1 purchased part multi stocked parts?

Gary is correct: APM provides the capability of producing multiple end parts on a single job. However, it is a function very much designed to combine existing jobs (sharing very similar methods) opportunistically by planner schedulers (in order to save multiple repeated - otherwise single shareable - set ups).

In your case, you would have to set up Parts 1,2,3 & 4 as fabricated parts (all with common OP details - each representing 1/4 of the true disassy cycle time) with BOMs requiring .25 per of Purchased Part A.

Create/schedule equivalent qty Jobs for Parts 1,2,3 &4. Then immediately combine the Jobs into one (before releasing and traveler printing).

You can not unfortunately, set this up permanently via a single Part master rev MoM record. You can set it up as 5 records (Parts, 1,2,3,4 & A) and then 'remember' that 1,2,3,4 are to be combined into a single job.

I never tried it, but (assuming the system may allow it) a better alternative might be to create a precombined job (for parts 1,2,3 & 4) and then save it as a Template Job for repetitive use.

The advanced production module has' job parts' which deals with this.

I have an interesting issue that I was wondering if anyone has dealt
with or
if anyone has any ideas.

We have some parts that we buy from a supplier with one part number and
when it comes in house we take it apart and now it multiply part numbers
in
stock. I need to come up with a way of dealing with these parts. Right
now
it is a manual process; the parts come in, a job get made to have it
taken
apart, than manual quantity and cost adjustments get made so that now
the
one part has become multiples.

Basically like this:

1 part A is purchased from the supplier, than disassembled

Now we have 1 of each of parts: 1, 2, 3 and 4 and no part A

Any ideas???
