Distinct Default order settings for Inventory and production

production and inventory constraints are often not the same in terms of Min/Max/Standard/Multiple quantities.

Moreover, when using items with production type 'Formula', the 'Multiple' is to be defined on the formula itself.

These quantities should be defined in one place and made...

Item template has lost power since AX 2009

The item template only controls the Inventtable. this is unfortunate, especially since we lost the default order type that used to be in the inventtable.

We can only create purchased items with the template in 2012 or D365.

We think the template should be extended to the default ...

Thank you for your feedback and suggestions.

Instead of pursuing the approach of the Item template, we are reviewing the option to uptake the work that the Retail team has done in the Retail categories, that allows to set default values for released product attributes by category. The advantage of this approach is, that this approach is also usable when using data entities. In the latest version (Fall release) this also covers the default site and warehouse. So the recommendation for now would be using the Retail category as "product master category" and use the category defaulting capabilities.

Thank you for your feedback. We are not considering the suggestion at this time due to the following reason:

The "sub-BOM" and "sub-Route" fields on the sales order line are populated by the Product Configurator mainly for backward compatibility for customers that was migrating from the now discontinued Product Builder feature. 

The purpose of the "sub-BOM" and "sub-Route" fields on the BOM line are to enable users to override the active BOM and Route and specify an alternative BOM or Route for a specific BOM line. These fields should not be populated when the active BOM and Route is used.

In case of the Product Configurator, there will always be a one-to-one relationship between a configurable item and the generated BOM and Route, which is modeled through an active BOM version and Route version. Hence the "sub-BOM" and "sub-Route" fields on BOM lines representing sub-assemblies are not populated.

Batch Attributes by Variants

Batch Attributes can only be specified at the product master level. It would be great to have the ability to add product specific Batch Attributes for each variant. This functionality is also needed for Product Attributes.

Hide no longer used items from item selection lookups

Have another parameter at the Product lifecycle state settings so it can hide no longer used items from item selection lookups (or do it automatically)? E.g. from drop downs when creating BOMs.

The main goal is to omit obsolete products from the selection lists without need to use worka...
