Full Version: Reverse Explosion of Goods Received

So here is an interesting scenario and one I have never come across in my career...

We have items that come in from our Supplier/Vendor that are a single PN which is a simple assembly or kit consisting of two items:

+ The container holding the product
+ The product within the container

The container has value significant enough that it must be tracked and can be resold to a customer as they are all in new condition. We will also buy these containers empty of product so we can keep them in stock/inventory.

In some cases we will resell it as a whole:

+ Container+Product just as it was received

In some cases we will sell it as a portion:

+ Partially-filled Container
+ Some measure of Product

Remaining Product stays in stock/inventory and we keep extra new empty Containers in stock.

So... We can very obviously explode our own kits/assemblies into related parts but has anybody ever done the opposite -- Exploding an incoming kits/assembly into related parts?

In the real world I can think of no case where such a thing would be done. It would be like buying an PC and then disassembling it into parts to be put into stock/inventory. What???

Any thoughts or ideas are greatly appreciated.
Just enter the PO with all the items being purchased. There is no functionality ...currently .... that explodes purchased kits into components.

Phil,

Yes... I figured that would be the best way and have proceeded in kind. Kind of a crazy scenario but that is what we must do for a short period of time.

I will add a description on the purchdata side that explains the line item is for reference only and not an order item.
