Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR  

You can move and/or complete assemblies without back flushing of Serially Controlled components

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Backflushing of Serially Controlled components

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Responsibility = INVentory
2. Setup> Organization> Parameters
3. Open for an organization
4. Uncheck Allow negative Balances at the organization level
5. Save
6.  NOTE: The The profile “INV:Override Neg for Backflush” is set to “No”, meaning that we do not allow negative balances in inventory.
7.  Patch 22087936 is applied
8. Create a work order job org/job with 4 operations 10, 20, 30 and 40
9. Release the Work Order. A Serial Number was created/generated.
10.  Components with unavailability for testing:
11.  Moving the components that should be unavailable to a HOLD subinventory HLD.P.HOLD locator   (moving all on-hand)
12.  Express move through 10 (no problem)
13.  Express move through 20.  4 components that are unavilable show up as 'Quantity must be less than or equal to available to transact'
14.  Choose action 'Move Assembly' from Actions LOV, hit apply
15.   'Error : Quantity must be less than or equal to Available to transact'
16.  Hit apply again.  'No serial number associated with this job op.'

ISSUE:
System stops giving the message of missing components.  You can move the assembly to operation 30, without issuing the components. This is the erroring behavior.

14.  Choose action 'Move Assembly' from Actions LOV, hit apply
15.   '.......... failed validation.  Quantity must be less than or equal to Available to transact'
16.  Hit apply again.  'No serial number associated with this job op.'
17.  Continue moving to last operation (60)
18 Use express move and complete assembly
19  verified that the 4 components were never issued to the job
