Consignment Hardware & Vantage 5.1

We have been discussing the pros & cons of setting up a hardware
consignment inventory. One con we see right away is getting the
hardware costs to the job. From what I understand of a consignment
inventory, purchase orders will need to be made for hardware after it
is consummed. I was wondering if anybody out here is using
consigment inventory, how it is working, and how you manage to get
the costs from consignment through inventory to the job.

Thanks
