I’ve done a lot of work here trying to design some controls via BPM that will greatly reduce the number of job completion exceptions that we’re having. I was reviewing the results when I came across one that would not close. The reason given was “This Job has parts in WIP”.
This was a simple job (should be a Kanban receipt), which required 1 material and 1 operation. The Qty/Per parent is 10 EA for the material. The job production quantity is 2 EA. 20 EA were issued to the job, the labor was entered and the total quantity was reported. Then, 20 EA were received into Inventory.
The material was issued before the operation started.
There were no quantities scrapped or moved to non-conformance.
The labor ticked was closed before the receipt into inventory.
Doug, did you ever come across an issue where the job wouldn’t close because the cost variance was off? More specifically, did you ever have that variance issue with a part that was a part on the fly and was purchased to the job?
