Bob, we did that in R3 thru R6, and set up the consignment items to be stored in a separate whse, then TW'd them into the production whse when the parts were moved to be consumed. The consignment whse parts had onhands but no cost, the production whse had costs.

We also did some neat stuff for some of the consignment items by making them uncontrolled floor stock in the production whse. That let them be 'dollar charged' to the orders while not carrying them on hand. It caused some grief for the buyers, but making then a different planner helped. You could just ignore those.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Consignment Inventory

Our company is considering setting up consignment inventory for packaging materials. Is anybody using MAPICS with consignment inventory? (Sorry, but it will probably always be MAPICS to me.) We'd be interested in how you have set it up so that the data flows well through the system and so that costs and inventory values are correct - considering that these items would have zero cost as long as they are on consignment, but would have a non-zero cost as soon as they are put into use. We're using R6 in 3 environments and R7 in 1 environment.
