When a component quantity-per-assembly is a very small fraction significant beyond 6 decimals, rounding to 6 decimals (as WIP does currently) creates a small variance that can multiply into a large variance when job quantity is large. A typical example is in semiconductor manufacture where a single component wafer produces many die assemblies, meaning component quantity per assembly is a very small number. There needs to be a way to define on a BOM an inverse usage, i.e. assemblies
per component) which, when converted to component quantity per assembly, is not rounded. This would eliminate the occurrence of variance as described above.
Is there such a functionality in 11.5.10 for Inverse Component Usage?
