Good morning ladies and gentlemen.
If y’all could help me think this out, and maybe fill in some gaps in my knowledge, I’d be very grateful.
Here is the situation.
We currently produce lots of a product, and they are assigned to a (Dynamic)PCID.
(For context, these are Pallets(PCID) of Rolls(Lots) wrapped and sold as a unit.)
When we ship them, we ship the entire PCID, and then invoice. All is good there
and works as expected.
The problem I’ve been asked to address, is returns (RMA).
At that point, the PCIDs have collapsed, and are archived to history.
We would like to reuse the PCIDs that shipped to receive the material back to. (Only for a return.)
(Currently, we are having to create new ones, and re-label the product.)
Is there a way when returning material, we can have that PCID moved back from the archive to be used again?
---->If not, I’ve found I can recreate the PCID. Is there any problem with that when it invoices again?
This functionality does not have to be “baked in”, as I will be automating it anyway.
I can code it, but I need to follow the rules of the system so I don’t break anything, or have unintended consequences.
I’m open to any feedback, as well as modifications to the process, if there is a better business practice.
Thank you all in advance,
