Entering Non-Stock Materials on Work Order Plans

Technote (FAQ)


Is there a way to enter a Direct-Issue, Non-Stock Material item type from a Storeroom on the Plans tab in Work Order Tracking?


The User is not able to select material item types on the Plans tab in Work Order Tracking.


It is not possible to use a Direct Issue material (that is currently not in the Storeroom, but can be ordered from Vendor) on the Plans tab of a Work Order.

This scenario is not supported, and is not a bug. Please bear in mind that the functionality of being able to record "ad hoc" materials on a Work Order is counter-intuitive to planning materials that will be issued and/or used on a Work Order. As long as there has been a PO and receipt for a material, it can be entered on the Actuals tab for a Work Order.
