If the service part and the production part have the same item number are
they, in terms of form, fit and function, exactly the same?

Is the reason for considering them as different their demand source -
production demand comes from the bill of material and service demand coming
directly from a sales order?

Hi All,

Does any have any ideas of how we could manage service parts with BPCS
instead of creating an entire new system?  Our problem is that a service
item and a production item has the same item number and we need a way to
tell the difference.  We though of using item type but IIM does not allow
for duplicate item numbers.

Thanks in advance.
