B0281 - Work Order history can accumulate excess kit costs

Date: 6 Dec 2001, version: 1.0201, rating: 100, platforms: All

Description: When a WO is received or backflushed and operation history has not been recorded in shopfloor data, the kit cost is applied to all operation history records instead of just the first. This will cause GROSS work order costing errors, out generally by the number of operations. To correct the errors in the data, use File -- Advanced -- Data Peek and Poke to zero excess costs recorded in second and subsequent operation records in the following fields: WOHCMC, WOHCLC, WOHCOC, WOHCOVC, WOHCROC and WOHCTLC. This bug is also fixed in V1.0120 for users still operation under V1.01.

B0284 - Bom Maintenance shows parent issue in place of component issue

Date: 7 Dec 2001, version: 1.0202, rating: 50, platforms: All

Description: In Bom Maintenance, the details shown for the component at the bottom of the window incorrectly show the Engineering Issue for the parent (not the component). Additionally, during Component Add, the issue is blank which results in a message indicating that you are not adding the current issue of the part when (in fact) you are.

Get around: None

Caliach response: wBomMaint

B0285 - Bom Maintenance needs to show part type as description

Date: 7 Dec 2001, version: 1.0202, rating: 10, platforms: All

Description: On the BoM Maintenance window, both the parent details (top of window) and the component details (bottom of window) display the part type as a letter. This is confusing for as issues can be letters (A,B,C,etc.). It is difficult to differentiate between the issue and the part type (A=auto, B=buy). Would it be possible to display the part type as a descriptive word (eg "Automatic", "Buy") in order to solve this problem (like it is on the parts window)? The tooltips make it clear. We have added a text description to the component but there is no room to do the same for the parent type.

Get around: None

Caliach response: wBomMaint

Tracked part "254-112" transaction without an inward ID value. Refer to your program support office". If the issue of the normal quantity is carried out first, and the windows then closed and re-opened, the issue of the extra items alone can then be recorded successfully.

Get around: Issue extra items in a separate session.

Caliach response: oProcessWorks

B0292 - BoM changes when there is a kitted Work Order - unpredictable kit issue requirements

Date: 11 Dec 2001, version: 1.0203, rating: 30, platforms: All

Description: If you modify a BoM for an assembly with current kitted Work Orders and increase a component quantity, a shortage is created for the appropriate quantity. However, where the item is already recorded as a shortage, two shortages for the same item result. This then causes problems when you come to kit the WO shortages. Usually a subsequent part in the BoM is shown as being required. Now only one shortage entry results.

Get around: None

Caliach response: cBom, wWoKitIssue, cVersionNo

B0293 - Issuing shortage items to WO could miscalculate WO costs

Date: 3 Jan 2002, version: 1.0204, rating: 80, platforms: All

B0301 - Return for credit of multiple line items creates errors

Date: 18 Jan 2002, version: 1.0205, rating: 50, platforms: All

Description: When carrying out credit returns for multiple line items, the screen "Returns from Despatched Sales" calculates the return quantities in StUoM correctly from the sales quantity multiplied by the sales multiplier. However, when each item is returned to stock the system calculates incorrectly, using the correct sales quantity, but the sales multiplier from the previous item on the list, leading to incorrect stock entries.

Get around: Adjust by peek-and-poke.

Date: 21 Jan 2002, version: 1.0205, rating: 40, platforms: Windows 2000

B0303 - A/R Change Invoice allowed once after part paid

Description: Create non-despatch invoice - leave window open. Go to Receipts from Customers and pay the invoice line just entered. Return to invoice screen and add line item - on returning to Receipts from Customers screen the new invoice line has been entered as cleared with no amount due, and it is necessary to select the invoice and de-allocate it before it can be genuinely cleared with an allocation. Returning to the invoice screen to add yet another line is correctly prevented, but it was allowed erroneously the first time it was amended.

Get around: Close the invoice window after posting.

Description: Applies when the G/L is one period behind A/R and/or A/P. Post a foreign currency invoice to a local currency A/R or A/P account. Post a foreign currency receipt / payment to the account to match the invoice, but with a different exchange rate (and hence different local currency value). Allocate the payment to the invoice - the currency loss/gain is posted OK, but the posting period for the currency control account and the trade debtor / trade creditor account transactions relating to the exchange loss/gain are posted in the current G/L period rather than the A/R or A/P account (i.e. one period behind), resulting in a control analysis imbalance. The control analysis will remain out of balance (even after the next month end) until the offending transactions are moved as described below.
