Output Journal is not updating the "Finished Quantity" on the RPO

  • 1.  Output Journal is not updating the "Finished Quantity" on the RPO

    Posted 15 days ago
    We are running NAV 2017.  We have a Released Production Order stuck in the system.  We have checked everything and cannot figure out why when we posted  the Output Journal (RPO Lines > Line > Production Journal > update Output Quantity > check "Finished" Box > Post) did not change the "Finished Quantity".  We cannot change the status to "Finished" because we get a message that some output is still missing.  So we say to to "Do you still want to finish the order?"

    Anyone have this happen?  Anyone know what happened or how to fix it?

    Thanks

    Did you check the item card item ledger and see if there was output on that RPO?  If not, you may need to re-run the Production Journal again on the RPO.  While in that area you can see if there was output at the end of each step in the routing, there may have been a step that there was not output and then others could not post output as well.

    We've checked the Item's ledger entries and there is no output for it.  That is one of the issues because we can't figure out why.

    If no Item Entries are created, then you are not posting Output on the Last Operation of the Production Order.  The last Operation is the only one that updates Item Ledger Entries.

    As Kevin noted, the "Finished" flag only updates the Operation Status and does not control the output or Status of the Production Order.

    Do NOT change the Production Order to "Finished" without figuring out your Output.  The move to Finished status will lock the Production Order from any additional postings.  It does not control the Output posting.

    Thanks so much for the replies.  I'll just keep working on it.  I can't figure out what is stopping the output.

    Not sure if you resolved this yet. 

    We have seen output not posted, but components consumed. Zero out all components on the RPO (because they are already consumed) and post. If this does not work, check operation no. and make sure you have the column "next operation" right next to it. If there is an operation showing, it is putting it to the next operation instead of outputting it. You have to "blank out" this field.

    Checking the Finished flag only sets the operation / routing line to finished in the production order routing.
    It will not change the Order Status to finished, you need to change the order status from released to finished.
    Did you post output on the final operation of the order?  The last operation is the only operation that will update inventory?
    Does the quantity Output match the production order quantity, if not it may still be expecting more output.
    It will not change the Order Status to finished, you need to

    Still some out put is pending.
    You have to complete the final operation too.
    Once it finished you have to change the status to "Finished" and post the "Production Journal" from the RO line.

    Please check the routing operations and ensure all operations are finished prior to change status.
