2 Replies and 1027 Views IC81 Non-Stock Best Practice  1027  2 Started by  Neil Allen Looking to see if there's a better way to load non-stock items to IC81.  Currently non-stocks are loaded in IC11 with both EA and BX for example.  With EA being the stock UOM and BX being the BUOM for example.  This requires us to pull out all of the items and assign a tracking flag of 2 to the BUOM.  This allows the item to be loaded to IC81 but also allows users to change the UOM since both are valid UOM.  We're hoping there's a better way to do this.  Is there

Has anyone made it do so  Or somehow otherwise identify PO lines without creating a separate inventory loc on IC02

Right now if multiple requisitions come in for the same item, PO100 will place that item on the same PO but keep them separated so we can see the sources for easy delivery. However, is it possible to combine the lines and still have the put away tickets separated  For example, let's say we have an item with a packaging string EA 1/BX 10. Two par locations(A and B) have a par of 5 EA because it's a slow mover but it just so happens that both floors ran o...
