For those in manufacturing, how do you address over-picking for production?
Base NAV will only let you generate a pick for the quantity of items on a BOM. Sometimes it is common with low cost components that you need a few extra. The amount of overage you need is not always known and cannot be accurately listed on the BOM. How do others deal with this?
Second, what if you have items that are always used that you just keep in the production area at all times? I am aware of the Open-Shop floor bin. Unfortunately, that does not work for me as we use manual flushing. Even if I leave material in the "To Production" bin, when the next order comes up NAV will always suggest to pick fresh material and not use what is already in the TO bin.
I have seen on another site reference by a couple of people that they made modifications to overcome similar types of issues, but they do not elaborate on how they went about it.
I would like to know for those on this board what you have done to address these types of issues.
