I need some help understanding what we need to do. This is probably very simple, but I have never gotten a really good answer…
- We have a job for 100 EA of Part X
- We issue all the materials to said job.
- We clock in/out of each operation and report quantity.
- In our next to last step, we have two that fell outside of tolerances and had to be “scrapped”.
- We reported 98 in the labor quantity, and 2 in non-conformance. (We marked the operation complete).
- The last operation we report 98 in the labor quantity and mark the operation complete.
- We then receive 98 to inventory.
The job will not complete because
This Job has parts in WIP. In addition, there is still costs on the job.
We had three Ops consultants during implementation, one of which I had to train for most of what we were trying to accomplish. One which was decent on most things, but not strong towards the financial links between MFG and GL. The last one was really good, but he was only there for a couple of months and he had to try to work with us to undo a lot of the damage done by the previous ones.
It was my understanding from all of this that by reporting Scrap was useless for our purposes, and that by reporting non-conformance we would be removing the costs (the setting is checked) AND the quantities from the job using the DMR process. There are still parts and costs in WIP.
We do not ever go back and produce the rest of the job if we lose some to non-conformance. I have taught my teams that they must follow this procedure in order to have the jobs complete properly, and now the jobs are still failing to complete.
I know about the yield recalculation, but we don’t want to lose the data of how many the jobs were planned for, and how many we actually received. I guess we could get that info through a calculation though…
Is the yield recalculation our only path?
