There is a requirement to add a processing option that will allow the FROM and TO lot status codes (LOTS) on the Item Location Records (F41021) to remain unchanged during an inventory transfer. Prior to Bug 10905630: LOT STATUS UPDATED THROUGH AN - SAR: 7863765 clients could use P4113 Processing Option 5 on the Process Tab = 1 (Do not Default the Lot Status from the From location to the To location) to allow a transfer from a held location to a location not on hold. Bug 10905630 changed the P4113 Processing Option 5. According to the Final Disposition for Bug 10905630, when this processing option is set to 1, the TO location hold code will only be used in the case where we have transfer between two held lots. When a transfer is done from a held lot to a non-held lot, always the held lot status is used regardless of the processing options. Business case: P4113 is considered to describe the business case but the same issue occurs when using R47121. Having 30 percent of the inventory locations (F41021 records) on hold for purposes of QA, while an item is on QA hold it is not available for the MRP program to use when planning customer orders. When the QA process is done, the P4113 Inventory Transfer program is used to move from QA (Hold Location) to Warehouse (non Hold Location). As a result of the change in Bug 10905630, if only 1 item in a QA location is transferred to a location with 500 items, the result of the transfer is that 501 items are now on hold and unavailable to MRP. This causes MRP to think there are no good parts available to fill an order. Consequently, the MRP system directs purchasing to create a new purchase order for 501 items. The unnecessary purchase order will then require the company to pay an expedite fee to the vendor in order to supply materials in time to fulfill the promised delivery dates to their customers. It is standard practice in manufacturing to designate locations as Hold locations.
