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

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.


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
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!!!

Subject: work order scrap

this is really a cost issue.

suppose you issue a length of bar stock to a work order. then you run the
parts, but the first one or two are no good due to a setup problem. how do
you record this?

the issue that i have is how do you remove the value of the component
material that has been issued to WIP.

if you use the qty rejected on the SFC650 screen to report a qty of two
being rejected, BPCS values these rejections at the cost of the completed
parent part of the work order. this includes the component material cost
plus the value added labor and burden. this may over relieve the value in
WIP as not all component parts may have had all operations performed on

our thoughts are that you would have to do a reverse issue of the component
part to take the value of these parts out of WIP and put them back into a
stocking location. then you would scrap them out of the stocking location.
this would remove the value of the components parts that were originally
issued to WIP, but that did not get completed into usable parts.

is there any BPCS transaction that allows component parts to be scrapped
directly out of WIP without having to reverse issue them back into a
stocking location?
