    Hi,

    This cannot be addressed through the outside processing feature. You may want to evaluate using the "Manually procure materials for work orders" feature that was introduced in 19A. You can review the readiness training to know more about this feature. The readiness training can be accessed through the following link:

    Hi,

    Currently there isn't a way to address this requirement. Could you please share the details of the use case with examples?

    Hi Sachi,

    We're currently using 19C and we don't need to run any processes manually. When I check Scheduled Processes, I think a process runs automatically. A few of questions:

    1. Was the Enable Genealogy attribute enabled before the transactions took place? 
    2. What transactions were performed? I might be wrong, but Genealogy doesn't show without a Work Order Material Issue occurring?
    3. What version/release are you working with? In earlier releases, the WO Issue needed to occur before the Completion, but this has been fixed in later versions.

    Oswaldo -

    You can ONLY change it from the front end.

    The Rest API (/fscmRestApi/resources/11.13.18.05/itemStructures/{BillSequenceId}/child/Component/{ComponentSequenceId}) does NOT support changing the component UOM. There is a PrimaryUOMCode attribute in there... but it cannot be set.

    That is an important information so I appreciate your help on this. I will open an Idea on this as this is an important process for client without which they will not be able to go live.

    If you create a new work definition version, then delete and add the new input item to an existing operation, this change applies to all the wd versions where the operation is effective (not only to the new wd version).

    The start date and end date fields in the Assign/Edit Operation Item UI apply only to items that come from an item structure. Since there's no reference to an item structure in a process wd, and input items are added as ad hoc items, start date and end date fields are not applicable.

    The thought is to allow use of a formula, which is what represents an item structure in process manufacturing. This will be evaluated based on customers feedback. Feel free to log an idea in the mean time. Thanks.

    Hi Yuana,

    Yes, that is helpful. If i create a new work definition version than I can simply delete and add the new input item in the existing operation as the effectivity is at the WD level not at the operation level but this will result in a lot of WD versions. The effective start and end date field is already there on the component assignment UI page but it is just not updateable. Do I need to log an Idea for this?

  • Yuana Kumala

    By component, I assume you were referring to an operation item (input item). So say the process work definition requires input item A until Nov 30, then input item A will be replaced by input item B starting Dec 1.

    If this is the use case, then you can use operation effectivity to accomplish this. Create a new work definition version, create a new operation by duplicating the existing operation, delete input item A from the new operation, add input item B to the new operation, then delete the existing operation from the new work definition version. Hope this helps.

    Hi Radha,

    Thanks for your quick help. Import completed successfully after passing value as 'Y' for Allow Explosion column.

    Fine Ramesh, Pl specify Allow Explosion (Column V) value as Y and try again.

     

  • Ramesh Manikandan Nair

    Hi Radha,

    Word Order Type is Standard and Work definition is Main, attached template used.

    Thanks
    Ramesh

  • Radhakrishnan Angappan

    Hi Ramesh,

    What type of the work order are you creating? Can you provide the details of the work definition & work order header, being used for the import process.

    Thanks - Radha

    Currently we cannot define the effective start or end date of the items added in the process work definitions. Is there a future release where this would be allowed?

    Hi Jesus,

    I've received a lot of help on this forum, so just trying to return the favour. 

    On my projects, we only managed the bottling process, the winemaking/ blending process was managed in another system. Most companies had purpose built systems for this and it was hard to get them to move away from it. So the experience I talk from is the maturation of the cleanskin.

    However, I can still provide my opinion on your questions. The question I would have for the client is: do they want to use the system to track which wine is in which barrel/ tank, or are they happy with offline systems for that? If they are happy with offline systems it makes it much easier system-wise. You would just complete your work order to a subinventory (e.g. Barrels) and put it on a material status hold until it's ready. 

    If they want it tracked in the system then they need to be willing to do the work to record all the movements. Locators for each barrel with SI transfers makes sense. There's no limit on how many locators they can create so I don't see a problem with 50 tanks and 300 barrels. When they complete their work orders, they can do partial completions and record a quantity into each locator (barrel). Or they can complete it all to one locator and then have someone else split it up. Spreadsheet loaders or FBDI might be a good option to make this quicker.

    Obviously, the best practice would be to track it all in the system, but the company needs to decide what's practical for their business and people. There's no point implementing a system process which no one will or can follow.
