My company deals in textile manufacturing with production facilities in several US and foreign locations. My dilemma: We need the ability to substitute based upon manufacturing costs - lowest to highest. We set up substitution records based upon costs however, these items are 'hot' and rarely in stock at order entry time. Allocations are run for the order(s) as a matter of course. Since there is no stock...no allocation records can be built. Our Order Service folks have indicated that if the allocation program is re-run for the orders once there is stock available, the substitution scenario does not work properly and cost info is skewed as the entered item seems to be the selling item. Chicago is telling us this functionality may be in a future release of BPCS but, we need help now. Has anyone worked with a similar situation and, if so, how horrible are the modifications required? Thanks for any assistance, Deb Newcomb-Burke IT Director Alba-Waldensian, Inc.
