I copied some text out of the MAPICS IM manual to help shed some light with your question. Floor stock considerations The Floor Stock Code field in the Item Balance file contains U for uncontrolled floor stock items or C for controlled floor stock items. Uncontrolled floor stock items tend to be low cost parts such as screws, nuts, and rivets. They are issued to the shop floor in bulk with a Miscellaneous Issue transaction and used to satisfy the needs of multiple manufacturing orders. The cost of uncontrolled floor stock components is included in the manufacturing order’s material cost. The usage of uncontrolled floor stock components is accounted for during order release by the system generated IX transaction. You designate an item as controlled floor stock if you want to use backflushing logic to relieve component inventory when the parent item is received from production. Controlled floor stock items may be found in either a discrete or repetitive manufacturing environment. The cost of controlled floor stock components is included in the manufacturing order’s material cost. Processing of floor stock items is discussed in “Inventory management functions” on page 2-15.
