Register Non-Stocked Materials for a Work Order

This document explains how you connect nonstocked materials to a work order.

The instruction can be used to register materials that were not purchased through the normal purchasing cycle.


A transaction is created in 'WO Costing. Display' (CAS305) after 'Internal Account Entry. Create' (CAS950) is run.

The material can be used in the work order process. The registered cost will give you an accurate costing for the job.

Information about work order materials is saved in the (MMOMAT) table.

Before you start

The starting conditions listed in Issuing Tools and Materials and Handling Permits must be met.

Follow these steps

  1. Start 'Work Order. Open Line' (MOS101/B).

    The program can be reached either from 'Work Order. Open' (MOS100), option 'Materials/operations', or via 'Work Schedule. Open' (MOS130), option 'Work order lines'.

  2. Set the sorting order to 1 and the panel sequence to M.

  3. Specify the item number of the new material, a new sequence number, and the number of the operation to which the material will be connected.

  4. Select 'Create' to create the new material line.

  5. On the M panel, specify a quantity and issue method 0.

    Issue method 0 means that the transaction status is set to 90 as soon as the transaction is completed.

  6. Specify a price that is not zero in the 'Component price' field. Press Enter.

    The status of the material line is raised to 90-'Reported', and flagged as completed, if 'Auto close nonstock items' is enabled in 'Work Order Type. Open' (MOS120) or 'WO Type. Connect Facility Parameters' (MOS122) and there is a specific setup for the facility.
