Need inputs on getting BOM Level information
Hi Everyone,Currently, we are working on the customization where we need to identify the level of the BOM/Subaseembly at the Production order level.We are looking to fetch the Level information while triggering the 'GENERATE ORDERS FOR SUBASSEMBLIES' action in the Production Order Maintenance screen.In the standard Acumatica, nowhere in the physical tables, we have this information maintained always. Seems the levels are determined on the fly while calculating the BOM Cost.Any thoughts on this would be helpful. Thanks for your support. Best Regards,Vidyakeerthi K
Manufacturing Items to be Used in your Construction Project
I would like to meet anyone who manufactures items which they later bring to their own construction projects. So, the manufactured items from your shop will later be incorporated into your construction project. We are trying to determine the best methods of tracking costs in the shop: do we code directly to a construction project when working on that project? Or do we simply manufacture items and make an internal sale to our construction project? At any rate, it would be great to find anyone who has travelled this path before. If there is anyone who has some experience in these processes, I would greatly appreciate the chance to get some advice.
Change Config Key Format While Copying
We have a client with a configurator with lots of attributes. The key format is currently set to Formula. There are so many attributes, they want to change to a system generated key format to be more usable. But when copying an existing configuration, there isn’t an option to change the key format on the newly created configuration. Does anyone know of a way to change the key format either on a new or existing configuation?
Split production order
Hello, I would like to know if I can also split current production orders (activated MRP module). As an example: An order with 100 parts. There are only material for 30 parts immediately available and I need the finished product right away.Is there a way now to say I'm splitting the current job into a 30 piece, 50 piece, and 20 piece job without having to finish (or cancel) the entire job or recreate several individually. It is also about the final accounting.
Reuse lot number in Production Orders
Is there a setting to allow using the same lot number for an item for multiple production orders? I have a client that tracks the lot number of the component. They usually create several orders to consume the component, but can’t use the same lot number across multiple production orders.
MRP and Outside Processing
Hello,We have a multi-level BOM that requiresOutside Processing at the Sub-Assembly level The Components require shipment to the Outside Processing Vendor (“Vendor Shipment)Issue:When Running MRP at the top level Finished Good level - MRP Display will suggest the creation of the Sub Assembly Production Order But MRP will NOT suggest the Components on the Sub Assembly that are marked for “Vendor Shipment”. (It does suggest if a Component is short and is marked as Regular)Options that I tested If a Production Order is created for the Sub Assembly and MRP is run - it will suggest Prod Order for the Sub-Assembly. The problem is 2 fold - There are Sub Assemblies that are 3-5 deep and hence will require a lot of effort to create and keep track of all the Prod Orders and Components required. Very Heavy and a lot of Multi-Step “Outside Processing” (Components shipped to Vendor 1 → who in turn will ship to a second one → who after processing will send it back to the client) Seasonal Business -
We have Acumatica 2022 R1 Build 22.115.0035 Customization: PSPTO,PSBOM,ClockEntry,CurrentBranchPlaceholder,MacolaHistory,MFG.NegativeMaterial.AC256275,PSQuality,SalesDemoDashboards2020R2
We want our manager to have the opportunity to approve PTO in Acumatica. I’m not sure if we have the correct modular installed. What modular is require?
I have a question about controlling in manufacturing. Do you know if and how a cost allocation / distribution to an order can be done. Our customer determines overheads based on statistical value when creating a production order. But these are theoretical costs and a kind of pre-calculation.Is it possible to assign actual costs after post-calculation/ after completed Production Order ? Thank you in advance.
How to block stock?
What’s the best way to block or place a certain quantity of an item on hold in Acumatica? This would be useful if you have missing inventory and want to have that amount not show as available for production while you look for/investigate it prior to returning back to available or writing it off.
Product Configurator - How do you reference an attribute's value and a second attribute in attribute rules?
The goal is to leverage the width given earlier in configuration and a bottom spreader type selection to include a target option. So WIDTH = 36, BST = ‘ST’; Thus target option is BST36. My initial thought was to create a rule under the BST attribute like so:Include, Custom Condition, Value 1: =([width]=36 And [bst] = ‘ST’, True, False), etcBut I’ll get an error when trying to run a test config when referencing the attribute I am creating a rule inside. I think it doesn’t like referencing itself ([bst] being the attribute in this case)To make things even more odd, I was able to do this on the attribute above this one, but this one is the last one and for some reason it just keeps throwing this error. Thoughts? Edit: Upon further investigation, I found that the test configurator doesn’t like having custom conditions that reference attributes that have not yet been defined. So I can use the formula above in the condition but only if there is a default value for that attribute already set
return quantity in material batch resulting in a positive dollar value
Upgraded to 2022R2 last week. I was attempting to remove material previously allocated to a production order incorrectly. I was able to put in the negative quantity but the dollar amount is positive. The unit cost selection is grayed out so I couldn’t change the value. Once released, it was actually adding to the production order total rather than decreasing by the amount removed. My example below shows how the amounts worked prior to upgrade. Anyone else experience this?
scan materials on acumatica mobile app.
Hi, We recently upgraded to 2022r2 build 211 and noticed when we use the scan materials on the mobile app, that it no longer asks to scan the lot/serial number. a majority of our items use lot/serial numbers so this is a big issue. This was working on our previous version 2021r1.Is anyone else aware of this or know a fix for this?
Multiple Production Clock Entry, Operations Tab Production Link Not Working
I’m attempting to troubleshoot a problem we’re seeing on a client site running 22.205.0026 where the production order hyperlink on the Operations Tab of the Multiple Production Clock Entry form does not create the pop-up for the order. On the Clock Entries tab, the link will work. More puzzling is that I’ve tried the link on different sites and do not have the problem (one was the same release as mentioned above).I believe I’ve added the site to my pop up allow list for the browser. I’ve tried different browsers after checking the pop up setting. I’ve made sure all customizations were unpublished and still cannot click that particular hyperlink. I’ve also experimented with production order type settings to see if that has any affect but have not found a setting that has any impact on the link problem.Has anyone else encountered the issue? I’ve been combing through the known issues list and am not finding a specific topic that explains this problem.
Receive partial stock-item to inventory from outsite processing
For the Production with Outside Processing process, can we partially receive stock items and have them show On-hand in the warehouse with the purchase order on Open status? I’ve done all the steps as guided, but on step 10, when creating the Move transaction, the received stock items don’t show up on the warehouse (on-hand) until the purchase order status is changed to completed or closed. We would like to have the purchase order open and continue receiving items from the vendor until the order is fully received. Are there any settings/steps that I’m missing? Thank you,
MRP Detail Inquiry Missing Information 2022 R2
We just upgraded to 2022 R2 and we’re having issues with MRP detail inquiry not pulling in Qty On Hand, Safety stock, Replenishment source, Replenishment warehouse, Transfer lead time. This is happening intermittently. I can run MRP and it won’t plan correctly on a particular part and rerun and it will plan correctly. We are utilizing multiple warehouse and the items are set up correctly in Item Warehouse Details replenishment settings.
Configured items, adding items on the fly and changing child prices
Hi All,Does anyone have a solution to adding items on the fly to the configuration entry on the Sales Order? I want to add a Non-Stock Item for example, is there a way to do that? I am also looking to change the prices of the child items, however you can not see those prices on the configurator. I know you can change the item total overall but not the child items.
Product Configurator - Feature BOM - Material Routing
Scenario:Configuration ID has Features and Options within the Features. The Options have subassembly Inventory IDs with BOMs. These BOMs have Operation Work Centers. Each of these Work Centers has a material list of items that need to go to that Work Center. The Work Centers in this BOM match the Work Centers in the Configuration ID BOM ID. These materials, for the most part, are all stocked, finished goods. The materials within these Work Centers, should be rolled up/added to the Work Centers of the Configuration ID BOM ID. When using Phantom routing “Exclude” it ignores the operation Work Centers of the subassembly BOM and adds the material to the Operation ID of the Feature Option. This, adds the materials to the WRONG Work Center. When using Phantom routing “After” it adds the operation Work Centers of the subassembly BOM and adds DUPLICATE Work Centers for each Work Center of each Option BOM selected. I assume that “Before” will do the same, but add the Operation Work Center, as a
How Does Overhead Updating function on an open order?
Acumatica has told us that the only way to update an open Production Order is to manually place the order on hold go to the operation, click the work center and adjust and save the order.So today I started taking a look at how this works.First, I adjusted all the operations in dept 400 on our Production OrderThis adjustment was changing the OH from 2.9 to 2.05 inside the production order.Next, I created a labor batch for 1 minute on Operation 0050.The Cost transaction Backed out the excess overhead from past labor imports in Operation 0050.I discovered that these labor transactions did not necessarily “true” up all the changed OH operations until we did our final move into inventory on the SFO.From this, I have a few questions/assumptions I am hoping to get verified.This “truing-up” process will only do this in the current financial year and open financial periods (we have some long-running orders that would cross the year we do not want this to change numbers from the previous year o
Handling of Partial Completions On Production Order
I am wondering how other folks might be handling the following scenario. We have a production order of 100 with 50 completed. We have an order of 10 being requested as an “emergency” order. In the past, we would just do a partial to put this into inventory and ship it out. However, what happens is this absorbs all of the cost onto the 10 then adds the other items in @ 0 cost. However, this causes a lot of cost issues. I am sure we can't be the only manufacturer that does this type of thing. I would love to know how others handle this.
Return Materials that were over-issued to a Production Order in Scan Materials
We have a customer that needs to be able to issue materials using the Scan Materials and then after the production run is completed, return the balance from the Production Order to inventory. There is a remove function on the Scan Materials form but it only appears to work within an existing batch. Entering a negative number causes an error that something else has updated the batch record. If all of the material was issued initially, the user gets a message that the inventory would go negative when the Item Number is entered and does not allow you to advance to the Qty to return or remove.Has anyone else created a customized Scan Materials form that allows the user to return materials from a Production Order? The Materials will be lotted items as well.
The status of the production order cannot be changed because it has related transactions that are not released.
We are trying to cancel a order and the following error is generated “The status of the production order cannot be changed because it has related transactions that are not released.” Here is the background on this production: When the production ticket was created the wrong BOM was used. We corrected the BOM issue No materials were issued and no labor was added. The router was in releases status. Where can I locate this “related transaction that isn’t release as of yet.”?
