Hi Paul,
 
What we do to mark the lots with the facility where they are created is the 
following:
Every night we schedule a job that checks from the lots that are created that 
day in which facility the lot is created. The way we do this is by retrieving 
the facility of the warehouse where the 1st transaction of a lot took place. 
This facility is written into the Manufacturer field of the lot master (LNMGR 
from ILN).
 
Example:
On 4th of Dec 100 KG of Lot ABC123 from item DEF created on Production 
Reporting in Warehouse SF.
In Transaction History (file ITH) you will find the following record:
Tdate         Ttype   Lot      Item  Qty  Whse
20061204      PR      ABC123   DEF   100  SF
 
In Warehouse Master (IWM) the facility from whse SF is retrieved. The 
Manufacturer field in Lot Master record (ILN) from lot ABC123 is updated with 
the facility. 
 
With this solution we can still use standard BPCS lot creation logic like YYMM 
+ 6 digit sequence number and we can trace the source facility of a lot even 
when the lot is transferred from one facility the the other.

Harold Swaanen
