17.9.1 pc/MRP does not adjust the inventory correctly

If you have versions 6.49AX, or 6.53M or lower, you receive an assembly, select "convert parts to assy" and select "both", pc/MRP does not deduct the subassemblies. Call Software Arts for update and in the mean time select "parts only" if you use this option.

17.9.2 On order quantity not adjusted correctly

On order quantities are adjusted to 0 when running purchasing audit PO and adjust onorder qtys.
Edit that part number and check PO Ratio. If it is set to 0, replace with 1.

17.9.3 Inventory Movement Report Starting Date Contains the Incorrect Quantities.

Versions 6.80AF, 6.82AE, 6.87C, and lower did not update the last quantity WIP field if the user selected not to include WIP when taking an physical inventory. These lower versions of pc/MRP uses the last quantity WIP field to calculate the starting balances. All versions higher will transfer the correct WIP quantity to the last quantity WIP field if the user selects to not include WIP. (Which the user should not include WIP as the WIP quantity should be corrected prior to taking a physical inventory.) If the user selects to include WIP during a physical inventory, pc/MRP will transfer the WIP counts to WIP. This could cause problems as pc/MRP decrements WIP based on what was issued through the stockroom module by specific sales orders. Users must update to a newer version for this report to work properly.

17.9.4 Entering a receiver does not adjust the partmaster's onhand quantity correctly.

pc/MRP versions 7.02 and higher will display an error message if any of the above occurs. If the wrong part number was increased in version 7.02 and higher, pc/MRP will automatically restore the wrong part number's quantity. Special code was created for Eflow creates a record of every adjustment in the Audit Trail module. To display a record of the onhand adjustment, select "Audit Trail, select the "User" window, enter user as "R" plus the receiver number and the last 3 digits of the item number (example: R123456001) and click on the "Search" button.


17.9.5 Stockrooms ‘Receive back from manufacturing does not decrement the WIP qty nor does it increment the qty returned of one or more of the component parts.
