Topic:   Choosing an alternate part within a Work order

By: SimonePosted on: Mar 20 2019 at 05:08:08 AM
Before launching a work order, or during its production, I had always been taking advantage of taking, from the warehouse, components very similar to the ones in a BOM, because of their greater availability, or in lack of the expected ones (e.g. a 2,21K resistor instead of a 2,2K).

Since MiniMRP does not seem to offer the possibility to choose an alternate part before launching a work order (unless one modifies the assembly list), I suggest - hopefully in a close upgrade - to foresee that one could replace some components directly from the BOM of a work order, wether in progress or not. The previously allocated/issued material shuld be automatically reloaded into the inventory, and the new items allocated/issued immediately.

I just wanted to follow up on this to see if there has been any effort to incorporate a way to select alternates for a single work order. Thanks!

Sorry. No.

Even if we did allow it then that would change the assembly's parts list affecting all future work orders.

So. Sorry. This we feel is too much complexity for a 'Mini' mrp.
