When we flag a component item as inactive in IM item maintenance, it should not be alowed in a production entry. If someone forgot to change the bill of materials there should be a message to the effect that this item in inactive and cannot be used.

We have had inactive FIFO items go negative for this reason.

I'm OK with allowing a discontinued item to be used until the qty goes to zero but once the Inactive Item checkbox is checked that should prevent all transactions.
