Warehouse Kit Options 01490 Warehouse AF: AFERMS New

Description
Kits deploying to different AORs have different specific requirements for the environment.  warehouses have airframe and geographic location specific requirements for their locations.  It is extremely confusing having a large amount of optional components that always result in an "A" coded kit even if something mandatory at your location, but not marked as mandatory is missing .

Recommended
allow warehouse manager role to:

  • create local kit templates based off the LP kit.
    all components at LP would be mandatory, and they could make optional components mandatory as well as adjust the quantity.
  • additionally, they should be able to make multiple kit recipe cards based off the specific location they are in(not location type, but specific warehouse location).

Request from NSWC:
