Thanks for the help, everybody.  In this case, everything was coded
correctly ("P" for purchased, with a 'PURCHASED' literal on the report, no
bill, no routing...all dots lined up nicely) but the shop order was
generated by mistake - at which point it disappeared from all the expedite
reports.  And yeah - a modification to one of the screen programs will
preclude (or at least reduce) the errors.

Hi Rob,

I use the "Item Type" field on the Item Master (IIM) and Facility Master
(CIC)  to separate purchased items from manufacturing items for many
in-house programs.  We run a report (simple query) nightly for our Engineers
listing all parts w/ manufactured item types missing bill of materials (MBM)
and/or routings (FRT) -- visa versa for purchased items...  In most cases,
our manufactured parts should have a bill of material and routing and our
purchased parts shouldn't have either.  Since your MRP is home-grown, you
may not populate the MBM or FRT unless you have BPCS Cost module...  Good
luck.

This question stems from a recent problem.  We're on 4.05CD.

Recently, an item was entered on a customer order.  It was coded as a
purchased item, but a shop order was keyed by mistake.  The item then
disappeared from our home-grown MRP system's reports, since the demand had
been met.

Is there a place, in BPCS, where I can preclude placing the 'wrong' type of
order?  In other words, if it's coded as a purchased item, will the system
tell me and not allow (or at least flag as an error) a shop order?

Thanks - Rob
