Hello everyone! This is my first post, I’m new to Vantage, please excuse any incorrect terminology.
We have an issue on setting up sub-assembly part, which is purchased, invoiced, but we don’t ship it physically. It gets consumed by another part.
Reason behind it is that customer wants us to hold certain amount of stock of part in non-painted state. When they are ready to order a specific colour (top level part) we raise another demand. We have another part for that which has a paint operation and the part in question as material.
The problem we are having is when raising demand for the painted top level part, if also the non-painted part isn’t finished and booked to stock, the MRP will suggest to make more non-painted parts.
I’m not sure how to tackle this problem. Few questions arise.
- Would disabling “process MRP” on non-painted part solve the problem?
- How can we sell or invoice non-painted part, but not ship at the same time, so it stays in stock until ready to be consumed by top level part?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
