I would like to know more in depth about the concept of production order and possible workaround of scenarios.
How will “Stop” a production order affect any calculations of production cost? Will it be affecting the timesheet? If so, how? Does Production Order track real time? Means if I click finish after 5 hours of start production, the system will automatically take that 5 hours into the timesheet?
Once I Stop and make a PO Unstoppable again, I cannot Submit timesheet with Message: Status cannot be “Unstopped”. It should be one of “”, “Draft”, “Submitted”, “Not Started”, “Stopped”, “In Process”, “Completed”, “Cancelled” - What is the rationale here?
How do I handle this scenario. Let’s say I have 1000 items (BOM) to be manufactured.
In the middle of production, I have to stop production. 500 items has been manufactured.
So I have to:
Click on Finish as I need to let ERPNext know that a certain quantity has been manufactured.
Thus, Qty Manufactured is 500. I have to click on Finish as Stop does not recognized that some items have been manufactured.
The downside to this is.
- I have to Submit Timesheet, else I am unable to proceed to tell system that 500 has been manufactured
- When I click on Start again, the system request another Material Transfer entry. Shouldn’t it use the Materials that has been transferred to WIP at the beginning of Production Order instead of asking user to transfer again?
- I am unable to make another Timesheet, as system deem the Production Order completed.
Is there a workaround for this scenario?
