Summary

Remove the Item revision field on the BPA

Content

Item revision is currently being defaulted from the Item master setup for non BPA based items. 

Item revision is defaulted from BPA for BPA based items.

When items undergo revisions often typically in manufacturing industries, it becomes difficult to cascade the revision change downstream. Moreover we have the following known issues:

1) We cannot update the Item revision on BPA manually, through FBDI or webservice.

2) We need to update the revision on the PO directly, but the Price reference from BPA get's lost if we do this.

Why do we need the item revision reference on the BPA then? Why cannot we get rid of them since we have maintenance problems when there are revision changes done every quarter especially in an manufacturing industry? Please pour your thoughts.

Howdy, Stranger!
