In the June 5th post, we discussed "Move Order On Down The Road!" about Pending Transactions related to move orders. Two of many other common Pending Transaction types is a Work In Process (WIP) Completion or a WIP Issue transaction. Pending WIP Completion and Issue transactions can be tricky if you have processing issues. In Support we have seen examples where WIP Completion or Issue transactions have been duplicated, hence creating duplicate WIP Pending Transactions that either won't process or create duplicate Material Transactions historical records. Particularly if the WIP Pending Transactions won't process, they could prevent period close, making them highly visible during month end processing. Don't fret; again The Inventory Social Media Team is here to guide you to a solution.
If you process a lot of WIP Completion and WIP Issue transactions, and you want to check for duplicates, a great place to start diagnosing is note, Duplicate Pending (MMTT) WIP : How To Verify If Pending WIP Completion And Issue Transactions In MMTT Are Duplicates Or Not (Before Resubmitting Or Deleting) (Doc ID 1073279.1)
.Doc ID 1073279.1
contains identification sql scripts, root cause analysis, and solution suggestions if you determine you have WIP duplicates. We would also suggest Doc ID 333572.1
, which contains an attached Word document which provides details on how to review pending work order transactions; Diagnosing WIP Related Transaction and Data Issues (Doc ID 333572.1)
Duplicate WIP Completion or WIP Issue pending transactions can be tricky, but with the right tools you can turn a period close tsunami into a smooth sailing.
