Job cannot be re-scheduled

We had an issue in 9.04 where using the Finish-to-Finish Scheduling for operations (Job Entry - Job Details/Operations/Detail/Scheduling Factors) was causing jobs to behave like this in scheduling. The jobs that did not have operations utilizing this behaved normally. 


Epicor recommended changing the problem jobs to Start-to-Start with a send ahead offset for similar results and the problem was solved. I'm not sure if the most recent patch addresses this issue but it was a problem on a late version of 9.04 and we haven't experimented with it since we've moved to 9.05.

We have a 2 operation job in E9.05 that resist re-scheduling.  Op 10 is complete, some labor has been reported to Op 20.  We parked the job for a while by un-releasing, unscheduling, and un-engineering it.  We now want to reschedule it but the rescheduling activity just puts the old dates (now since gone by) back into place.  We want to place a finish date of 2/3/2014 but the job keeps getting an end date of the last labor transaction, 10/1/2013.


We would appreciate any insight as to why the job cannot be rescheduled to a new end date.

Try checking “Override Material Constraints” when backward scheduling.

We have a 2 operation job in E9.05 that resist re-scheduling.  Op 10 is complete, some labor has been reported to Op 20.  We parked the job for a while by un-releasing, unscheduling, and un-engineering it.  We now want to reschedule it but the rescheduling activity just puts the old dates (now since gone by) back into place.  We want to place a finish date of 2/3/2014 but the job keeps getting an end date of the last labor transaction, 10/1/2013.

 

We would appreciate any insight as to why the job cannot be rescheduled to a new end date.

Also make sure the checkbox in  the Scheduling Priority section is not checked.

This was a bug in our 9.05 installation.  We had to get a fix from Epicor.  Happened to multiple jobs though, more just kept popping up after the first one.  I'd keep an eye on that.

Oh- we were sometimes able to fix it by removing the job from the schedule, then rescheduling it.  But it didn't always work.
