Use A Non-Stocked Item As A Planned Material

Technote (FAQ)


Question

Is it possible to select a non-stocked item from Item Master on the Plans/Materials tab in Work Order Tracking?

Cause

In Work Order Tracking, there are valid items in Item Master, but they are not associated to a Storeroom. These are considered non-stocked items and cannot be selected in any look-up.

Answer

Users are not able to select valid items that are not associated to a Storeroom. This is not a bug. It is important to note that the supported functionality of being able to record "ad hoc" materials on a Work Order is counter-intuitive to planning ad-hoc materials on a Work Order. In this regard, an "ad-hoc" material or non-stocked material can be used on the Actuals tab of a Work Order.
