Customer has ER request for Use Alternate Part Group at Material Issue to Work Order


Customer has ER request for Use Alternate Part Group at Material Issue to Work Order

1. Enhancement Request Description
I would like to use the alternate part group at material issue to a work order. The functionality should allow 1 way and 2 way interchangeable parts from the alternate part group to be issued to the work order in place of any other 1 way or 2 way part on the alternate part group. This will allow for substitute issuing based on the alt. part group without having to change the material requested on the work order. This is not a duplicate of ER 28973342. It is closely related, but it is not a duplicate.

2. Business Need
Allow Engineering approved alternate parts to be installed without added steps that are not value added. The non value added steps are 1) open the work order, 2) add a request for part456, 3) remove the request for part123, and 4) then issue part456.
3. How often would users make use of this new functionality. Daily

4.Provide a example of a business scenario supported by this enhancement.
This is highly needed by our client since their main supplier will fulfill orders based on sub sustainability rules in the Supply system. That is, the client orders part123, however Supply can ship part456 if the rules allows. Now, part456 can be related to part123 in inventory item relationships and be received on a PO that allows for substitute receipts. However, once in inventory, it cannot be used to fulfill the issue request from the work order for par123.

5. Share any suggestions on how the product can be changed to achieve the desired result.
The relationships can be defined in the alt. part group and referenced when issuing the part. Use those lists should be part of the solution.  

6. What is the benefit to your organization from implementation of this enhancement.
This allows flexibility in the system to adapt to pre-approved Engineering alternates.
