Part # Revision - Open Discussion
Was wondering who uses part # REVISIONS versus new Part # CREATION? What criteria differentiates the two? Why one over the other? How does PeopleSoft provide for revision versus new part #? Advice on how to understand & manage revisions?

We try to reuse PeopleSoft Item IDs for similar item conversions to minimize the need to replace items and relabeling carts.
We generally use New Item Creation to maintain history. If a part description is virtually the same with minor changes then we may revise the description. We never re-use part #'s for a totally different part. We have to many parts in inventory at to many locations to risk having different parts possibly identified with the same part number. We just create a new one and have all inventory moved from the old number to the new number and discontinue the old number and set it to inactivate.
Hope this helps,
