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 very cumbersome.
Is there any way around this issue?
