How to: Use the Manufacturing Batch Unit of Measure

How to: Use the Manufacturing Batch Unit of Measure

If an item is stocked in one unit of measure but produced in another, a production order is created that uses a manufacturing batch unit of measure to calculate the correct quantity of the components during the Refresh Production Order batch job. An example of a manufacturing batch unit of measure calculation is when a manufactured item is stocked in pieces but produced in tons.

The manufacturing batch unit of measure is used as the Unit of Measure Code on the production BOM header. Once the header is completed, the component lines are added, using quantities that reflect the amount needed to produce the item in the designated batch unit of measure.

While the manufacturing batch unit of measure is set up on the production BOM, it can also be set up on production orders that require a unit of measure that is different than the one specified on the production BOM.

To create a production BOM using a batch unit of measure

  1. The manufacturing batch unit of measure is set up as an alternative unit of measure in the Item Units of Measure window on the item to be produced. The batch unit of measure will not replace the base unit of measure on the item.

    If it doesn't already exist, you may need to add the manufacturing batch unit of measure code to the Units of Measure window. If the column is not visible, open the shortcut menu for the column headings, and then choose Choose Columns to add it.

  2. Create a production BOM for the item set up with the manufacturing batch unit of measure. For more information, see How to: Create Production BOMs.

    1. In the Unit of Measure Code field, select the manufacturing batch unit of measure.

    2. For each production BOM line, in the Quantity Per field, enter the quantity of this component item that is required to create this batch unit of measure.

  3. Open the Item Card for the related item.

    On the Replenishment FastTab, in the Production BOM No. field, select the production BOM created above.

  4. Create a production order header using the item set up with the manufacturing batch unit of measure. For more information, see How to: Create Production Order Headers.

  5. On the Actions tab, in the Functions group, choose Refresh, and then choose the OK button.

On the Lines FastTab, choose ActionsAction Menu icon, choose Line, and then choose Components to view the result. The program calculates the correct quantity of the components needed to satisfy the production BOM based on the manufacturing batch unit of measure.

To calculate a manufacturing batch unit of measure on a production order

  1. Create a production order header using the item set up with the manufacturing batch unit of measure.

  2. In the Item No. field in the Production Order line, type the same item number used in the header.

  3. In the Quantity field, enter the same quantity used in the header.

  4. In the Unit of Measure Code field, select the manufacturing batch unit of measure code.

  5. On the Actions tab, in the Functions group, choose Refresh.

    1. On the Calculate FastTab, clear the Lines field.

    2. Choose the OK button.

On the Lines FastTab, choose ActionsAction Menu icon, choose Line, and then choose Components to view the result. The correct quantity of the components needed to satisfy the production BOM is calculated based on the manufacturing batch unit of measure.
