E1: 31P: Negative PA Commitments are Generated Due To Component Issues (IM) before Work Order Start Date (Doc ID 1613105.1)

When a WO Parts list is created the Commitment is made for the start of the WO. Creating PO’s reduces this commitment. The residual commitment is associated with Line Type S Comments. If the related components are actually issued early (so the WO is started before the start date), then a negative commitment is generated. This has major impacts in Job Cost for Projected Final Amounts, and thus Revenue Recognition calculations.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create ETO Project with Full JC Interface, Order Process
  a. Generate Quote
  b. Upload Budget
  c. As required repost all commitments (PA)
  d. Create PO’s for SC items (thus generating PO Commitments distinct to WO Commitments in F43199 and F0902)
  e. Review Commitment related Files V4801JH, F43199 and F0902 for dates and amounts
2. Issue Material for Line Type S Item thus relieving WO Commitment
  a. Run Manufacturing Accounting and Post the Batch
3. In Job Status Inquiry
  a. Review Projected Final for end of current period
  i. Note the negative Commitment
  ii. Note the Projected final amount
