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. Frederick C. Davy, CPIM, PMP Business Systems Analyst Interface Solution, Inc.

The item number is the u nique key field. There is no way around it.

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.
