Need to know how to close out the final step to cost your work orders?
WIP Finalization is the Final Step to Cost your Work Orders
This can also be accomplished when you close a Work Order if you answer Yes to the question: “Production Cost Calculation?”
If you answer ‘No’ to this question when closing a Work Order then you must run WIP Finalization (Costing > Production Cost > WIP Finalization) to Cost the Work Order.
Many customer’s want to run WIP Finalization daily or weekly as a recurring task.
This can be done but there is a slight caveat for the parameters of this function.
To set this up as recurring task to go Usage > Batch Server > Recurring Task Management
Set up a new task similar to the one shown below using your folder name and the days and times that you want this to run.
This example runs every day at 9:00 AM
After entering the above information you must set up the parameters. Click on Parameters on the right and this screen will come up. Enter the site and then click on the action button beside Order no. – you must select something here. To get this to run for all the Closed (but not Costed ) Work Orders you need to put in a filter – so select ‘WO Filter’
When this screen comes up you can just enter the following – this will only choose Closed Work Orders – so if you put the formula in below it will choose all Closed Work orders that are Not equal to 1.
Then click Ok and close the page.
Check the Active button and Save. Now WIP Finalization will run every day and cost all the closed Work Orders.
