Inventory Availability & Visibility

Thanks to all for the input and thanks Charlie for your insight. I believe this solution seems to be the simplest. I'll tackle it from that angle.

Hi All,
I'm using Vantage 6.10 (without the Quality Module) in an injection molding operation. Currently parts are set to auto-receive to a warehouse bin when the molding is done. We sometimes (not always) need to sort parts or perform a secondary process before they can be issued to a customer order. I need some advice on the best way to show the parts as being molded and available to satisfy customer requirements but not yet in inventory. I'd like to keep it as simple as possible. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

You could create a new, variant part number for the quality checked part
and, when the original finished part needs this check, you could do an
inventory conversion, adjusting the quantity of original parts to the
quality checked part number.

Hi All,
I'm using Vantage 6.10 (without the Quality Module) in an injection molding
operation. Currently parts are set to auto-receive to a warehouse bin when
the molding is done. We sometimes (not always) need to sort parts or perform
a secondary process before they can be issued to a customer order. I need
some advice on the best way to show the parts as being molded and available
to satisfy customer requirements but not yet in inventory. I'd like to keep
it as simple as possible. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

How about a separate wharehouse? We use a separate warehouse for our showroom items and then move them back to our main wharehouse when we are ready to sell it.

Hi All,
I'm using Vantage 6.10 (without the Quality Module) in an injection molding operation. Currently parts are set to auto-receive to a warehouse bin when the molding is done. We sometimes (not always) need to sort parts or perform a secondary process before they can be issued to a customer order. I need some advice on the best way to show the parts as being molded and available to satisfy customer requirements but not yet in inventory. I'd like to keep it as simple as possible. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

The problem is that the job is not completed. Unless you are going to
use two separate jobs in which case you would need two separate finished
part numbers. One for the finished part and one for the unfinished part
(or the part that requires secondary work).

Seems like a lot of work.



A job status report that shows all of the open operations (and quantity
completed) would be the best bet. Much like the job tracker except
printed (or previewed) that only shows the open operations on a job. If
he is pretty much a molding operation, there won't be too many ops in
the method.
