Goal

On : 12.1.2 version, WIP Costing

An Inventory Item exists in Inventory Organization and has FIFO layer cost. The item uses both asset and non-asset subinventories.
We allow transfers from asset to non-asset for select individuals.

When receiving inventory items into the non-asset subinventories, the value is 0 (as expected).
When transfer, issue, receive or ship these inventory items to or from this non-asset subinventory the distribution is 0 (again, as expected).

However, when performing a WIP Material Transaction and issue these inventory items to standard WIP job from a non-asset subinventory, a distribution is created equal to the layer cost of the item. Since these items reside in the non-asset subinventory and they are issued to an WIP job, shouldn't the distribution for this transaction be 0? Or no distribution at all or as similar to subinventory transfer.
