partial consumption of a material in an order
this is an issue that has stumped me for a while:
Material A is purchased in pieces and maintained in pieces - and is 5 meters long and always issued as 1 piece (5 meters long)
2 orders consume the a single piece of material (order 1: 3m and order 2: 2m - can also be order 1: 1.7m and order 2: 3.3m). regardless of the situation, material A has left overs when issued to a single order.
I want to track this partial consumption of material A per order. what i did as a work around is just carry the cost to the first order, even if it takes 2 orders to consume 1 piece (since it ultimately reflects in the cost center anyway)
is there a work around for this? our MM guy (and myself) don't really see a logical way of handling this.
