When using consignment replenishment orders, Microsoft has forbidden to use consignment item with other than moving average or standard cost stock valuation.
I suppose it’s a matter of stock closing but I’m wondering if it’s a mathematic, functional or technical reason or something else.
The only thing I know it’s that is done for a reason, but many of our customers would need that functionality with a FIFO or AVG stock valuation.
Basically, when you create a brand-new item with FIFO and Owner (Owner tracking dimension setup is the way to specify which owns the stock between the supplier and the company, you can find a great tutorial here), you’ve got directly stuck with the following message: The tracking dimension group for this item has the owner dimension enabled. Only the Standard cost and Moving average cost models can be used for owner-enabled products.
The blocking message is quite explicite but I needed to get diving to know the WHY ? I’ve created a case to Microsoft and even if I haven’t got a clear answer I have more information now :
By looking at the code we found this :
ret = checkFailed(« @Consignment:MessageValidation_ItemModelGroupId »);
The functionality is available for Russia localization so I’m keeping asking and here is the story of that :
Another thing to know : you can force (through customization) any stock valuation policy to be authorized when created a released product without surcharging so we’ve tried this. As far as I know, and by testing a quite tricky test scenario with stock closing, I haven’t found anything strange in my result.
I haven’t got the answer I was expected by Microsoft but I can have a better view anyway. What is sure is our customer cannot wait the next PU so we are moving forward with that.
I’m still hoping completing this post one day when I found out the real why !
