    Is anyone willing to share their process for handling temporary manufacturer item back-orders?

     

    Currently we basically do a full conversion for items that are on a lengthy back-order. Recently, we've had some back-order items that were thought to have a lengthy back-order, but then came back within days or a week of us doing a conversion. It's a lot of work as some of the items are in several pars and store rooms and on many templates.

     

    Is a "temporary" conversion the only solution or is there a way for Lawson to divert orders? I believe in the past we've explored using a "replace with" feature on the PO13 but I believe differences in UOM became a problem as many of our approved temporary replacements are not set up the same.

     

    Any insight you might have would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Natalie,

    I thought that's what the replacement items field was for in IC11, but I've never had a chance to use it since I was put into this analyst position. If someone could expound on the details of how it works, that would be great.

    I'd love to hear - for subs with same UOM conversions, we manually change part number and pricing on the PO and let it look like a pricing issue with inventory. Items with completely different UOMs - we cancel the line and add a special to expense at the bottom of the PO. Inventory has to do a negative IC21 from expense to bring the correct counts in.

    It's a mess. I'd love to see what others do.

    We build a new item and add "SUB FOR #1234" in Description2. Add to inventory and pars. Material Handlers print labels for their pars. Inactivate the sub after the manufacturer BO is over and all sub stock has been depleted.

    The Replacement Item field works great in RQC/RQ10 but not for par replenishment through MSCM or IC83.
