Ending a production order

  • 1.  Ending a production order

    Posted 13 days ago
    Do you know if there's a way that we could end a production order from being reported as finished with 0 quantity and -1 error on materials? The reason for this is that the machine they are trying to repair cannot be repaired anymore but there is labor that needs to be accounted for in the order. We are on D365 F&O version 10.0.15. Thanks for all your help.

    What inventory valuation method are you using?

    Hi Kevin,

    We use Inventory value by Item, by Warehouse if that's what you're asking. Thanks.

    I was not clear.  Are you using standard cost, moving average, weighted average or FIFO to value inventory?

    I believe production orders still require you to report at least one unit as finished if you use standard cost.  I dealt with this issue on AX 2012 about 5 years ago, and there is no way around it.  You can then use a movement journal to remove the item from inventory and charge the expense to your production order variance account.  That will keep the accounting accurate.

    There were four enhancement requests when I was dealing with this.  If you feel particularly ambitious, you can add your vote to all of them.  That will keep the votes from being spread over so many enhancement requests that none of them appear to have a lot of support.

    Hello Florlita,

    Yes, it is possible. Although I am not sure it can be done using Standard Cost. You only have to enter as "1" the "Error quantity" and "0" for the "Good quantity":



    You can also go to the "General" tab to select the "Error cause":


    You might see a message from the system, but the process still can be finished. When you finish the production order, you will have to select the right account for the scrap if you are not using a scrap method.


    Once the production is finished, this is how looks the transaction:


    Hope this helps.

    Best regards,

    You should be able to capture your labor hours with a manual route card posting.  Then you can RAF a quantity of zero and mark the journal as 'End job'.  Go to View > Journals > Route card to determine if you already have a route card created but not posted.  If there is an unposted route card, you can edit the labor hours and set a good quantity of zero.  If you don't already have a route card to edit, click New and create a manual route card with labor hours and a zero good quantity.  Make sure you set the flag for "Operation completed".  Post this and then you can process a Report as finished transaction for a zero quantity.  You will want to use the following settings as a one-time setup.  You may need to set the Accept error to Yes if you have any picking list lines that are not 'Ended' or if you miss the 'Operation completed' flag on the route card.

    Thank you very much Lizzeth and Andrew, but the next problem appears when we tried to end the order. Following your indications, the message is the same:

    And we can't end the production order.

    Any suggestions are welcome, thanks in advance!

    Hello Juan Ángel,

    Sorry for the late response, but I wanted to make some tests before giving you an answer. It seems that for the products with standard cost as inventory model, it is not possible to notify the good quantity in zero.

    If what you need is the evidence in the system that the production began, what I think you could do, is to notify the production as if it has been finished, finish the production order, and then register an inventory movement journal to take out the item quantity, because you don't have it in inventory:


    Maybe you can add a description in the inventory journal to know the reason why you registered it. Also, you might have to check the offset account in the journal and the accounts that will be affected in the item group of the finished good to make the right registers according to the production order.

    I hope that this is useful.

    Best regards,

    ​​

    Thank you very much for your response Lizzeth!

    We don't have standard cost but I can't finish the order with quantity "0".

    I think it is a good idea to to support an existing one:

    Juan - I'm curious about something.  Can you tell me what inventory valuation method you are using if you are not using standard cost?  Is it moving average cost?

    Hello Kevin,

    In my experience with Navision Axapta - Dynamics AX - AX2012 - Dynamics 365 I was never able to close an OF without good quantity. In this case this is the  Item model group;


    Best wishes
