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.
The Work In Process report shows the following:
Yet the exception tracker shows this:
I cannot figure out what is triggering the exception. Any thoughts on what I can check?
