It should belong to special Placement. Add capacity to the placement under Repository Configuration and you can use the colours to help you keep track of your stock (but will work in reverse), i.e. red = your stock is full – GOOD. Yellow = start procurement process. Orange = stock should be arriving. Green = You are dangerously low or out of stock.
