Updated: February 4, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Click Inventory management > Periodic > Bills of materials > Report as finished.

Use this form to report a bill of materials (BOM) as finished. Some of the fields in the form are filled in with associated data from the Items table. To initiate the transaction, specify the date, the item number, the configuration, if there is one, the BOM number, and the quantity. Then click OK. When the transaction is completed, a message is displayed, and a BOM journal is generated that has item issues and receipts. You can continue to work with the journal before you post it.

If you report a BOM as finished, but no production order exists, the system generates item issues on the BOM lines that contain the BOM item. The system also creates an item receipt for the BOM item.

NoteNote

You view BOM journal lines in the Inventory journal form. Click Inventory management > Journals > Item transactions > Bills of materials.
