Regrind workflow

  1. Create a regrind transaction in Storeroom Inventory Movement to remove a regrind product from the production floor for refurbishment.

    See Sending out a regrind product for repair.

    A regrind number is assigned and a sales order is created in Distribution SX.e for any labor that is associated with the regrind product. The sales order for the regrind labor product is a Direct Order (DO) and is marked as Bill on Receipt.

    If the regrind labor is provided by a third-party vendor, then a purchase order (PO) is created and tied to the sales order.

    The sales order number and purchase order number is included on the Regrind Out transaction in Storeroom.

  2. The regrind product is refurbished. If the regrind product cannot be refurbished, cancel the regrind out transaction.
  3. Receive the regrind product into Storeroom as a Regrind In Receipt transaction from the internal processing area or a vendor.

    See Receiving regrind in products.

    If a PO is tied to the sales order, any cost changes made in Storeroom are applied to the price on the purchase order line. which then updates the cost on the sales order line. The associated sales order and purchase order are then shipped or received automatically in Distribution SX.e. The Regrind In sales order is automatically invoiced if Regrind In or Both is selected in the Auto Invoice Shipped Orders field in Product Warehouse Description Setup-Storeroom.

    If the regrind product is a serial-controlled product that is assigned a serial number at receiving or lot-controlled product, specify a control number. Controlled product entries that are made in Storeroom update Product Extended Serial Number Setup and Product Extended Lot Number Setup.

    If the received amount is less than the original amount, create a back order for the remaining quantity, or cancel the remaining amount. Regrind products that are back-ordered in Storeroom cause the sales order or purchase order in Distribution SX.e to be back-ordered.

  4. After the regrind product is received, these actions occur:
    1. The regrind transaction is made inactive.
    2. Regrind labor products are invoiced as Bill on Receipt orders. The customer is billed for the labor costs that are associated with the regrind product.
    3. The customer On Hand quantity for the regrind product is updated in Product Warehouse Product Setup-Costs.

    You can view the costs that are associated with a regrind order in Sales Order Inquiry-Line Detail.
