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.
This project is completed and will be in the next Elliott update. Please see the following URL for more details: http://support.elliott.com/knowledgebase/articles/1185577-feature-create-material-shortage-tracking-with-p
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.
