Making 3 parts out of 1 part, Ver 6.1

Could make the ring a subassembly, that pulls to the cut pieces at 0.33 QPA,
and set it to pull as assembly.

Then when you launch a job for 150 pieces / segments, you'll get a level 0 of
150 pcs, with a level 1 of 50 pcs.

How about playing with U/M's so you receive 'sets of 3' into inventory? You
can then use a phantom BOM level to convert the 'sets of 3' in inventory to
the 3 units individual units called for in your assembly BOMs and Dwgs.

Personally, I'd avoid that kind of needless complexity and just patiently
teach the people involved that they ARE making and receiving 3 pieces.

three pieces half way through the manufacturing process. The BOM's and the
prints all state that three pieces are required during assembly. We really
don't want to change the prints and the BOM's but it confuses the plant to
cut a job for fifty and have 150 pieces to put in inventory.

How do you handle this?
