Ian -

Why do you bother to transfer the stock to own at all? You can do almost everything with consignment stock that you would do with own stock, if you set up the stock determination correctly. I have thousands of forecasted materials, with and without safety stock, and we normally maintain zero own stock for them unless we get returns from customers or need to transfer plant to plant.

Subject: Using Vendor Consignment with Forecasting

We are looking at implementing Vendor Consignment for some of our materials that we currently consider as "Stocked". All of these materials have a Forecast, and some a Safety Stock as well. In some preliminary testing we found that the forecasted demand was triggering the vendor consigned stock to be transferred into our stock - this obviously defeats the object of vendor consignment stock. Is it possible to (maybe in config) to only consider "real" demand when triggering the transfer of stock from consignment to own?
