Hmmmm.  I'd just keep barrels or whatever of it in inventory, and fill the
bottles as required.   Label it from the lot# on the barrel.  Do they HAVE
to stock the bottles already filled?   This might do better as a procedural
change.  It would add flexibility to shipping, and probably improve
turnover of inventory also.  I mean, if no one orders the 10ml sizes for a
while, those could go "stale".

As you know from working with us at Fleetwood, sometimes what we have to do
in order to improve overall functionality is change HOW we do it.

   Yea, the difference is they already have the multiple qtys in
stock...they
   may have 10 2 ml bottles, and 10 5 ml bottles, and 10 10 ml bottles.
when
   the customer calls and wants 4 or 5 ml they need to know what they have
in
   stock, and in what size bottles...

   they do not want to re-aliquot per order....



   thanks



   jeff

     Jeff, you probably won't like this, but we do this here.  How we do it
     is
     we sell it by the inch (or ml in this case).  And we charge by the
inch.
     We cut it to length, box or bag it (depending on the part), and charge
     for
     what was shipped.

     It works OK, the customer orders how much he/she wants, and
     shipping/packout handles it.  Pricing is no problem, they pay for what
     they
     get.

     I don't see how lot control would be impacted doing that scenario,
     either.

         I am working with a customer that has a pkg situation.   they sell
     the
         same item no. in various pkgs, ie 1 ml, 5 ml, 10, ml etc....
they
     also
         have lot control and are using all 10 characters,  any ideas of
how
     we
     can
         defferientiate the pkg size would be appreciated....additional
part
     number
         is not an option....we'd like to avoid using locations as pkg
     info......

         any ideas would be welcome...an integrator solutions with a tag
     along
     file
         to SLQNTY  sounds like a lot of wrap code, we'd like to avoid....

         If you have solved this or have ideas, we'd like to hear from
     you....

         thanks
