Work Orders With Multiple Items - Context?

RE: Work Orders With Multiple Items - Not Working
Exactly. If a foreman is looking at WO items he needs to see Issues and Status in the context of each item on the WO, not the entire WO. Costing is also an issue as it shows a report for the entire WO but, again, how about Costing for a WO item? If Costing is off and we have a variance there is currently no way to know which WO item is causing the variance. For example... Two WO items each have four hours of labour. One line item is issued five hours and the item is issued three hours. Costing shows no variance yet we had an issue in the context of each WO item. The same issue can arise with respect to other labour types such as overhead as well as consumables and materials that overlap in BoMs.

Again... Not trying to be critical here... Just trying to find a solution to allow visibility at the WO item level. In my opinion all pages/reports should be granular to the WO item level or we should limit WOs to just one item so we have good visibility with what we have now.

And... Addition of Work Centres to all WO-related pages and PDF output. Since Work Centres are at the BoM level should not they appear on each line item in the WO PDF? This is what I have done but no good for mixed WCs others may be using...
