My inventory is growing instead of reducing.. Is there something wrong with the BOMs?

When I run an inventory report.. I notice that the inventory is growing instead of reducing it.. the person who set this up is no longer in my company.. I need to know if he set up something wrong when the software was installed initially.

    is there really not a single consultant or key user left in your company who can look into this case with you?

    The information you provided unfortunately lacks on detail to answer this question intelligently, it leaves only a lot room for guesses.

    You did not say which transaction you used to "run an inventory report" . Assuming it would be MMBE or MB52, how can you know that the inventory has increased? This would only be possible by comparing it with a report from the same transaction which was executed a few hours or days earlier.

    But even then, does it really tell you anything about the root cause? If something is produced but not yet sold then its natural that the inventory increases. The same is the case if it was produced and shipped but someone missed to press the button to do a goods issue in SAP.

    As you also talk about BoMs which could be wrong setup, it seems you think that a production should have consumed raw material while it actually increased it. You have to provide us with some facts or screenshots that show such movements .

    From my point of view it is very unlikely that "he" set it up wrong. How long are you live? Had your business never done any testing before going live and reviewed it again after going live during the hyper care phase?
