The View Inventory Comment allows you to view any Manufacturing Comments that have been entered for the selected component or sub-item number. Manufacturing Comments are text notes that can be associated with each Catalog or Inventory Item Number in the system. These notes are used to store information about the item that is relevant when the item is used during assembly or manufacturing operations.
Inventory Manufacturing Comments can be created, maintained and accessed from the Product Management or the Shop Floor System. Inventory Manufacturing comments are also automatically output by the system on shop order documents when the comments are present.
Inventory Manufacturing comments are stored in the Comment file and they are assigned a Source of IN, and Ident equal to the item number, and Line 1020. One Inventory Manufacturing comment can be maintained in the system for each unique item number.
