Hello All,

Were on an old version of BPCS (6.0.2) and I was posed a question from one of our planners, that I was hoping someone on this list could give me suggestions on how to go about doing it.

There is going to be a prebuild of extra inventory this year. We do not want this inventory to be netted out in BPCS MRP in future planning periods. The thought was to create a transfer order that matches exactly to the pre build production and subsequent prebuild inventory. The transfer order would allocate against the prebuild inventory. Here is the desired scenario:

Production/Inv +150 (50 prebuild)
Customer orders -25
Transfer order -50
Qty available to plan +75

Without the transfer order, +125 are netted in MRP planning and the prebuild disappears.

Production/Inv +150 (50 prebuild)
Customer orders -25
Qty available to plan +125

The transfer order would be created to ship from 37 to a non-nettable warehouse. The transfer order would never be received or shipped. It would be reduced as the inventory was sold off against future customer orders tagged as prebuild.
