Use this form to finish production orders and assign them the status. As soon as they are ended, they cannot be updated or reverted to an earlier status. Production orders should be reported as finished before being ended.

When production orders are ended, they are cost-accounted. A receipt transaction with the status is generated for the production item. This transaction covers receipts for items that were created and have the status and items that were reported-as-finished and have the status , and receipt transactions that were generated earlier are deleted. Previously posted items and work in process (WIP) are automatically reversed in the ledger, and all journals are posted and closed.

Actual costs are calculated when a production is ended. These costs are based on realized material and time consumption. You can compare actual costs to estimated material and time consumption costs that were calculated when the production order was estimated. For more information, see Calculation (ProdCalcTrans) Form.

Final price calculation covers the consumption of items, services, item gains, and operations.

Consumption of items

The cost amount for item consumption is calculated as follows:

Raw materials consumption * Cost price =Realized cost amount

If the consumed items are not open-transaction marked, the average cost is used. The item's cost price is taken from inventory. However, if the item is open-transaction marked for a receipt transaction with the status, the item's cost price is taken from that receipt transaction.

For costing of the item consumption, the program issues a transaction with the status. The original issue transaction with the or status is deleted.

Consumption of services

The cost amount for the consumption of services is calculated as follows:

Service consumption * cost price for service =Realized cost amount

You can record consumption of the service item before costing occurs by using a picking list journal. You can also do this manually. For more information about picking list journals, see Production journal (form).

Item gains

The cost amount for item gains is calculated as follows:

Number of gained items * Item's cost price =Realized cost amount

The item's cost price is taken from the item when you calculate costing. During the costing of item gains, the original inventory transaction is updated to the status from or .

Consumption of operations

Operation consumption includes run times, setup time, and processed quantity. The cost amount for the consumption of run time, setup time, and processed quantity is calculated as follows:

(Reported time consumption * Reported hourly cost price) + (Reported processed quantity * Reported quantity cost price) = Realized cost amount

When you select automatic picking of work centers, the cost price is retrieved automatically from the run time category, setup category, and quantity category that are stated on the route.

If the number of finished items has been reported for the operations by using the report-as-finished journal, these items are the ones used in costing. For more information about report-as-finished journals, see Production journal (form).

Tasks that use this form

Navigating the form

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.




Create and view a list of production orders that you want to update to the status.

Specify details for how you want the program to end the selected production orders.

Set up a batch job for ending production orders.




Open the form, where you can filter and sort the production order records that you want to end.

Open the form, where you can specify default values that you want to use when you end production orders.




Enter the production order number that you want to end. You can enter any existing production order number. You can also use the button to filter for a production order number.

If you access the form from the form, the field is automatically filled in with the selected production order.

Specify the date that you want the production to be posted. The system date is the default.

Select whether to report the production order as finished before you end it. For more information, see Run end production.

Specify how you want to post item and work center consumption for scrap quantity. If the quantity that is started is larger than the quantity that is reported as finished, there is scrap. Scrap is calculated as follows:

(Quantity started - Quantity reported as finished) / (Quantity started) * 100.

The options are as follows:

  • - The calculated scrap in the ledger account is posted to the scrap account that is specified in the field.

  • - The calculated scrap is allocated as an added cost to the quantity of finished items that are reported as finished.

Specify the ledger account to which you want to post scrap. This field is only used if you select in .
