Service parts that have the same item number as production BOM 
requirements are not a problem. The Facility Planning record (CIC) is 
setup to accept both dependent and independent demand (Requirements code = 
S). To know what requirements have come from Customer Orders for Service 
Orders, just look at the MRP planning screen (MRP300) for the item and you 
will see that requirements for Manufacturing Orders have an (M) 
designation and requirements for Customer Orders will have a (C) 
designation. For further detail, simply "peg" the requirements by pressing 
F13.  Good luck.

Re: [BPCS-L] Service Parts

The answer to this is obvious: you need to have different item numbers. 
item number is the u nique key field. There is no way around it.

Subject: [BPCS-L] Service Parts

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 
for duplicate item numbers.

Thanks in advance.
