Are there any users experiencing strange behavior in the Generate Forecast screen in v2020r2? We’ve found the following issues:If an existing calculation is displayed in the Generate Forecasts screen, and the user wants to create a generate a new calculation with different parameters, the system throws an error regarding a “circular” reference. This requires the user to delete all of the forecast lines from the Generate Forecasts screen so he or she can start over. If a user generates a forecast, it is displayed and cached within his or her user account but is not visible on another’s account. In other words, it appears that each user is creating and maintaining his or her own forecast as opposed to the forecast been company wide. To that point, if one user removes all of the line on “his” generated forecast, other users will have their own forecasts on their screens, even after a web page refresh. It appears that the generated forecasts are remaining in users’ caches incorrectly.
I am performing testing on a client’s BOMs whereby materials and labor are both backflushed. The BOMs are quite simple in nature with one or two work centers. At this time we have a zero rate applied to the work center since the client has not determined the appropriate value. When production is completed and the move step is initiated, I see the materials go into WIP at the proper cost. The labor cost does not generate entry since the work center rate is 0. When I check the move out of WIP and into inventory, there is an unknown component to the entry whereby COGs and Inventory are impacted but there is not reflected in the cost of the item, nor should it be. I cannot figure out what is driving this entry. See screenshots for example. Any idea why the highlighted portion of the entry in the last screenshot is happening? Client uses Average Cost valuation method for inventory. I tried the Cost Roll process to see if this would fix the issue but it has not.
Accidentally closed a production order before all material issues were done.We really need the lot/serial information of this material to be recorded on the production order.Since you can’t re-open a production order, how can these skipped issues be corrected?
I have added a second shift to my work center for 8 hours. My scheduling blocks are set to 1 hour in my Production Preferences. The second shift has its own calendar. I ran the APS maintenance. Then when I look at capacity, the work center shows 40 blocks of capacity. It showed 40 blocks when I had one shift. Now that I have added a shift I would have expected the capacity of this work center to increase to 80 blocks per week.I have deleted work centers, re-added them, recreated calendars and runt he APS process each time and nothing changes?
Does anyone know if Acumatica supports 'box' functionality that allows for a given stock item to have multiple 'boxes' for storing the item in several inventory locations.Context is a stock item that is received as multiple boxes (say 3) with 1 of 3, 2 of 3 and 3 of 3 stored in different possibly locations. Wasn’t sure if this was supported today and if so, where I could find more details. Any insight, greatly appreciated. Thanks,Dave
We were under the impression that an MRP Display of “Safety Stock” indicates the item is only needed to keep the item quantity above the safety stock level. However, we are seeing items which are negative to allocation (ie. demand for the item on existing production orders exceeds the quantity on hand and on order) but MRP shows the item as needed for safety stock. Shouldn’t this be either MRP Requirement or Production Material? See below for sample item:The “Safety Stock” designation is confusing and has resulted in stock outs as the items weren’t ordered in time to meet the real demand for the item. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
This may be a pretty basic questions but I am learning, If I need to edit the stock item safety stock in a warehouse, is there a way to do that in bulk? It would take a very long time to clean up this data if I have to open every single item in item warehouse details and edit them. There has to be a better way! TIA!
When running MRP for a finished good marked as MRP item, do I need to mark raw materials as an MRP item also or will the system automatically pull them in?The idea is to only set the safety stock at the finished good level and run MRP off of that. We want to minimize raw materials at is food production. Thank you.
Is it possible to see a breakdown of total average cost of production into average labor/average material/average overhead and average outside service costs respectively. Is there already a way to do this, is there is sufficient data available to break this out with a custom report or would I need to have a customization to get to this level of traceability?
Hello--We are looking for the best approach to externally feed data and selections into the manufacturing product configurator.For instance, if a certain combo box option is selected on the sales order, data from another field or table is automatically fed into the product configurator. Looking for information on any of the following:How to use import scenarios with product configurator How to use API with product configurator And endpoint extension you can send me? Business events or push notifications with product configurator How product configurator keys work and if these keys can be externally generated and fed into the SOThank you!!
Hello,I am unsure of the purpose of Stock Item kits in Acumatica.I created a stock item and marked it as kit.Then I defined the kit in kit specifications. It is just 2 purchased parts in the kit.I put if a sales order for the kit’s stock item ID and MRP did show it in the MRP display.How do I generate something for the shop to build the kit from MRP?It seems like I have to see the demand in MRP display, then open Kit Assembly and process this.It seems like just having a BOM with 1 “assembly” operation and the component materials is a better way to go as I can generate the production order directly from MRP and when completed the completed kit goes into stock.Am I missing some basic understanding of Kits in Acumatica?Thanks!
I am working on getting MRP up and running for my company. We have been getting by until we could get our BOMs updated with acumatica and in line with how it would pull inventory. Then, we did an entire inventory count to balance back out all of the mistakes that had been made over the months since our “go-live” date. That being said, we have several POs that have been created due to word of mouth need instead of through MRP. Is there a way to go back and link these POs to lines on MRP to remove the items from the list so we do not create any more POs for unnecessary items? If not, how should this be handled to get these items off of MRP?TIA
Does anyone know of a way to generate production tickets from MRP for the total quantities that are in demand for an item. Currently it is showing the same item multiple times and if you generate tickets it will create one by one instead of a sum of the quantity. If we manually sum the qty and create a work order for that quantity, mrp still shows the demand one by one until it’s complete. Quite cumbersome to keep on track. Any suggestions?
Is there a way to create a Shipment from a Sales order within the Acumatica App? Our team uses the app to process Production Orders and I’d like them to be able to stay within the App vs having to switch to the web to create a shipment. Is this possible?
Hi SirWe would like to know what mean of production variance.As we do a disassembly transaction and notice that system auto generate “ production variance” May i know what is this for? Please refer to the below.If based on below journal , does it mean the production variance 21.44 is reduce the inventory value as the double entry is credit account code14720 inventory.
in a manufacturing environment:Hello, we need to be able to import BOM as the cost base into either estimate or quote or any other window, then mark up labor cost and material cost and any other markup for sales quote purpose. i.e. BOM1, with 2 ops center A & B, and raw materials 8 & 9once we import bom1, markup op center A by 25% and B by 30%, etc.. Any direction and instruction highly appreciated .. thank youZoey
Hello,We have a production order with the status of “completed” which we need to close.When we attempt to close, it fails and tells us there is unreleased transactions.When I attempt to release the offending labor transaction, it fails and say it can’t process because the production order is “completed”.Seems like a catch 22 here.I can’t close the production order because of the unreleased labor.I can’t release the labor because the production order is completed.There is no way to change the status of the production order to allow corrections.Thanks for any guidance!
