I work for a fairly large manufacturing company which is getting ready
to introduce a new item which we think can best be handled by the use of
kits. We are on BPCS 5.1 which we century dated ourselves using the
Focus/2000 product.

We have no experience with kits and very little documentation to go on.
My question is: What inventory transactions should we expect to see
regarding both the parent (kit) and component children? Our kit parent
is composed of one drum of component child "A" and one drum of component
child "B". So, when we ship confirm a quantity of one kit parent, what
inventory transactions should I see in the ITH file?

The reason I am asking this question is that I have been running tests
on our development AS/400, and I have been getting conflicting results.
During my first test, I could have sworn that I saw a positive "="
transaction and a negative "B" transaction for the parent, and a
negative "=" for each component. On subsequent tests, I have been
seeing only a negative "B" transaction for the parent. I do note that
we "placed" some parent items in inventory for another reason; I
searched the BPCS-L archive for posts regarding kits, and reading these
has me thinking that by placing some parent items in inventory, we
interfered with "normal" kit processing and this is why no inventory
transactions were made for the component children.

Any information you provide on this topic will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
