Alternate Sourcing Product with Labor for Non-Requisitioned Material

Scenario: Product being sourced includes a labor operation. The primary product needs to be alternated sourced from Managed Product and that Managed Product is designated as non-requisitioned.  The end result of the alternate sourcing is for the system to generate a Work Order only (not a a stock requisition AND a Work Order).  Below is an example of a metal door with a labor operation for a cutout.


  1. Right click on the door to alternate source.

 Sourcing window, Products tab; shows a work order line item.

  1. Bring in the labor operation.

 Alternate Sourcing window; shows text pointing to the Original pane that says 'Right click and choose Add Original Product.'

  1. Add the labor operation to the list of Alternates. 


 Alternate Sourcing window; shows a text bubble pointing to the work order line item that says 'Right click on Vision Lite Cutout and choose Add to Alternate.'

  1. Then just choose the required alternate door from Managed product.

Alternate Sourcing window; shows the Vision Lite Cutout in the Alternate Tab.
