Chuck, Using JIT 600 or SFC 650 the second screen where the components are issued if you revise the component line item you can change the quantity of the component being used. This will allow you to only issue the components required to make the product. The components that are scrapped will show as a "CS" (component scrap transaction). This way you will not have to do a reverse "CI" and the components that were just scrapped could just be relieved. If you really want to cost for the components correctly you should establish the operation they are used in the bill of material, by using the operation field. Then even if you backflush components they will only be used when production is reported at the operation requiring them. Example: Part xyz requires 1 part B , 1 part A and 1 part C. Part A and B are used at operation 10 and part C is used at operation 20. You report 50 good units complete at operation 10 and 5 scrap. If you have components A and B specified at operation 10 on the BOM. The quaintly to be issued on the second screen of SFC 650 would show a quantity of 55 A's and 55 B's. You actually used 60 A's 5 more A's were scrap. All you have to do is revise the A component line and add a quantity of 5 to the "Quantity Rejected" line. Post your production and you will have 3 transactions a "CI" of 55 A's, "CS" of 5 A's and "CI" of 55 B's. Nothing for part C until you report the last operation 20. If you cannot take the time to make sure the components have the correct operation of use. In this same example as you report against the last operation just change the "Quantity Good" for the component and use the "Quantity Rejected" for relieving the component inventory that never made it to the product. It should satisfy you basic requirements. If you report at every operation specifying the operation for the components on the BOM will be more accurate, but if you only report at the last operation just revise the quantities and use the component reject. I hope this helps!!! Regards, David P.
