We currently do lot testing on various products. Some parts require us to send samples from production to an outside test house and pay a fee. Currently we create POs that aren’t tied to the job. This causes trouble linking costs to specific jobs and we are looking for a way to properly capture these costs so they are tied to the job. We also sometimes are able to do testing in house but have to send it outside due to workload.
I was planning to create lot testing part numbers and put them in the BOM of the parts that require lot testing. I would enter the part as fixed quantity so that it wouldn’t vary with the quantity produced. Any suggestions on whether this is the best way to handle this is appreciated.
