As currently designed, the Takeoff TBD process utilizes P44H604 Supplier Assignment field Assignment Status (ASNSTS) set equal to 2 to establish both the "Place holder" supplier and also the suppliers eligible for assignment of the actual Takeoff via the Assign Supplier row exit from P44H711 - Lot Start Workfile Review. Upon taking the row exit, P44H704 - Supplier on the Fly is used to select/assign the actual supplier to the TBD Takeoff.
In the TBD Bid Contract process, only suppliers set w/ ASNSTS = 1 will be displayed and available for assignment of the TBD Bid Contract. Currently Supplier Assignment records for TBD Takeoffs are set with ASNSTS = 2 in order to then display in the P44H704 as available to assign the Takeoff. This is one of the differences between the current Bid Contract and Takeoff TBD processes.
Another difference is how the "placeholder" or TBD Supplier is designated. In a Bid Contract, there is a header form where the TBD Supplier check box exists. Checking this box along with checking the Preferred Supplier check box also on the header will designate the supplier on this Bid Contract as only the TBD Placeholder Supplier. These check boxes do not exist for a Takeoff and so Supplier Assignment field ASNSTS = 2 is set to designate this supplier as the TBD or Placeholder Supplier on the TBD Takeoff.
There have been a few bugs/issues with TBD Takeoffs, in part due to these differences, and as a result of this, an enhancement request has been created to request that the TBD Takeoff process be changed so that it more closely mimic the set up and processing of TBD Bid Contracts.
The enhancement request is to change the TBD Takeoff process to use Supplier Assignment ASNSTS value of 2 for the TBD placeholder supplier only and then use Supplier Assignment ASNSTS = 1 for the other suppliers eligible for the TBD Take Off to be assigned.
