With rework orders supplementary operations can be added to an MTO chain in order to improve the quality of the child items. It can be created from the parent MTO production order for a child element. The rework order will be linked to the MTO chain of the parent production order.
First define an item for rework. Normally this item is only an ‘Inventory’ item as it is used only internally. Then create the rework BoM for this item that includes all the operations and materials needed for the rework.
Add the code of the rework item to the ‘Rework Order special BoM item code’ field on the Production order tab of Produmex Manufacturing settings.
Rework order can be created from the parent MTO production order. Select the line of the assembly material in question the select the ‘Create Rework Order’ option from the right-click menu.
The created rework order will open up.
The order type will be ‘Special’ and the BoM loaded in the order is the BoM of the rework item defined on the ‘Rework Order special BoM item code’ field.
The product will be the assembly material and the quantity will be the planned quantity of the material on the parent production order. The rework order inherits its due date from the base production order. The planned quantity for the product will be the planned quantity of the assembly material of the parent production order.
Adjust the rework order manually by adding or modifying material & operation lines that will reflect the specific rework order that has to be performed then click on the ‘Update’ button.
The rework order is automatically added to the MTO chain of the top order. If the parent production order has a Custom Code defined on the Custom Code UDF, the rework order will inherit it.
Execute the rework order in the shopfloor as described in: PDC bookings.
To ensure accurate inventory records, do not receive the product at the end of the job as it has been already received from the job of the child production order.
