Hi Kristian, you would have to join the configuration results options table to the material lines by inventory id. This help article describes the manufacturing tables including the config results tables. The only issue would be an inventory item that is used in more than one feature.https://help-2021r2.acumatica.com/Help?ScreenId=ShowWiki&pageid=1ce567e9-7d64-4f0d-aa14-d894a35a8fc3
Unfortunately you can’t write a formula for an attribute but you can use a formula to populate the configuration key, key description, and transaction description. You can enter the formula for the configuration key or use a <FORMULA> “attribute” to show the data during configuration (I do this all the time to see the field values) and then use the Field assigned to the <FORMULA> to populate the configuration keys, The key, key description, and trans description are store in the config results table.
You can add an inventory item as a byproduct in the bill or production details (a negative qty required is a byproduct). Or you can add it on the fly when doing a material transaction. That will do an inventory issue of the return type. Once in inventory you can dispose of it using an Issue with a reason code to expense it out. If the waste has a value (byproducts do not absorb any of the production costs) you can use standard cost and assign it a value and that will credit the production order costs for that value.
it does not: The functionality is available if the Paperless Picking feature is enabled on the Enable/Disable Features (CS100000) form and the new Automated Warehouse Operations Engine is in use. There is no feature in 2021R2 to enable it not is there a switch anywhere to turn on this new engine that I was able to find. The article references another article for developers to customize 2021R1.
For configure to order items it is common to use a planning bill of material which specifies all of the standard parts as well as the percentage of each option expected to be selected. For example, feature A has 3 options O1, O2, and O3. 50% of of the customer order Q1, 30% O2, and 20% O3. Periodically, you would revise these percentages based on the ordering pattern. As far as stocking configured products, assuming you are using lot/serial tracking, you would need to store the configuration results id somewhere when the unit is being received into stock so the unit could be identified later. There is a GITHUB package that allows the entry of attributes for the lot/serial number. Each configuration results ID (multiple tables) have the link to the sales and production ID’s.
Are you a partner or an end user and where are you located? If you are a partner, then Acumatica can assist; for an end user, your partner can assist. A planning bill is not different than any other bill. As long as decimals are allowed for quantities you can enter a % as .2 for 20% etc. All the make planning bill does is update the default planning bill id on the Stock Item and/or Item Warehouse Details. MRP automatically uses the default planning bill if present and if not the default bill from the Item Warehouse Details.You would have to ask Acumatica about attribute on lot/serial records. The GITHUB package has been used by multiple customers.
How-To: Handle product availability when the Warehouse-Location mapping is changed for already exported location
How can you show inventory availability based on the warehouse assigned to the customer? Client has regional warehouses and for B2B only wants to show inventory availability for the warehouse assigned to the customer. For B2C they would like to show inventory only for the warehouse closest to the customer.
MRP is trying to balance supply and demand. The Grace days in MRP controls whether or not it generates a new planned order to cover demand or use existing supply. If supply is withing grace days and outside of the Days Late you get a expedite message. These are the only 2 options to balance supply to demand. The alternative to balance demand to the supply by changing the demand date. If the demand is only safety stock then reduce the safety stock, If there are other demands, then change the promise date of the demand if sales demand, or the start date of production orders if for production.Generally, my preference is to review the exceptions message first for Late and Expedite messages because they have the most impact.
I use the Wikis as part of training so user know where to find the how to information. Having open access to the standard wiki is a good idea. As a former ISV who had to create and maintain our product’s wiki, having to fix access rights was a waste of time. So you need to extend the open access to all ISV wikis but you could make this an option on the Wiki for those clients who wish restrict access.
A customer mentioned the Enterprise Edition of Bar Tender has API’s that can be used to integrate with Acumatica. https://www.seagullscientific.com/solutions/integrations-and-technology/erp-and-business-systems/ https://www.seagullscientific.com/solutions/integrations-and-technology/integrations-with-bartender/
That relies on users. The ideal solution would require the supplier to confirm the PO and that action update the PO to how that the supplier confirmed. Something like confirming a recipient read an email and replied. Or something like DocuSign. We will look at Source Day.
This is an example I set up and tested with the store setting for Availability Mode for Available and Available for Shipping. According to the client, the available calc should be 10 for there are 10 units available in WHOLESALE.When set to Available the store shows a qty of 8 When set to Available for Shipping it shows 20
