Currently, the assembly order module (with location setup to "require pick" and default to-assembly Bin set on location) does not allow for mistakes or change of manufacturing plan, or to deal with damaged/unacceptable stock.

I have an assembly order, and create an inventory movement which I register to pick the stock, and move it to the assembly area.
Now I realise that part of the stock is damaged OR I have a shortage of one of the components, which now needs to be re-prioritised on another assembly order.

I can of course move the damaged inventory, or consume the inventory on another assembly order. But it then becomes impossible to pick again for that assembly order, as the Whse. Item Tracking lines show a quantity registered which is the full quantity, and the Qty picked on the assembly lines shows that the stock has been fully picked.

This is a serious lack of flexibility which doesn't match real world scenarios.

A simple control on the assembly line menu 'Reverse Pick...' would be a great addition. On clicking the action, a request page would request a quantity to reverse, a destination bin, and offer the ability to select the tracking information where relevant. Then on registering, the Qty Picked on the assembly order would be updated to reflect the reversal, and the Whse. Item Tracking Line would be updated/deleted so that picking can happen again.
