E1: 31: Work Order Status FAQ (P48013/R31410) (Doc ID 1272863.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 27, 2020

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Shop Floor Control - Version XE to 9.2 [Release XE to 9.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Purpose

This document provides answers to frequently asked questions regarding work order statuses prior to the enhancement available in release 9.2 of EnterpriseOne.

In 9.2, users who install the ESU for Enhancement Bug 29500686 will see work order activity rules functionality for manufacturing similar to what’s provided for equipment maintenance and sales and purchase order processing, to establish the allowable steps that an order can take from beginning to end.

The enhanced functionality includes:
• A Manufacturing Constants control to turn on Work Order Activity Rules for a specific branch. The constant allows customers to continue using the base software functionality or to activate the new functionality. The Manufacturing Constants control also provides a smooth transition as rules would not be turned on until the set up is complete.

• Set-up application for creating Order Type/Doc Type combination Work Order Activity Rules that defines Next Status and Other Allowed Statuses.

• Status Validation per Activity Rules. With the Activity Rules Flag in Manufacturing Constants set to ‘Y’:

  1. Status changes are validated against activity rules, when an update status is specified that is not in the status flow, a hard error is generated
  2. Beginning status is retrieved from activity rules if none is specified in a processing option
  3. Status is updated according to activity rules if ‘*’ is specified in a processing option
  4. For reports, when specified new status is not in the status flow, the record is printed on an exception report and not processed
