Miscellaneous shipment entry?

1. Your sales people want to ship a packed up display booth to a trade show. (Non-inventory items)

2. You've inspect/fail, DMR/rejected a PO receipt and the wonderful (lame!) Vantage QC process has just made the inventory systemically disappear that you want to return to vendor for credit.... Inventory is gone so you get an RMA# from the vendor, hit them with the debit memo, enter a replacement PO & do a Misc Shipment of the physically existing but systemically gone RTV material.

Basically a way to do any kind of shipment of non-systemic inventory.

Hi,



I've just been looking at the help for "miscellaneous shipment entry".

Can anybody give me an example?



Thanks,



Bruce
We did use it on occasion where we have a shortage of fixings on site

It is just a way of printing a delivery note and does not alter inventory/costings or anything like that.

It can get you in a real mess if you use it for anything other than non quantity bearing parts and we now have better processes in place.

I am sure it may have valid uses but it's a dangerous tool to give a dispatch department as it can be seen as an "easy" way to ship something outside of the correct procedure

David,

When you say "get you into a real mess" do you mean that items that
should be shipped from a "Customer Shipment Entry" get shipped with a
Miscellaneous and don't get withdrawn (as it should be), or do you
mean that you have experienced inventory activity when using a
Miscellaneous for shipping inventory parts?

Could you elaborate a little on your better process.

We have recently begun using the Miscellaneous Pack list for items
that could not be shipped with the SO, yet do not occur on a Sales
Order line. They are a component of a Sales Order line (in a Job) and
therefore tracking is lost when the SO line ships (dollars are
accounted for with the original shipment). The parts follow later. We
enter an expected shipdate in a Miscellaneous Pack and have a
"ShipVia" called "Back Order". When the item actually ships, the Ship
Via is changed. This allows us to create a BAQ for back order tracking.
Still looking for a better process.

Thanks,

Dave
