Here are the options -
1. Do nothing to the shop order, then MRP will thing you need 2 more
feet and you will receive the total quantity on the shop order.
2. Adjust the shop order raw material required quantity to 12 feet
nothing to the shop order quantity, then MRP will thing you will receive
the total quantity on the shop order.
2. Adjust the shop order raw material required quantity to 12 feet and
the shop order quantity to the equivalent of 12 feet, then MRP will know
exactly what to expect from the shop order. If there is a requirement
for the additional finished item, a planned order (or exception
reschedule massages) will be generated.

If you have a quick manufacturing process (less that you planning cycle)
and no requirement for the finished quantity that you will be short,
then do option 1.

However, the perfect answerer is option 3. Tell the system what you are
doing. Then everyone that uses the system will believe what the see on
their computer and not second-guess what they see and make phone calls
(or e-mails) asking questions. Or making promises that they cannot keep.

Subject: qty issued to a work order

suppose we cut a work order that requires 14 feet of raw material.
suppose we then go to the stockroom and find a 12 foot bar of raw
material and we issue the 12 feet to the work order. this still leaves a
requirement for 2 feet for that work order. is there any way to tell
bpcs that the 12 feet that was issued is all that is going to be issued
to that work order, ie kill the remaining requirement for the 2 feet?
the only way that i know how to do this is to go into the work order and
change the required qty on the work order to a lesser amount.

how do others handle this situation?
