We would love to consolidate our BOMs and use the mulit-operation feature, but every transation for the production order changes the availability of the FINAL inventory ID of the BOM.
You can even complete a move of a BOM with no items in stock if the move contains only a phantom! It bypasses any critical material requirements.
What I would love to happen is the phantom item be added as a stock item when it's BOM is completed, even when that is an operation on a larger production order.
This would not only fix the bypass bug, but we often have items sit around for a long time partially complete. This would make if incredibly easier to see what we actually have in stock. 'In-progress' Prod. Orders aren't' enough because it does not tell you what step they are on...ie, what is actually on hand.
This also makes multi-operation BOM's with outsides services pretty useless. When we 'Ship to Vendor', the system has us shipping the completed item...but we obviously don't have the item yet, since the Production has not been completed on it.
Thank you for the consideration.
