Work order workflow

You use standard Kit Production processing in Distribution SX.e to create work orders. The cost of the customer-owned kit or component product is obtained from Product Warehouse Product Setup-Costs and stored on the work order. The number of customer-owned components that are used and the customer net available amounts are tracked.

These steps outline the kit production workflow in a Storeroom-managed warehouse:

  1. A kit work order is created in KP Work Order Center Entry or by the KP Entry Recommended Work Orders Report.

    See Creating work orders with the KP Entry Recommended Work Orders Report.

    After a work order is printed, you cannot change the work order except for the quantity.

  2. Component stock items are picked, and then the kit product is assembled.
  3. The number of kits built is updated in Storeroom Receipts.

    See Work order updates.

  4. The work order is accepted and updated automatically in Distribution SX.e with actual quantities, which includes customer-owned and distributor-owned component quantities.
  5. If a combination of customer-owned and distributor-owned components were used to build the kit product, these actions occur:
    1. A Bill on Receipt sales order is created for distributor-owned components.
    2. The Sales Entry Processing Invoice Processing Report is run to invoice the Bill on Receipt sales order.
  6. Whether all customer-owned or all distributor-owned, costs are rolled up from the components to the kit product, and inventory levels are updated in Product Warehouse Product Setup.
  7. Inventory transactions are created. Transactions for customer-owned inventory movements are stored in the ICETC table. Transactions for distributor-owned inventory movements are stored in the ICET table.
  8. A General Ledger journal is created to update the Inventory Control account for any distributor-owned kit products that are created. This table shows the journal entry:
