We currently use the Scrap Adder feature on Jobs when adding material required that does not match the total job qty.
i.e. Job for 10 assemblies but I only need 2 of a certain part that will cater for the complete qty of 10.
We set the Qty per to 0 and put 2 in the Scrap Adder field.
If the part is in stock - not a problem and I can go ahead and Pick 2 as per the requirement.
However if the part is not in stock it does not push through to MRP and show as a requirement to purchase? Why would this be?
This is an example…Line 18 on the BOM.
