I have an issue that I would like your thoughts on. My client sends material to an external processor during the production process. The charge for these services is not per piece, but by the Lot. Doesn't matter whether the production order is for 10 or 10,000 pieces, it is the same charge for the Lot. My Purchasing Info Record (Standard w/o a Material) is for a Lot, however when the PR is generated, it is for the Production Quantity say 10,000 Lots which makes the PO way out of line.
I have a manual work around by changing the Production Order External Operation Routing Unit equal to the Production Order Quantity and the Operation Unit remains as 1. This works ok, although my QM functionality is broken since it is 1 Lot to be inspected instead of the 10,000 pieces.
We also have the same problem except with weight. When the Lot goes over a certain weight, the charges are to be by the weight instead of for the Lot. I don't have a solution for this one.
