We are having difficulties facilitating the following scenario in IFS, if you could please provide guidance if we are missing a setting or functionality, as this is a fairly standard industry wide process.
Scenario : We purchase Raw Materials from Overseas. We pay for and assume ownership of the parts on dispatch of shipment from the Supplier (sometimes these shipments can take 4-8 weeks). In IFS, these parts should be considered part of our Inventory from a Financial perspective, however they are not available for Planning as this have not yet physically been received on site. Currently IFS, the parts are appearing in Inventory both Financially and from a Planning perspective, they should not be appearing available for Planning while they are in transit but only when they are physically received onsite.
This behavior is causing us significant issues in our MRP planning as these parts are appearing as though they are available on site and can be consumed ever though they are still in transit.
If you could please advise
