I am was wondering weather in Baan IV C4, when the user receive a shipment of raw material in a Location and Lot Control environment, does BaaN assign a lot number with a unique receipt number.
We are implementing bar coding and we were under the impression that we can receive one a large shipment of raw material and just assign one lot number and issue the material from this lot number to production by replenishing quantity needed.
However, we were informed that it is not possible to assign one lot number to a huge shipment since for every pallet their has to be a unique lot number even though it is just for one single item. Furthermore, it will create a problem when we issue to production and will be a huge task when doing cycle counting.
Can anyone shed some light on this because it is really a critical matter on our final decision.
