6.1 - Issue material to job "on the fly" button

There was a previous thread discussing the frustration with the
process of issuing material to a job "on the fly". The normal process
of unengineering, adding the material, re-engineering, opening the
issue material screen and issuing the material is cumbersome for
custom shops. Our jobs are released to the floor at about 80%
complete. The nuts and bolts are selected during the assembly process.

We are talking to Vantage about custom programming to create a "Add
Material" button on the job material list accessed from the Issue
Material screen. If you are interested in a similar feature and would
like to approach Vantage as a consortium to share the design costs,
contact me off line and we can discuss the project scope.
