We have a client using MRP forecasts in Build 23.104.0027. Demand Time Fence in MRP settings is set to 30 days. MRP Prefefences, Demand Time Fence set to 30 days. According to help, this is “The number of days within which the system excludes forecast records from demand data; the period starts from the day when MRP is performed. Forecasts are ignored by MRP if they have a start date specified on the Forecast (AM202000) form that is earlier than the MRP run date minus the number of days specified in this box.”MRP was regenerated today, Nov 16, 23. This is the forecast for one part, 14 per month. Since it is mid November, I would expect MRP to skip the Dec forcast demand since it is within 30 days. But, this is the MRP Detail Inquiry for this part. Anyone know how MRP is actually using that Demand Time Fence number, or how to get MRP to skip forecast demand within 30 days?
When we process the Transfer Order using the MRP Display screen, the line falls off immediately, but when we Regen the MRP, it comes back. Why does it come back when there is a Transfer Order in for it? The Transfer Order is from the Sales Order, which creates a Demand type, not a supply type. But shouldn’t that create a new line of demand on the MRP Display? It does not create a new line, it only brings back the same line we just selected and created the Transfer Order from. Is there a setting to get that line to stay off after transacting against it? Or is there a way to make MRP create a Transfer Order that would look like supply and link it to the Sales Order that it was processed for?
We have a customer that builds large assemblies. The welding of these assemblies spans several days. Since the Bill of Material/Production Order Details only allow up to 23:59 for Run Time, we are entering fractional Run Units to plan hours >= 24:00 per operation. For example, if the planned hours are 250 hrs for a weld operation, we would enter 0.04 Run Units at 10:00 Run Time.However, there are some cases however where we cannot plan the hours accurately due to run units only being 2 decimal precision. Has anyone else run into this and have another solution?Thanks!LF
I have client that needs to remove items from production to be used for other purposes. For example, they produce 10 widgets and at the move they want to put 8 into inventory and charge 2 to scrap expense account. The client backflushes material and labor.I configured the system as follows:In the related work center, I set the scrap action to Write Off In the Production Order Preferences, I marked the checkbox to Include Scrap in Completions so the order completes since there will be no additional items produced I created a reason code with a usage type Production. The Acumatica help guide says the reason code should be of the type Production Scrap, but this is not an option.When the move transaction is initiated, using the example above, 8 items are completed and put in inventory, but, at a cost of all 10. The reason code field is not editable, and I cannot figure out how it gets populated.Any insight into what I am doing wrong would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
I have an item that we purchase through MRP and use in manufacturing. This item is in base unit LF and we purchase in Rolls. When purchasing in Rolls, you must buy a full roll - it is not divisible.In the Create PO pop-up, it converts the LF to Roll which is great but it doesn’t seem to round up and so the PO can’t be created.I must be missing something here. How can I get the quantity to round up? It should always be a full number (1,2,3,4,5 rolls, etc.)
Hello All,I am attempting to create a bill of material to process packaging. The amount of material that we package changes very often, but each finished product still only requires one of each packaging material.For example: One order may call for 20 widgets, and it will require one box and one strap to package it. Another order may call for 18 widgets, but still requires the same one box and one strap for packaging.In creating the bill of material I’d like to make the amount of packaging material fixed and w/o making a plethora of BOMs to cover every potential order I may encounter (there are a lot). I’d like to do this without allocating fractions of material (i.e. divide one box by 20 so the system generates one full box for a order of 20 widgets).It seems like this should be a common occurrence, and I’d expect the system to have a solution for this. Am I missing something?
I have customers that are process manufacturers that make materials that cannot be disassembled. The materials are produced and reported through a Move transaction. The Move transaction is designed to allow for you to scrap completed items on the Production Order but not to Reject and Rework completed items.Has anyone else developed a customization or process that they have found to work well for Rejecting a finished good, segregating the materials in a Material Review location, and then either scrapping, reworking, or returning to regular stock?
Hi is there an easier way to generate production tickets for the many levels of sub assemblies when using MRP for replenishing stock items? Seems like a pain to run MRP Generation to create the parent, then keep re-running it over and over to generate all the children. Any suggestions? thank you
Hello, i set up an OVHD ID, “payroll” type as variable by labor cost.. factor =”1” and my labor cost per hour is $15 in BOM.on the testing production ticket: 2 labor trans.. one last for 1 hour labor cost =$15 ( correct) , but “payroll” ovhd = $4.5 ( expected $15) 2nd labor last for around 1 min.. and labor cost = $.25 ( correct) , but “payroll” ovhd cost =$.08(expected $.25) can someone shed some light please?thank youZoey
