Otto, Why do you need the 11.123 IN ord? Is it a customer requirement that they want to see this number on their order and not M123? Can they see both? Do you take the M123 and ship it directly from stock without any additional operations? If you do some additional operations, do you want to capture the information? Are you planning (MPS/MRP/DRP/CAP)? Using Lot and/or container control? Do you care about sales history? Knowing this information will help in coming up with a solution. Arthur B.

Otto Hason Sent: Monday, February 25, 2002 2:05 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Alternate items BPCS 6.0.04 We need to have an item nr. in ORD according to our customer (e.g. 11.123) - it is material, not manufactured item. In INV, BOM we have the same item with different item nr. (e.g. M123). We need this "M" on the beginning because of other non-BPCS tasks. Any idea how to handle it?
