Acumatica lets you make mass changes to bills of materials but it doesn’t appear that you can make mass changes to existing production orders when the bills of material are changed.

Does anyone know if this is possible?

I have several customer asking this.

Hi @donnadeskins55 

Currently you can not make mass changes to production orders. I would suggest putting that in for a future release request to Acumatica.

Depends on what you are looking to do.  Generic Inquiries can be modified to include Mass Actions and Mass Update Fields. Only fields that can be updated will be allowed.  And fields that require a popup confirmation will also error out.  But this solves most scenarios.

See this video for help at time spot 4:23.

One idea for a work around is to use an import scenario or business event (based on a generic inquiry) to clear out the BOM ID and Revision ID on the Production Order Maintenance References tab. This will clear out the production details, then use a second import scenario/event to load back into the same or different BOM ID. These scenarios/events can be automated via a schedule.

Couple Limitations:

(1) Will only work for production orders in a planned status -- once the production order is in process, this will not work -- so the Generic Inquiry will have to be limited to statues of planned (or Released that can be re-planned).

(2) Assumes that your production order details do not need to be revised -- the work around would undo any revisions to production order details if the BOM ID is updated.
