we are in the middle of implementing ax 2012 for out production site (4 in Europe).
One of the issues is how to model transferring goods from RM warehouse to the production floor.
The production manager want to use a transfer like mechanism to accomplish this.
Whereas the financial manager says: when goods are sent from the RM warehouse, I consider this as WIP.
The problem is that the raw materials are going in bulk from RM warehouse to the floor for more than one production order.
As a consequence of having minimum stock levels for these raw materials, when the materials are release from RM warehouse to the floor, new raw materials are purchased to replenish the inventory.
But the raw materials are not consumed at that moment. So then we have too much raw materials in stock compared to the actual production.
Hope to get some advice from someone quickly.
