    Why don't you create user manuals as one material and tool box as another material and add it to bom and assign it to the last operation. That way you can keep track of the stock of user manuals and tools boxes and make sure you issued them out to the finished product before it goes to the storage warehouse.

    Hi Badari,

    This is common practice in clients you mentioned like clients making earth moving equipments, road construction equipments etc.

    Here you can maintain these options as a material as documents kit and tool kit and assign it to last operation and issue it manually in goods issue to ensure that people have issued it to order. Most of clients like to have it in last operation in assembly line and they issue it along with accessories.

    Either you can maintain a sales BOM also, it helps if you are issuing it during dispatch and sales people take care of these documents and accessories.

      Hi Prasad,

      You can use MRP or Consumption based (Reorder point) planning, whichever suits your business process requirements.

      Material type for these items can be ROH; and if you believe HAWA or HALB or even FERT can suit your business process, please adopt it.

      Please close the thread if your requirements are met.
