We have a customer that needs to be able to issue materials using the Scan Materials and then after the production run is completed, return the balance from the Production Order to inventory. There is a remove function on the Scan Materials form but it only appears to work within an existing batch. Entering a negative number causes an error that something else has updated the batch record. If all of the material was issued initially, the user gets a message that the inventory would go negative when the Item Number is entered and does not allow you to advance to the Qty to return or remove.Has anyone else created a customized Scan Materials form that allows the user to return materials from a Production Order? The Materials will be lotted items as well.
Are there any configuration options to choose BOM revision as part of the Create Production Orders processing screen? Customer has many items that have more than 1 valid BOM revision and they would like to be able to choose/populate which BOM revision the resulting production order should be created with. Not being able to assign the BOM revision makes the Create Production Orders batch processing less valuable, as they will still need to go in and update BOM Revision on each production order generated. Thank you,Greg
I have a GI that seems to keep defaulting to a value when i have no default value set. The report works however its just annoying to have to change the value every time We really dont use the “stocked” class for much. This is what I want This is what I get every time .. Here are my ParamsAnd Conditions As you can see I don’t store anything as a “default” value.
I am getting the following error when trying to add new materials to a production order. This occurs when trying to put the order on hold. An unhandled exception has occurred in the function 'MoveNext'. Please see the trace log for more details. Any thoughts?
We have parts that we need to inspect on receipt before they can be sold. We have an inventory location that we receive to that does not allow sales (issues). We would like to create a production order to inspect these items but cannot issue them from the receipt location to a production order. Any ideas on a better approach to handle incoming inspections, including scheduling and prioritizing the inspections?
All I have a labor batch that Will release, create the GLBatch and Create the Cost Batch however the cost batch will not process. and the labor batch ends with an error Another Process has added the ‘AMProdEvent’ record. - The labor batch is still in “balanced” status, the Cost Transaction is still in “UNReleased” Status. My assumption is I could probably release the cost transaction. Which would finish the process. But would that close the Labor batch?
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.
I have a the completed quantities captured via the Labor function linked to a production order and the “completed quantity” at a work center is incorrectly captured and released. How can I reverse an incorrectly captured Labor transaction (or Move) before I move to the next stage or before I release the Production Order?
Hello. I was wondering if there is a place for me to learn how the dates between the sales order/ purchase order/ production order work. Also, what is the basic process for a situation of if one of the dates on the purchase order moves, can every corresponding production or sales order date move with it? Ie. I have a purchase order open for an inventory item. It currently meets the requirements date wise to complete a production order for a sales order item on time. If the vendor can not send the item on time and the purchase order is updated to reflect this, is there an automatic way for the production order and the sales order to move accordingly? Thanks!
Product Configurator - How do you reference an attribute's value and a second attribute in attribute rules?
The goal is to leverage the width given earlier in configuration and a bottom spreader type selection to include a target option. So WIDTH = 36, BST = ‘ST’; Thus target option is BST36. My initial thought was to create a rule under the BST attribute like so:Include, Custom Condition, Value 1: =([width]=36 And [bst] = ‘ST’, True, False), etcBut I’ll get an error when trying to run a test config when referencing the attribute I am creating a rule inside. I think it doesn’t like referencing itself ([bst] being the attribute in this case)To make things even more odd, I was able to do this on the attribute above this one, but this one is the last one and for some reason it just keeps throwing this error. Thoughts? Edit: Upon further investigation, I found that the test configurator doesn’t like having custom conditions that reference attributes that have not yet been defined. So I can use the formula above in the condition but only if there is a default value for that attribute already set
I’ve created a sales order with one line and a production order by Rest-API. I would like to link these orders by API. PUTing "SOLineNbr", "SOOrderNbr", "SOOrderType" into production order object doesn’t work. These fields stay null. The other way i get an error: "An error occurred during processing of the field AMProdOrdID: A numbering sequence for the order type is not configured.." Which is wrong.Any ideas?
We went live with our inventory system in Acumatica in January of 2022 and every single month we have dealt with unreleased production transactions against jobs that are already closed. We found out that when you approve the last step of the production order it automatically marks it complete. I believe this should not be possible, especially if there are unreleased transactions against it.Acumatica has tons of checks and balances before marking anything complete and I think that a production order should not be able to go into complete status until everything has been released. Just like Acumatica won’t let you release an entry without matching debits and credits, this should also be implemented for Inventory.
Hi All,Currently we are in the process in creating landed cost codes to start recording landed costs in the system. Would like to understand in detail on how this affects the valuation of the inventory, how its connected to the BOM, cost roll etc…Would really appreciate if anyone could share links, materials so I can read more on this topic.Thanks and Regards,Nazly
Hello,I am trying to understand the general process flow for scheduling in Acumatica. Assuming all calendars and setup have occurred, what is the process for maintaining the schedule.Please let me know where the following falls down. This is the proposed daily process for maintaining the schedule.APS Maintenance Process - “The process will fill the empty schedule days for each work centers for the next 180 days and adjust the schedule time blocks.” Rough Cut Planning - Run with action set to “Schedule” and “Process All” Running steps 1 and 2 above will rebuild and maintain your schedule so it is up to date and could be scheduled to run each night to keep it current.
Does anyone have any good resources for scheduling in an environment with sub assemblies? Do you use Acumatica data? Visual boards? Would you share your screens or process? or visual boards? Is there any videos or resources you could point me to learn the best practice? do you have a dedicated scheduler? Any comments on large vs small jobs? Trying to get better at this. Thanks!
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
I need help figuring out the missing piece on a Generic Inquiry.I want my users to be able to pull up a list of items needed for Planned, Released and In Process Work Orders. I have an inquiry started but it’s listing some items multiple times and it shouldn’t.The goal is for them to be able to see how much of Item A they need for the next 3 days or so and how much of Item B they need and so forth.I’m attaching screenshots with the linking currently on the inquiry. I think I have a join wrong or maybe there is a link missing…I would appreciate any input or if there is another way to get this info, please share.
Consolidate to one PO line or one production order for the same part when you create the order from MRP display
Hello,If MRP display shows multiple lines for the same purchased stock item, I would like to be able to create one PO line to order what I need.If I select multiple lines for the same stock item, and click “Purchase” in MRP display, it creates a PO with multiple lines for the same stock item, just with the different quantities. I would like one line with the entire amount. Similarly, if it is a MFG item, I would like one production order created when I hit the “Manufacture” button in MRP display. I can’t find any preference that sets this behavour.Thanks!
