Information in this document applies to any platform.


In the below 2 PeopleBook chapters, you can read that you cannot inactivate a Manufacturing Item whether it is defined as 1) an assembly or 2) as a component of an assembly.

PeopleSoft FSCM 9.2 > PeopleSoft Managing Items > Managing Inventory by Item Status > Defining Item Status

In PeopleSoft Inventory, an item definition at either the SetID or the business unit level may have any of these statuses:


Items with Inactive status are restricted to warehouse movement transactions, adjustments, RMA and RTV transactions, and receiving transactions. You cannot place or fulfill orders for items with an Inactive status, nor can these items be used in planning, replenishment, production, purchase order, or requisition transactions. You can remove item records with an Inactive status from the system by using the Inventory Data Purge process (IN_PURGE).

To change an item to Inactive status, enter a future status of Inactive and a future status date on the Define Business Unit Item - General: Common page for the business unit and item or on the Define Item - General: Common page, and run the Change Item Status process (INS4000). Items that are defined as manufactured items cannot be inactivated. If you use PeopleSoft Manufacturing, you cannot inactivate an item that is specified on a bill of material (BOM), WHETHER IT IS DEFINED AS AN ASSEMBLY OR AS A COMPONENT OF AN ASSEMBLY. Nor can you inactivate an item if it has a routing definition, if it is defined in a production area, or if production IDs or schedules exist.

Requirements for Business Unit Item Inactivation

The Change Item Status process validates that the business unit item is eligible for Inactive status. For the business unit item to be eligible for Inactive status, these conditions must be met in each of the PeopleSoft Supply Chain Management applications that the system includes:


PeopleSoft Manufacturing (for manufacturing transactions that reference the manufacturing business unit and the inventory business unit of the item that is scheduled for inactivation).

* No BOMs exist for which the item is an assembly OR A COMPONENT OF THE ASSEMBLY.
* No routing definitions exist for the item.
* No production areas have the item that you want to inactivate assigned to them.
* No production IDs or production schedules exist for the item.

However, you can uncheck the 'Used in Mfg' check box on the 'Define Business Unit Item' page which allows you to set the Future Status to 'Inactive' and finally to inactivate the Item by running the 'Change Item Status' process (INS4000) process (navigation: Items, Define Items and Attributes, Change Item Status).
