In my manufacturing operations, there is a frequent phenomenon where actual production exceeds the work order qty by 2-4%. There are a couple of primary reasons for this (not relevant to ERP, but sharing the info nonetheless) -> expected rejection due to quality issues in subsequent stages or standard packing size for some raw material (for e.g. total WO qty = 100 but one of the child parts comes in pack size of 15; so produced qty will be 105).
In such cases, the material issue against that work order should be higher than original qty (by 2-3%), and produced qty should also be more than original WO qty. I thought that problem would be solved by the manufacturing setting field “Overproduction Percentage for Work Order”. I have set this field to 125, but there doesn’t seem to be any change in the way of working.
I am attaching screenshots of the setting page and work order “start” page error. This is hurting operations. Kindly help.
