We buy tubes of 5m of our supplier. In our production, we need these tubes but in a length of 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5m.
Because of form fit function, it seems to me that this should be 5 different inventory parts.
How should we manage this in IFS, knowing that in our shop order, it’s mentioned that we need tube of 3m for example. However, if needed, the operator can also use one of 4 or 5m. Then he just cuts it, an puts the remaining length on stock. The decission of taking a different length, is taken when he picks the material. How can we easiliy achieve this?
