Find that back flush WIP Issues which make the stock quantity on hand negative, do not assign the correct cost group.


  1. You are using WMS and WMS rules to assign cost groups
  2. You are doing certain WIP completion transactions through the WIP_move_transaction_interface:
    these transactions result in backflush transactions
  3. You have profile INV:Override Negative balance for backflush set to yes in order to ensure transactions get processed in a timely manner
  4. Add stock for item in point #1 against non-default cost group
  5. Perform WIP completions that result in item in point #1 going negative
  6. Transaction that takes stock negative assigns an incorrect cost group: when then stock goes negative the first negative transaction does not assigns the correct cost group
