item tracking and BOM

Our client needs to track raw material by LOT NR However, in BOM journals one cannot set LOT nr on compnent lines. While the component has Item Tracking by LOT nr (settings on Item Card), it’s impossible to post the BOM journal - for it says, the LOT NR is required… Well , seems that the Item tracking should be possible even on components of BOM. do I miss something or this is just another deficiency of Navision. best regards, Marika

You are right, the Assembly List and BOM Journals do not support the Item Tracking functionality. You will have to use the Manufacturing module to be able to track consumption of raw materials by Lot numbers. Best regards, Ejner
