Yes, we have considered using the user hold. But we use it also to prevent export shipments for the same reason, plus for some other hold reasons, all of which the Order Coordinator knows about and can control. So they would know, for example, that the export hold can come off, but some other type of hold still remains - and there is just one hold field for both.

But the Quality Holds are more much numerous and shorter in duration (and of course critical), so the logical thing to do is to put that type of control in the hands of the Quality people. With a separate hold field.

So I'm looking for an alternate method. And the Margin Hold seems to be available. How does it work?

Have you considered a user hold? We use that field to prevent export
shipments of items that are not set up for export documentation.

We are on BPCS 8.3

Trying to figure out if it makes sense to use the Margin Hold field in
ECH to record Quality holds on selected finished machines, to protect us
from shipping that product.

We do not currently use the margin hold, and do not plan to.

What processes are generated by that hold? And how is the desired
margin level specified?

Anything else we should consider?
