There are two business scinario work in this case either MTS or MTO.I am not sure which strategy you are following .But As long as Forecast Qty are there to full the demand and you have Sales Order Delivery date in Future , this qty will be nulified during ATP check at Sales Order and system will confirmed you in stock availability before the delivery date .Now , it also depends on in following ways :
1. OMJJ-Update Control -Consuption Posting -R should be in place
2.OVAG -Requirement Class -Requirement Trasnfer shouldbe marked
3.This Requirement class (MTO/MTS) should be assinged in Define Strategy -Consumption -Consumption planning material in SPRO
4.For MTO process , Consumption Mode at plant level set up in SPRO and same in Material Master
Hope this will give an idea on your requirement
