On : 12.1.3 version, WIP Costing
backflush of a lot controlled component, in a serial-tracked job where the transaction is Flagged as Final Completion, is being costed after the wip completion transaction.
This is obviously incorrect, and will give rise to Job Variances at job close
no job close variance
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. average costing org, project job for serial tracked assembly.
This was first job for this assembly for this project/project cost group.
All components issued (2 Push components).
No existing costs for assembly in project cost group.
Job qty was for 19 off.
19 individual WIP Completion transactions performed, 1 for each serial number using MES (assembly pull transaction of single component automatically performed by each transaction).
The job was substantially over relieved, with one transaction being significantly overcosted and several transactions generating Final Completion Variances.
The project cost type for the assembly now has a cost that overvalues the stock on hand
If one of the completion transactions was accidentally flagged as 'Final Completion' before the actual last transaction, I would expect that transaction to be 'overvalued' and the subsequent transactions at zero cost, so that the overall value of the completion transactions equals the cost incurred, so that the stock valuation is correct.
