Make it possible to post negative output and/ or negative consumption after finishing a production order (change status to Finished) and automatically correct the cost allocation and all sorts of variances (f.e. Material or Capacity variances).
Sometimes people forget to register consumption or output before finishing a production order. There is no possibility now to correct this. This causes un incomplete item tracking and wrong cost variances.
Allow that a production order can be changed from Finished to Released. From a costing perspective this is already possible because it is possible now to add costs to a subcontracting operation after a production order is finished.
If a finished production is changed to released it should keep the standard cost of the first time of finishing, but this information is already available in the InventoryAdjmtEntryOrder table
Great requeriment!!! It is really necessary to have a functional option to be able to reverse the process.
Usually and for different reasons, we need to change something in a finished purchase order.
It would also be great if there was some type of validation prior to finishing the production order to let the user know if consumption and/or output is either over or under the expected amount. That would prevent trying to fix after it's finished if you are aware there was an issue before hand.
You can fix costs afterwards using item reclassification.
Very good idea!
We have customer who regularly need to change Serial No for Finished Prod. Order, but it is impossible now.
I would like to add one more thing, even before changing the status to finished, there should be a way post negative output qty without affecting the consumption. This is assuming that the raw material consumed is already wasted. if any raw material can be reused it can be adjusted by negative consumption entry.
If 100 pcs are produced and output of 100 posted. Later in QC 10 pcs are rejected. The net output is 90, but the material consumed is for 100 pcs. There should be a way to post negative -10 quantity to adjust the output quantity but this should not affect the consumption posted 100 qty. (assuming the flushing method is not manual). other wise if it posts the negative consumption for 10 qty, the raw material already consumed for the rejected 10pcs will go unaccounted. and also it will show wrong stock for the raw material.
If this can be done the production order will have the correct cost. That is 90 pcs output with the cost 100 pcs.

Thank you for this suggestion! Currently this is not on our roadmap. We are tracking this idea and if it gathers more votes and comments we will consider it in the future.
