Discontinuation&Production Order



We have the situation where actual production (reported to the production order) may sometimes be larger than the planned quantity (the quantity on the production order). This is not a problem.

The problem arises when in such an order there is a component that has a follow-up material defined in MRP 4 view. In this case the system behaviour is such that it will withdraw (backflush) the original component up to the planned production quantity, and then will withdraw any additional production quantity from the follow-up material.

We will like that the system withdraw all from the original component, because the follow-up material is usually not in stock yet at this point in time, and we get COGI errors in vain.

Thanks in advance for your inputs,
