Material Policy Date for products with and without ASI

Description

  • Created a new Attribute Set called "Serial". I checked both the "Serial No" and "Mandatory Serial No" check boxes.

  • Created a new Product called "SerTest1" and assigned it the "Serial" Attribute Set.

  • Create MR with ASI set at MR Line
    -Created a new MR (no need for a PO) for Seed Farm with a Movement Date set to 1/10/2017 (not today).
    -Created a new MR Line with the "SerTest1" product and set the ASI (Attribute Set Instance) to a newly created record (100 in my example).
    -Completed the MR and Looked at the Material Receipt window => Line sub­tab => Attribute sub­tab. Notice there is NO record.
    -Create MR with no ASI specified at MR Line
    -Created a new MR (no need for a PO) for Seed Farm with a Movement Date set to 1/10/2017 (not today).
    -Created a new MR Line with the "SerTest1" product and left ASI blank.
    -Completed the MR and Looked at the Material Receipt window => Line sub­tab => Attribute sub­tab. Notice there IS a record and the Date Material Policy is set to the MR => Movement Date.
    -When I look at the Product window => Located At sub­tab, I see the two above records. The first scenario (ASI specified) set the Date Material Policy to today. The second (no ASI specified), set the Date Material Policy to 1/10/2017 just as the Material Receipt window => Line sub­tab => Attribute sub­tab specified.

"Posting Date" is to financial accounting what the "Movement date" is to inventory management. They are used to control the effective date of financial transactions
(posting date) and inventory transactions (movement date).
