Available stock vs blocked stock

Updated May 18, 2018

I work for an oil company. Our products are stored in tanks, this results in having unpumpable stock at the bottom of the tank. Hence available never equals physical stock. I tried using blocked stock to record the unpumpable volumes, however in MD04, the stock available includeds the blocked stock. The other option i have is the record this unpumpable stock as safety stock. Do i have any other option to reflect this stock on SAP, where it does not get included in available stock.

Thank You

    Hi, if the stock always sits in the bottom of the tank and is never removed or cleaned, why not adjust stock to remove the qty? If the tank levels are automatically read, is it possible to recalibrate to ignore the amount of unusable stock?
