Why doesn't production orders create outbound warehouse requests?

In Business Central, production orders on an advanced location or a location with the directed put away and pick checkmark, meaning in the location code on the production order, they won’t create outbound warehouse request and that’s because a production order is not going to make a sales shipment document.

This is what happens in the video

So if you have a checkmark on your location card in the require shipment, then when you process and refresh the production order, no outbound warehouse requests will be created, but it’s possible on the actions to actually create in here an inbound warehouse request.

So, it’s possible to make a request for the output of the production order that you want the inventory to put back in inventory.

But no outbound inventory request for production orders. Only warehouse pick on advanced locations.
