Lot control has nothing to do with MRP.  Also if you need one line with lot control and the other without, you cannot do this automatically in QAD.  As they are both in the same site (I assume) the part would need to be marked as not lot controlled and you would need to remember to enter a lot number on some of the receipts.  The other option would be to mark the item as lot controlled and then use a generic lot number say "NA" for the amount that does not require lot control.

Another option would be to set up two different parts.  Same part number but one ending in say "-L" to signify that it is the lot controlled version.  then make sure each BOM reflects if it needs the non lot part or the lot part.  That way MRP would see the two demands individually

Phil,  The second option that you listed is what we have done.  But that is causing issues for our Purchasing Dept to know exactly how much they need to order since they have to look at two different items.

Set up the NON LOT part as a type "M".  then create a BOM to say it is made from the LOT version.  That way you would get all the requirements under the lot part.  This would ensure that the full receipt gets a lot number.  Then use 3.12 Receipt - Backward Explode to convert the lot part to the non-lot part.
