Subject: [BPCS-L] Item Substitution

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 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,
