Looking for a Time Clock device that is compatible with Acumatica for employees to clock-in/clock-out of manufacturing work orders. This is possible with the Acumatica APP with an android scanner such as the TC21. But it is not practical for a shop of 20+ production employees who are clocking in and out of production orders often. It requires the user to login to the application. It is clunk and time consuming. We need the employee to be able to scan a badge and WO barcode to clock-in and out of work orders. This is nothing new to the manufacturing world. https://www.acumatica.com/cloud-erp-software/manufacturing-management/manufacturing-data-collection/ Based on Acumatic-Automated-Data-Capture-ADC-Playbook.pdf it sounded like this would be no problem. But, we have yet to find anyone who can recommend a time clock that will work for this application. Summary from the Acumatica PDF: TIME CAPTUREMany time clock applications can beconfigured to collect data for shop floorlabor reporting,
Hi Team,Please let me know, how to add “Approval Process” on Bill of Material screen.I tried to follow the below link, but it is for customized screen.https://www.acumatica.com/blog/implementing-approval-process-on-custom-screens/https://stackoverflow.com/questions/52210880/adding-standard-approvals-to-custom-acumatica-erp-module Appreciate your help, thanks in advance Regards,Ramya
Hello,Except for one specific screen, production orders do not print with barcodes.We want the default to be printed with barcodes.So if you print the production ticket directly from the order, or use “Print Production Orders”, we want it to print with barcodes. I don’t see anything in preferences about this.Any thoughts?
We have production orders with lotted items that we purchase through Critical Materials. (We have backflush off for materials) Once the item arrives, it is automatically lot-allocated on the Production Detail. When I go to release the materials for this order, why does the allocated lot not populate by default? Our teams are needing to return to the Production Detail to know the lot when releasing.
Looking to understand how the release of materials on a production order relates with the production ticket. We are looking to use the production ticket as a picklist in our manufacturing facility, but the production ticket is driven from the Production Detail. The Production Detail only shows locations for items ordered through Critical Materials or items that have been manually allocated in Production Detail. We can have up to 60 line items on a Production Detail so manually allocating each item is not an efficient use of time. Additionally, most of our items are purchased through MRP, not Critical Materials. Is there anyway to automate inventory allocations to a production order? When releasing materials for a production order, the system will select a location by default but you can manually change the locations prior to release. In my mind, it makes sense to have a printable version of the material release which can then be provided to the warehouse staff for picking purposes (sin
Hi,Looking for input on how to correct a product configuration and resulting production order that is in progress or completed.Scenario: A production order is created and partially completed, when it is decided that there needs to be a small change to the configuration. We manufacture portable storage buildings (pineviewbuildings.com) and in our case, this might be something as simple as changing the paint color due to a customer request or inventory needs changing midstream. The more common scenario is that a production employee made a mistake in the construction and now the configuration needs to be corrected to match the physical unit. Currently, there is no option modify the product configuration in any way after the production order has been released. The closest we can come is creating a new production order that consumes the finished good from the first production order, create the correct configuration result and then manually modify the materials. This, as you can imagine is v
Hello,We have multiple warehouses. All sell/MFG the same products. We’d prefer not to have a BOM for each warehouse since they are all the same. However, when I regen MRP after entering a sales order, I get different results if the warehouse on the sales order differs from warehouse on the BOM.Example:Finished product with 4 different materials.Enter a sales order for the finished product using the warehouse on the BOM. Regen MRP MRP Display suggests a production order for the finished product AND purchase suggestions for the materials (this is the desired behavior)Enter a sales order for the finished product using a warehouse NOT ON THE BOM. Regen MRP MRP Display ONLY suggests a production order for the finished product. It does NOT suggest anything for the needed materials.I have tried using substitution work centers and see no difference in behavior. Again, I am just trying to avoid having 7 different BOMs for the same finished part just because it is being made in a different
Hi all - I’ve run into a situation I am hoping someone can provide insight / a solution for. We had a production order (RO A) for quantity 4. Welding completed OP ID 10 for quantity 10 (they built 6 over). Assembly processed RO OP ID 20 and 30 for quantity 4 and then RO A was closed. The cost of the 6 extra welded parts were rolled into that of the 4 completed parts. Is there a way to reopen a production order to complete OP ID 20 and 30 for the remaining 6?Any advice is appreciated - thanks!
Can anyone tell me how individual production orders can be prioritised (reordered) in planned production orders?I.e. Sales would like to produce individual production orders earlier than planned or place new orders with high priority before other production orders. Is this possible? If so, how?
We produce labels for our subassemblies based on inventory receipts that are generated in the production process. This has worked well for us in the past as we have only ever manufactured in singular large lots based on the production process. Below is an example of a label that produced 936 pieces of wood.However we are now generating multiple lots from singular production orders (EX: 6 lots of 156 pieces) which is causing the lots to pull in as <split>. This is because the lots have been pushed to the line details tab as there are multiple for a single line. Please see example below.Now the barcodes will not generate on the labels because it pulls directly from the receipt page. There are two possible solutions for this, neither of which I am sure how to execute:If we could specify in the production order that we’d like to generate 6 lots of 156 pieces so that they would appear that way on the on the receipt, then there would be no problem. However, I have found nothing that sp
Good morning MFG Community. I am running 22.108.0024. I am entering and Expiration date on one material on the BOM lets say 9/30/2022. I am adding a new Material to the BOM with an Effective date of 10/1/2022. My assumption would be if a create a production order with due date and start date of 9/15/2022 I should see material A on the production order details because the due date and required date are before 9/30/2022. On the other hand, if I crate a future order today for 10/10/2022. I would expect material A to drop off because of the expiration date of 9/30/2022 and the new item B to be added because of the effective date of 10/1/2022. I can not get this to work. No matter what I do, any future orders still have part A and do not show part B
I want to update the warehouse for a specific material on my BOMS. I created an import scenario with the goal of identifying the BOM id and inserting the warehouse however I keep getting an error. I made sure to uncheck the lines with -1 to prevent a new line from being created. I feel like I am missing a line to allow this to work. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Would anyone know if there is a posibility to update the start/end dates on an operation itself? i know you can update the actual work order but i would like to have seperate dates for each operation so each team have there own start date.Thanks!
Hello,I am doing outside processing.I have a production order with the outside service and have created the PO.I go to Vendor Shipments to ship the material to the vendor, but cannot save the shipment.I cannot enter a Shipment ID manually and cannot locate where an autonumber sequence is defined for this.I get this error:
Hello,We purchase material from Vendor A but it is never physically received.It is drop shipped to another vendor for service. Vendor B.I am creating a 1 operation BOM with the purchased material and the service non-stock item.I see a check box for “Drop Shipped to Vendor”.However, I am not finding much documentation on it’s use.This box certainly seems applicable to this scenario, but I am unsure how it is used.Can anyone offer insight?
Hi all,What would be the best method to either:disable inventory SO Allocated allocations from Labor/Move transactions altogether periodically unallocate the above inventory allocations?I understand inventory allocations can be manually altered using the SO Line Details button, but the process is often too labor-intensive when we have hundreds of item plans - several for each daily Labor/Move document - and we just want to consolidate the gross produced quantity as one line for a shipment.Unfortunately, Shipment documents ship each allocation as one line, resulting in hundreds of duplicate inventory ID lines on a Shipment per our Manufacturing-generated allocations. Perhaps some sort of automation method or toggle to free inventory allocations is available?
I am testing automatic forecast generation for a client that has been live for a year. I am testing in 2022 R1.We previously uploaded manual forecasts since the client did not have any actual sales data to generate forecasts automatically. The forecast calculation is simple...10% growth per month. I am able to calculate the forecast however when I process the data, the forecast listing shows the items with an interval of One Time and they appear to be in addition to the old forecasts. The previous forecasts were entered with the interval Monthly. My questions are as follows:Is it possible to process the generated forecast with the interval of monthly and automatically update previously entered forecasts?What is the implication of one time vs monthly?There does not seem to be a way to easily mass delete old forecasts. I have thousands of lines as there are different forecasts by item by month and deleting one by one is not realistic.
Hello - How are you managing the life cycle of your part numbers? We start with an R&D item. It could be one we make, have made or purchase. We assign it a part number as R&D, and make revision changes as it’s qualified and perhaps updated. Finally, we might obsolete the part number. We would like to track that life cycle of the part within Acumatica and we would like Acumatica to issue the next available part number, instead of tracking all of this in a sub-system. What are other manufacturers doing within Acumatica to document the life of a part number? Thank you.
