i have transaction :
1. I buy an un-fuctional machine (damage) from third party,
2. I fix it, by using mechanic hours
3. I use part of good machine to damage machine
4. then ready to sale.
how to handle this transaction, I'm not a manufactured company.
For No 1:
Have you setup the damaged machine as an inventory item or do you use something else for tracking it?For No 2:
Fixing means only that you do some repair services that is that you only require people's time doing the repair or do you also need spare parts and other things to do the repair?
For No 3:
Can you elaborate what you mean here exactly? Do you 'destroy' a good machine to get the parts necessary for repairing the damaged one or did I get you wrong here?
Would be great if you could clarify those questions.
hi ludwig, thanks for your response
For No 1:
Have you setup the damaged machine as an inventory item or do you use something else for tracking it?
==> yes, i treat as inventory item (let say item code : DMG-001 damage machinery). the root of damage is "cable"
For No 2:
==> while doing service for damage machine, i use my resources, also i have cost of hour for my technical.
==> beside i'm using my technical to fixing this machine, i also using other part of inventory from other machine in good condition (let say item code : FG-001 - good machine), i release the cable of FG-001 then i put it on damage machine.
Do you think about simply adjusting the cost of the machine by the charge after invoicing PO?
And reduce the cost of good machine.
I need process of assembly the "cable" i take out from good machine - capture cost of technical - capture of finish of repairing.
I don't think that you can handle the complete process without a proper 'production' configuration.
You need to record hours that increase the value of the damaged good and then you have spare parts that are used for the repair.
What I still do not understand is why you 'destroy' a good product for the repair of the damaged one? What is the reason for doing that. Just by reading your description here, this does not make sense to me from an econmic perspective. Can you explain us why this happens just for curiosity?
What I still do not understand is why you 'destroy' a good product for the repair of the damaged one? ==> we have not stock yet for certain "cable", so to make it short for repair, we take out from good machine first.
Good Morning Agus,
I see :-)
Yet also this taking out from a good machine needs to be recorded somehow through a proper production/service related process. Otherwise, you will end up with a mess in your warehouse.
so you mean i should use complex production in AX to capture my scenario ?
I think so. Otherwise you might end up with a complete mess in your inventory.
its not sensible to offer consulting advice on such limited information. For example we don't know how many repairs a day, how long a repair, how many service engineers and steps, how significant is the labour/material; cost etc and what level of control and admin is justified. If you don't manufacture then you likely don't use BOMs
There are many approaches.
1 Look at the Service module for repairs - effectively to book labour and material to a job card
2. Simplistically just add a sales line for each item you want to charge to the customer. Create service items (i.e.no inventory) for the different labour with appropriate sales/cost price and add these as sales order lines for the required quantity of hours of each, and similarly add lines for each item of inventory you use for spare parts.
3. for more complex scenarios use Production or Product builder, etc.
