Over-posting to Released Production Orders

  • 1.  Over-posting to Released Production Orders

    Posted Jan 30, 2020 04:04 PM
    Hello,
    We are running BC 365 on-premise [but the problem was noticed in 2013R2, also].
    Is there any way to prevent our work floor from over-posting to an open order?
    For example: RO is open for 200, if there are enough raw materials at location, nothing prevents the work floor from posting 250 units to this job.
    Is there a way to stop the additional posting?

    Thanks,

    Standard NAV/BC allows you to produce more than the Production Order Qty and you should be able to see the cost variances.

    Are they "over-posting" in error or are they actually producing more than what the order called for?

    over-posting in error -  posting a partial pallet before break, then re-posting the same pallet after.

    EX: pallet = 40 cases.
    cases produced before break = 21
    cases posted = 21

    cases produced after break = 19 [pallet completed]
    cases posted = 40

    Many of our jobs are not typically very large, so all of the required materials are brought to the line as part of the setup. So until the materials run dry, they can post whatever. If the materials never run out, there is no limit to what can be posted to the job. Backing out the transactions requires a whole lot of extra effort from other departments. I was just wondering if there was some way to put a hard stop on certain orders.

    Thanks,

    Beth - As Lewis stated by design NAV/BC allows posting more Output than planned. To not allow over posting would require a modification. There is a setup available to replace reporting and posting output with an auto-post of the planned Output when the Production Order is finished but this setup is not always practical to a company's process - for large quantity longer running production orders as an example..

    Best Regards

    We had this same problem, and since we don't ever do over-postings, I did a modification on the post to check for that and error out when the qty is already posted.
