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.

Thanks.
