WOP - keep qty allocated for shortage items
When a "Pick Kit" operation is not fully satisfied (for example, qty needed for a component is 12 and qty of 9 was reported as pulled), Elliott assumes that only 9 are needed and release the remaining 3 allocated. I understand that there is a situation that there is no need for the remaining 3 and in this case the allocation should be released. My experience shows that in all the scenarios that I have been involved with, the allocation must remain. I am using a "shortage report" that Roger developed but the ATP is wrong and the purchasing decisions become extremely difficult to manage.
Losing the allocation visibility for pulled/posted kit shortages creates only a partial view of material needed when planning.
All allocations need to known when looking at any part and making planning action decisions.
