The RAF journal posting process can be set up to "backflush" the BOM lines based on the quantity reported, but you cannot post a route card journal using this process. This means that if you intend to auto post time, you must do it at "Start" which will consume all of the route time leaving no load on capacity, or you must use the RAF status posting process that does not lend itself to posting multiple RAF quantities with different batch numbers.

Enable a set up option to allow route card posting each time an RAF journal line quantity is posted.

Thank you for your feedback.

This is a great suggestion! We will consider this in our roadmap.

As I continue to run into this problem, I have come to the conclusion that this gap in Dynamics AX basically makes the use of finite capacity planning and scheduling impractical if not unusable as we are faced with consuming capacity by manual rout card reporting, auto consuming all capacity at Start, or auto posting route card journals from RAF status update transactions, which is not desirable from a security perspective.

All third party data collection solutions post RAF through the journal approach, so again, route card journals will not be created if you are using this approach to reporting production.

Unless a production order has a very short cycle time, capacity should be consumed as the production order spends the capacity while in progress.
