An undocumented feature of BPCS is that it has Business Rules that can be
ignored various places, without telling us which rules will be ignored where.
We changed the inventory effects to only track last date of activity on
activity that actually consumed parts in the manufacture and shipment to
customer needs. We did not want adjustments to correct inventory counts,
or transfers from one warehouse to another in our company to update last
activity date on the overall item.
Then we discovered that INV650 input of Physical Inventory Tags, ignores
our Business Rule Tailoring change and updates last date of activity to
agree with when we had the physical inventory, instead of last date being
what we defined as activity.
