If you have access, you can change the part name and/or Text on a product in the ART archive.
If changed, a job will run through all backlog for the specific part and change it accordingly.
The default rules for what defines ‘backlog’ and what documents are updated is as follows:
Change in PART name:
Sales & Supplier documents that have item status less than 10 and are not flagged as production: CQU,COA,CPO,SQU,SOA,SPO,PWO,CSO - ITMST<10,DOCTYPE<>"PRODUCTION"
Customer shipping advises that have item status less than 4, meaning not yet shipped out:
CSA - ITMST<4
Supplier documents that have item status less than 3, meaning not yet stored in the warehouse but received and not produced in-house:
SSA - ITMST<3,DOCTYPE<>"PRODUCTION"
Change in TEXT:
The same as above for changes to PART name.
In addition to this, Customer invoice plans with item status less than 9 will be updated with the new text description:
CIP – ITMST<9
Customized rules can apply.
