You've done a pretty good job of describing what the MAPICS ISL module

Additionally, it interfaces with MRP, keeps history and generates

From the manual:

"ISL/MISL introduces the 'transfer' order. This type of order can be
created directly from
MRP Review and Approve with release functionality. Or you can directly
create and release
within the ISL/MISL application. These InterSite transfer orders can be
sent to any MAPICS
defined planning warehouse.
ISL/MISL allows your planning warehouses to define customer/supplier
relationships with
each other. The number of manufacturing and distribution enterprises
that can make use of
ISL/MISL is quite large and varied."

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Creating and processing "internal" customer
orders(warehouse to warehouse)

"Today" we enter an order in COM for items to be transferred to another
warehouse, but instead of shipping the order, we do a warehouse transfer
to move the items.

The big problem is back orders.  Since we do not ship the order, we
can't back order.  In an ideal world we would have a MAPICS option for
an internal order, that we could "process" right from the picklist like
any order. EXCEPT, the shipping would create a TW rather than an SA.  We
do not want to inflate sales with additional  SA transactions (thus the
transfer).  Customer orders and order picklist are a great tool for our
shipping personnel to work with.  (Today the order is simply removed
after the initial shipment, and shipping works from a marked up copy of
the picklist to try and satisfy backorders).

Any creative schemes to use MAPICS to help us address this situation
more effectively?? (It seems like a lot of work, but the best I could
come up with was to transfer what we can transfer, then have someone go
back into the order and delete the line items that shipped, and change
the quantity for partial shipments, leaving the order open until it was
satisfied.)  Had hoped someone else  may have found a better solution?
