Scrapping items on a production order

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

What's the best way to scrap items on a production order? For example, once in a while there's a production issue on one of the route operations and all production order items need to go to scrap. The material has been consumed and time has been spent on completed route operations.

Thanks

    Hi Steven..   Can you please details the "write off"  procedure.. I found a comment from you in this post here

    and looks pretty much the same.. I need to report only scrap to a Work order, but as seems I need to report 1 OK, then my Scrap Qty and then Write Off the 1 I RAF.

    However I don't really know how to do that.. I only know how to report it in the Work order..

    Thanks in advance.

    That's exactly how we've been doing it. Doesn't seem very logical but I understand why DAX requires it.

    Thanks all!

    You have to report 1 because AX has to post the costs. A design anomaly/deficiency but we live with what we have. Book 1 in which absorbs all the costs and then write it off (with a movement journal to scrap!)

    Looks like this is a DAX "issue". According to multiple threads posting 1 as good quantity and the rest as error quantity is the best workaround so that DAX can adjust costs. Then that 1 part can be cycle counted. This is the processed that we've been following and I just wanted to check if there was a proper way to handle it.

    I did test this previously and I entered the whole order quantity in error quantity field and then reported that production order as finished. The problem is that I cannot end the production order by clicking on the Process >End button. It throws an error - "Missing report as finished quantity". But if I create a Reported as finished journal with good quantity 1 and then the rest as error quantity, then I'm able to end production order (Process >End button)

    Hi S3rg,

    You can use the bad quantity field on the report as finished job to register this.
