For 1 of our retail customer during implementation, they have below scenario.
For the damaged items, they will process below operation flow for each month end.
If it is required to maintain different Item Cost for different warehouses, it is needed to define a setting in Company Details as below.
Check the box for ‘Manage Item Cost per Warehouse’
However, this retail customer would like to keep the same Item Cost for all shops (all warehouses) except the damage warehouse. Is there any alternative method or workaround solution for this scenario?
Upon not selecting 'MANAGE ITEM COST PER WAREHOUSE' the pricing will be combined for all the warehouses.
I think it should be selected.
As far as issue and receipt is concerned the effect goes to stock and stock difference losses and gains.
So you can always decide at what cost the goods are to be received and consumed.
If you use manage item cost per warehouse, it means that each warehouse can have different item cost for one item but also have the same item cost.
So, I suggest you to use it.
For the damage warehouse, I suggest you to allow the system make a good receipt without unit price. It means that if you have created good issue for the damaged item but the item cost of the item is not zero, you have to revaluate the item cost using inventory revaluation.
