Reported as finished quantity is greater than Started quantity

Posted on by 2,720

Hi,

We have the following scenario with one our clients:

  1. Production order was created, the quantity to produce is 1000 units of a Finished good.
  2. Production order was Started for a quantity of 750 units.
  3. User posted one Report as finished journal for 750 units.
  4. User restored Production order status to Released, so the 750 units Reported as finished are cancelled.
  5. User posted one Report as finished journal for 250 units, then another for 1000, totalling 1250 units.
  6. After posting the Report as finished journals, the production order was Ended.

We tried to replicate this scenario, but we get the following error message: "Quantity reported as finished exceeds the quantity started."

So, the question is, how is it possible to Report as finished more units than the quantity that was indicated when the Production order was started?

    I ended up implemented this by add another field to the production table, if the field is checked, than skip the quantity validation.

    You should be able to inspect the journal and parm records that were left over and verify whether the AcceptError box was checked.  Are you saying that you're certain it wasn't checked and something else must have happened?  Your reply just said "I don't think" but you don't seem certain.

    Hi Brandon

    Thanks for your help, but I don't think this is where the problem resides. We want to try with the Production control parameters  from the Manufacturing execution menu, but it is not enabled

    Hi fgil12,

    From a finance & accounting perspective I would not recommend selecting the "accept error box" as this can create very strange vouchers that you might not be able to follow up and reconcile.

    What is your system version? (AX2012 R2/R3 CU...)

    Once you got the exact system version please have a look at LifeCycle Services for "Reported as finished quantity is greater than Started quantity"

    There seem to be lots of Hotfixes available - one of them is even under Investigation by Microsoft.

    If you are lucky you can find the one that fixes your issue. Otherwise you might need to fix it yourself.

    Hope this helps,

    Ludwig

    Hi Ludwig

    Yes, I agree with you, it is not advisable to mark the Accept error checkbox. AX version is R2 CU7.

    I don't think we require a hotfix in this case, it seems that we can use the Production control parameters under Manufacturing execution menu, but it is not displayed on the Production control module. Do you know how to enable this?

    Aside from the other excellent answers, note that this is possible (but controllable by parameter) if you use the Manufacturing execution module. Since R3 CU9, it has also been possible to use those same parameters to enable and control over-report as finish from the R3 mobile device:

    Hi Guy

    Yes, indeed, we have been reading and it is possible to do this by parameters. Now the problem we are facing is the Manufacturing execution menu is not displayed on the Production control module. How can we enable it?
