Non-Stocked Items Copied From Direct Items Section To Inventory Section After PO Receipt (Doc ID 2782261.1)

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR

Non-Stocked items are being copied from the Direct Items section on Work Orders to the Inventory Items section after a PO Receipt (note: Non-Stocked items cannot be added to the Inventory Items section manually). This causes phantom demand against inventory at the point the item setup is changed to Stocked, even if the work order is closed. The work order demand is being satisfied by the PO when it is expensed at receipt. The demand is being duplicated when the item number is copied to the Inventory Items section.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

Non-Stocked items should not be copied from the Direct Items section on Work Orders to the Inventory Items section after a PO Receipt.

STEPS

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Item Number was added to work order. It would have been in the Create Direct Items section because it was a Non-Stocked Item at the time. It is not possible on the front end to add Non-Stocked Items to the Inventory Items section but now the item number is shown in the Inventory Items section.
2. All the receipts for this item were delivered to Shop Floor. Another indication the item number was Non-Stocked when the WO was created. More importantly, the WO demand was originally satisfied via procuring materials expensed at receipt and thus should not also be issued from inventory.
3. Non-Stocked items are being copied from the Direct Items section on Work Orders to the Inventory Items section after a PO Receipt (note: Non-Stocked items cannot be added to the Inventory Items section manually). This causes phantom demand against inventory at the point the item setup is changed to Stocked, even if the work order is closed.
