[OT] Perishable Tooling

Hi, all:

I've been asked to "fish" for ideas about keeping perishable tooling in
inventory so we can keep track of it. Accounting doesn't want it to be an
asset, but we do want to know how much it is costing. Here are some

Are the parts in the part master, with a separate part class and
non-nettable bins?
Are they listed in the BOMs?
Are they issued to jobs?
Is there any way to issue them to "people" or "machines?"

Answer off list, if needed, but inquiring minds want to know how others are
handling this.

Thanks in advance,
