab would be of help.
Was this item created within AX, or was it created with an data import tool?

This is the table of the net requirements with negative days set to zero:
This is the capture of the net requirements with 365 negative days:
In both situations I do not understand why there is a purchase proposal if the on hand inventory is higher than the minimum key.
Thank you everybody.
This is the item coverage form:
And this is the Group coverage form:
I hope you find it helpful.
I was just exploring the possibilities of using the min/max key on a product with demand forecast. I am aware that it does not make much sense but then I found out that AX did not work as I expected or at least as I expected the min/max key to work.
If I set the key to "period" it still creates another purchase order in order to cover the safety stock:
The reduction key is set for weekly periods.
Thank you Adam.
