When is material issued in Work Order for Sage 100

Description

When is material issued in Work Order

Resolution

The manner in which materials are issued in Work Order depends on the Material Issue Method and the Auto Issue Method.

Automatic issues material when the work order is released.

Backflush issues Material when the work order is complete.

Manual issues have to be created by the user after the work order is released and before the work order is closed.

Automatic
The Automatic issue method allows for more accurate material, labor, and outside processing usage planning so that shortages can be discovered and accounted for early in the manufacturing process. You can specify the Automatic issue method for a work order by selecting Automatic at the ‘Issue Method’ field on the Work Order Entry Header tab.

Use the Automatic issue method to generate material, labor, and outside processing transactions automatically when the work order is released. Material, labor, and outside processing transactions are issued if Yes or Available Quantity Only is selected at the Auto Issue Material field and the Auto Generate Labor and Auto Generate Out-Process check boxes are selected on the Work Order Entry Additional tab. Selecting Yes at the Auto Issue Material field issues all component items for a work order automatically when the work order is released. Selecting Available Quantity Only at the Auto Issue Material field issues component items up to available quantities of those items automatically.

When a release transaction is recorded in Work Order Transaction Entry for a work order using the Automatic issue method, the system generates material, labor, and outside processing transactions automatically for the work order after the Work Order Transaction Journal update is completed. After the release transaction is updated, the Work Order Transaction Entry can be reselected to edit the automatically generated material, labor, and outside processing transactions prior to printing the Work Order Transaction Journal and updating to the permanent files.

Backflush
The Backflush issue method is normally used by companies that have a very short processing time or are set up as a production line. This method is also useful for companies that issue work orders for large quantities of finished goods but complete them over a period of time and pull components from floor stock. By backflushing material, labor, and outside processing transactions at the time of completion, the inventory valuation is more accurately reflected than if these transactions were issued automatically at the time of release. You can specify the Backflush issue method for a work order by selecting Backflush at the Issue Method field on the Work Order Entry Header tab.

Use the Backflush issue method when material, labor, and outside processing transactions are to be automatically generated when entering a completion transaction. Material, labor, and outside processing transactions are issued if Yes or Available Quantity Only is selected at the Auto Issue Material field and the Auto Generate Labor and Auto Generate Out-Process check boxes are selected on the Work Order Entry Additional tab.

When you record a work order completion transaction in Work Order Transaction Entry for a work order using the Backflush issue method, the system generates material, labor, and outside processing transactions for the work order automatically. The quantity of material issued depends on the quantity of the finished product completed. You can edit the automatically generated material issue transactions before printing the Work Order Transaction Journal and updating to the permanent files.

Manual
The Manual issue method allows you to accurately record material, labor, and outside processing transactions issued to a work order as they are used in the manufacturing process. The increase in the amount of manual data entry required for this method is offset by the accuracy of inventory valuation and quantity in stock. You can specify the Manual issue method for a work order by selecting Manual at the Issue Method field on the Work Order Entry Header tab.

Use the Manual issue method to issue individual material, labor, and outside processing transactions to the work order. If this method is used, material, labor, and outside processing transactions are issued to a work order by manually recording these transactions using Work Order Transaction Entry.

Regardless of the issue method specified for a work order, you can always manually enter material, labor, and outside processing transactions in Work Order Transaction Entry after the work order is released.
