Currently the item versions are not taken into consideration by the MRP. This creates a problem where the MRP thinks we have the item on stock and does not recommend orders, but when we try to create a time receipt there is no inventory available.
Additionally, the "Not enough inventory" message could be upgraded and tell us that we have inventory for alternate versions of the selected item. This is valuable information that could be used to determine whether the order should be modified or delayed. Otherwise, the people on the shop floor who are creating time receipts have no idea of this information and no easy way to check it, so they just assume there's nothing in the inventory and put the order on hold.
This is a big consistency issue and it is of utmost priority that the MRP follows the same rules as the software's other functions.
