For planning purposes BPCS uses the nettable field (LNETW) in the warehouse
master file (IWM) to determine if inventory is available.  It will still
show on the inventory screens as on hand, but a value equal to the amount in
the non-nettable warehouse will appear in the non-nettable field.

Is there a way to code either a warehouse or a location as being "Not in
Inventory" ?

We have material that has been rejected by incoming inspection.  It is
moved to a separate warehouse pending a return to the vendor.  This could
take several days or in certain cases several months.

When someone looks at the part in material status inquiry, the program
includes the rejected material as 'On Hand".    Which they consider that
misleading as the material is not available for production.

Thanks
