Setting Quantity Equal to Zero in BOM Line Creation

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

Is it valid to set an item's quantity to zero if you don't want it to be consumed when creating a new BOM line? The quantity would be zero but the 'Per series:' value would still be the number of parts required to make for a production order? Or would setting the quantity to zero be useless and redundant?

    Hi Blake,

    The per series is just a divider to be able to assign consumption as a fraction. Great in cases where you use might use quantities like 1/33 or 5/77 instead of the decimal values. If you enter 0, you would effectively say 0/N which is 0.

    So no... :)
