Has anyone dealt with the following type of outsourced manufacturing and if so, how did you or how would you handle it in Acumatiça?Company purchases the primary raw material in volume and drop ships it to the outsourced manufaturing vendor (treated as a warehouse in Acumatica). When production orders are needed from that outsourced vendor, the outsourced vendor mixes additional raw materials not owned by the company with the raw material owned by the company and then packages the product (more raw materials) before shipping to the company and invoicing the company for those fully packaged items without the cost of the primary raw material. At this point, the product is coming into the system without the cost of the raw material. I suppose that we could have the items coming from the outsourced vendor be treated as a component item for a production order after the item arrives fully packaged into the warehouse. The needed raw material could then be transferred from the vendor warehous
I ran MRP but I can only see demand for production orders that are in “in process” status. If I look at Inventory → Inventory Allocation Details I can see “Production Demand” which are production orders that are in process. I can also see “Production Demand Prepared” which are production orders that are in the planned status. How can see see what is in demand (production orders in process) and see all production orders in “planned status” in MRP
Is anybody aware of any way to calculate Overtime automatically? Having multiple Shifts and Calendars on the Work Center indicating this, does not work at all.On the Clock Entry the User needs to specify a Shift rather than the System identifying this Shift for the User based on the Calendar and current Time. From my findings, the User needs to Clock out at 5pm for example and clock in right after to the OT Shift. This is unusable when the system doesn’t detect this.There seems to be too much manual effort involved in getting Overtime costs right onto the Production order and also flowing towards Time Cards. It will all be presented as Regular time. Any ideas or solutions?
Is there any possibility to schedule operations not only by the restrictions of capacities and constraint dates but in addition by attributes?Use cases:- Food production: Producing food with and without nuts. Workload planned for one week on the same resource (mixer). User wants to have a schedule for producing first the items without nuts in BOM and only after that the items with nuts to make sure that the "nut-free" products are not polluted by rest of nuts. Mixer will be cleaned only at the end of the week.- paint production: sequece should be from light to dark on one and the same machine.- other industries: tool optimization for reducing the set up time for preparing the machines for the different products.
Our production process involves purchasing some items directly from the production order through Critical Materials in order to maintain the link upon receipt and ultimately the release/issuance of materials.However, there exists times where some of these items will arrive late (beyond our production end date). In these cases, we will still complete and close the production order (& ship out the order) despite not receiving certain items. This order is considered short shipped, as we shipped the order without certain items.These missing items are then added to a Sales Order and shipped and installed at the client’s site at a future date - once received. We have run into an issue as the goal would be:Once we close the production order, we would like to move the “short shipped” items to a Sales Order and link to the outstanding PO. The issue I’m having is I’m unable to unlink that PO from the now closed production order. As a result, I’m unable to link the PO to the newly created Sal
AM Error: The following error occurred when the system tried to copy the BOM: Error: An error occurred during processing of the field Location value MTYP2C Error: Location 'MTYP2C ' cannot be found in the system.
Hello:We updated to Acumatica 2022 R2, and before i can create a WO without problem.Now The system shows me next message error: AM Error: The following error occurred when the system tried to copy the BOM: Error: An error occurred during processing of the field Location value MTYP2C Error: Location 'MTYP2C ' cannot be found in the system.

Background:Client has bill of material with two operations. Their process is to issue all materials upon release of the production order. They backflush labor however at this time no labor is being capitalized due to $0 cost in the work centers. Client uses the FIFO valuation method. Issue:Upon release of a production order and related material, client creates a move transaction for some of the planned items. For example, if the Production order is for 450 items, the first move transaction may be for 100 items. When they create the move transaction, the material costs to produce 450 items gets allocated to the 100 items in the first move. When the remainder of the items are completed, they are put into inventory at $0. Why doesn’t the system allocate the appropriate cost to the items as they are completed so that each item is costed the same?
We have customers who use Average cost valuation on their compoenent and raw material inventory valuation.Currently, when a production order is created from a Bill of Material, the average unit cost from the stock item is used as the planned unit cost for these items on the production order. Our customers would like retain the material unit cost entered on their Bills of Material to the material unit cost on production orders created from the Bill of Material. Is there a configuration that accomplishes this?
Hello the regenerate MRP, show me next message error: Cannot insert the value NULL into column 'BranchID', table 'AcumaticaDB.dbo.AMRPDetailFP'; column does not allow nulls. INSERT fails. The statement has been terminated.Could you send me any idea what is the error? Best regards
Is there a way that I can create a generic Inquiry to estimate of how many of a particular sub-assembly can be made from the on-hand materials?
This is what I’ve been able to build but I want to make section that gives me a final number of how many I can build. Not have it show me what the lowest number in stock that I have. I want to see a section that says I can only build 6.
Good Morning, I trying to close production orders by warehouse by automation schedule. here are the conditions. when it runs, it says 0 records, when I know there are records to be closed. Has anyone tried this or can explain what I am doing wrong?I did try process all as well and it also says 0 records.
Has anyone else had issues with 2022R1 and how Production Orders and MRP relate? We just upgraded to 2022R1 and I am now having issues - wondering if there is a setting that changed that we didn’t catch when testing. Production order is set with a start on date of 2/27/2023. There is a PO for the item needed that is open with a due date of 1/10/2023. MRP is saying we still need to order the items with a Promise Date of 10/10/2022. I can’t tell where MRP is pulling the 10/10/2022 promise date from. Any ideas?
I have a customization where i have created a material receipt when releasing the document in the release method im creating the inventory receipt document so, it will create a plan id in the INItemPlan table which need to be deleted automatically while releasing the inventory receipt document but, with the code which i have written its not deleting the plan id record. So, in the inventory summary avaliable qty was doubling. can any one suggest me how to delete the record for INItemPlan using the code.When i do a manual receipt and release the document its creating the plan id and deleting the plan id when the receipt is released. INReceiptEntry iRe = INReceiptEntry.CreateInstance<INReceiptEntry>();
Fairly certain this is not a thing, but I wanted to verify.They always create production orders from sales orders.Would like to have the same number as the ID for both documents.So if you have SO12345 and create a production order from it, the production order ID is also 12345. Unless I hear otherwise, I will assume this is not possible as standard functionality.Thanks!
Error: Inserting 'IN Transaction' record raised at least one error. Please review the errors. Error: 'Reason Code' cannot be empty.
Good dayI have created a production order in my main tenant and on trying to release the Material transaction I am getting this error message “Error: Inserting 'IN Transaction' record raised at least one error. Please review the errors. Error: 'Reason Code' cannot be empty.”The reason codes are defined and set under the Inventory Preferences, how do I resolve this issue?
I researched all the articles that came up and not sure I am getting to an answer.We have a client that creates production from a sales order. In the BOM they have pictures at the step level. prior to Acumatica it was done in word which is a no brainer. But now that they are automating, they want to produce the router with the image on the print out.
Has anyone been able to create an inquiry that will allow you to see your expected quantity on hand by allocation date by WO? I’m essentially wanting to build a critical material but have it look at the entire demand rather than just that WO.
Hi,I need to use 1 generic BOM for probably thousands of Items. these Inventory Items for their production will have slight variations but it would be easier to be managed in Production mainetnance detail. assigning an inventry Item to the BOM as a mandatory field makes it restricted to only that BOM. is there any way around this? I don’t want to use the Configuration because the options are also too many. what would be your suggestion. Thanks For your help in advance.
I have client that needs to remove items from production to be used for other purposes. For example, they produce 10 widgets and at the move they want to put 8 into inventory and charge 2 to scrap expense account. The client backflushes material and labor.I configured the system as follows:In the related work center, I set the scrap action to Write Off In the Production Order Preferences, I marked the checkbox to Include Scrap in Completions so the order completes since there will be no additional items produced I created a reason code with a usage type Production. The Acumatica help guide says the reason code should be of the type Production Scrap, but this is not an option.When the move transaction is initiated, using the example above, 8 items are completed and put in inventory, but, at a cost of all 10. The reason code field is not editable, and I cannot figure out how it gets populated.Any insight into what I am doing wrong would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
From a production order you can create a PO. If I purchase material this way it seems that a linkage should have been created from the PO to the production order. Where can I see that linkage?I don’t see where I can see linked POs on the production order.I don’t see where I can see the linked production order on the PO.Thanks!
Hi,Does anyone have an example of a working Production Order Maintenance import scenario?Currently doing an import for the Qty to Produce field - per usual, keys (Order Type, Production Nbr) are committed first, which during manual entry would populate the form with relevant details such as inventory ID, warehouse, etc.However, have not seen it working with this screen in particular. Import scenario (refer active rows) Error Have tried multiple configurations of commit/hold/etc, but have yet to get any working. Appreciate any help provided.
We have a generic inquiry for Move where we display the AMBatch Total Amount and the INRegister Total Cost.
