Noting part minimum on hand due to particular reason

Thanks for your reply Miguel.

I especially like your idea of having users select a code.  This will allow categorization.  Then we'll have a free form description so that they can note to their hearts delight :)  Also we'll provide a timestamp for when it was reviewed.  I think we'll put these on the Part Plant tab since different plants have different safety stock / moh needs. 

Thanks,
Nancy

Good Morning,


I have a request from a manager to provide a means of noting a part / part plant record for the reason why there is a minimum on hand requirement (e.g., promise to customer to keep in stock for xx years, etc.).  This will help when slow moving stock or concerns about obsolete stock come up.


Anyone have any recommendations or thoughts on this?  Anyone doing anything like this?


Thanks,

nancy


We have UD fields with UserCodes as a drop down.  We also have text boxes under the part Master > Reporting > Comments > Purchasing.
