Why we need to change material (itm) status to "Active" before replace in MFGMAT (Order components)



Sometimes engineers change the status of an item because of the need of change or the customer does not wan't more that component.

So, in production planning department, they need to replace the component with a new one.

The problem is, anytime they need to replace, they need to change the item to "Active" (ITMSTA : 1), replace in the order and then change it again to ITMSTA 6  : not used. Is there any way to bypass this?
