Here is a quick, half baked idea. Create an MO with the finished item received and component item issued are the same. The trick is the finished item is in whse 1 and the component item is in whse 2. Then when you ship from 2 you perform and IP (issue) the component out of whse 1. When the truck gets to whse 2 enter the RM (receipt) into whse 1. The inventory usages should be OK, sales OK and at a quick glance I don't see a cost impact. The back order quantity is the unfulfilled quantity on the MO. The MO also has a due date if that helps.

The big problem is back orders. Since we do not ship the order, we can't back order. In an ideal world we would have a MAPICS option for an internal order, that we could "process" right from the picklist like any order. EXCEPT, the shipping would create a TW rather than an SA. We do not want to inflate sales with additional SA transactions (thus the transfer). Customer orders and order picklist are a great tool for our shipping personnel to work with. (Today the order is simply removed after the initial shipment, and shipping works from a marked up copy of the picklist to try and satisfy backorders). Any creative schemes to use MAPICS to help us address this situation more effectively?? (It seems like a lot of work, but the best I could come up with was to transfer what we can transfer, then have someone go back into the order and delete the line items that shipped, and change the quantity for partial shipments, leaving the order open until it was satisfied.) Had hoped someone else may have found a better solution? Thanks Roger Blocher TECH International I.S.
