I have checked the manual about “Default Material Request Type” but that has different options to those in the screens. The available types are Purchase,Issue,Transfer,Manufacture. I am looking for some clarity on which is which (the version in the manual is good, but I don’t know which ones went where in the updated version).
I have a series of subBOM’s which mimic our real processes. All raw materials are issued from mainStore to various subWH’s/processPlants. They process and return goods to mainStore.
The P/O- is triggered when reorder level is reached on top level BOM.
I set up a P/O- to incl. MultiLevel BOM. The material issues ask for source/targets W/H’s for all the subBOM’s at once.
If the BOM’s are set up in such a way that they have a default warehouse how can I either group the material issues to match/follow those instead of having to cross-check each one?
Can I customise the STE- to show/include the BOM name for the items? and if so, how do I do that?
The STE can also make material request if you need.
I will re-check the thread you mention for info.(I read it before but I didn’t have enough understanding of the method then)
I have the part you mentioned above working - I draw the overall materials from the top level BOM, and it populates the standard version of the STE-.
My slight complexity is with the target warehouses. Not all of the sub-BOM’s are processed at the same warehouse, so if I had the parent_BOM in an extra column of the STE- report Table, then it would be easier to see which W/H should be the target for the material transfer.
I have tried to do a “customise form” on the Stock Detail Entry, but I am not doing it right and it shows me either the top-level BOM(same as the one above the tableList), or a bottom-level stock code (same as the line for the item_code), instead of the mid-level(sub-BOM) one I that am hoping for.
