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

Click Production control > Journals > Route card. Click Lines. Use this form to record material and resource consumption. Route cards are used when you need feedback on the operation time that is associated with the operations resource. You can add additional operations and record information, such as time consumption, cost categories, the number of good items, and the number of defective items.

The site from the production order is entered on the route card journal line. The site cannot be changed.

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

Tab

Description

Overview

View the journal lines in the route card journal.

General

View identifying information about the journal line that is selected on the Overview tab, and enter the quantity of good items and defective items that are reported as finished on the operation. This helps you build a basis for calculating the Scrap factor. You can also see if the operation is reported as finished and view the percent of completed items on the operation.

Setup

Define the Cost categories that you want to use to calculate the operation expenses for the journal line that are selected on the Overview tab. You can use hours—the cost of the time consumed—or quantity which is the cost of the number of items reported as finished. You can check whether the bill of material (BOM) lines are automatically consumed by the Picking list and whether goods should be automatically reported as finished when the journal is posted.

NoteNote

If you select the Automatic report as finished check box in the setup tab in the Route card journal, when you post the journal, the application automatically generates a Report as finished journal with the same quantity.

Report as finished

Enter the inventory dimensions that you want to use on the Report as finished journal.

Financial dimensions

Specify the department, cost center, and purpose.

Button

Description

Validate

Check the journal line for required information and errors before posting.

Post

Post the journal.

Log

Open the log function to check for posting errors.

Functions

Show data in relation to the current operation, including additional details on the Job, Operation, and Production. You can make selected changes to some of this information, or you can view details that will help you make decisions about your production.

Inventory

Show dimension information for the current route line.

Operation

Show the current operation.

Picking list

Generate a Picking list journal. You can create picking list journal lines based on the information that you provide in the fields in the form.

Field

Description

Date

Date for recording consumption. The system date is the default, but it can be changed.

Production

Production for which consumed time is registered or is being registered.

Consumption can be reported for productions with the status of Started or Reported-as-finished.

Oper. No.

Operation number in the production route that the consumption is attached to.

Priority

Select whether the operation for which the consumption is being reported is primary or secondary.

For more information on prioritizing, see Priority.

Resource

Operations resource or operations resource group.

Resource type

The name of the resource that is used for the route. The resource types include the following: Machine, Vendor, Human Resources, Tool, and Location.

Task type

Job type for which the consumption is reported. The following job types exist:

  • Queue before

  • Setup

  • Process

  • Overlap

  • Transport

  • Queue after

Hours

Number of consumed hours for the job type Process or Setter. The number is calculated automatically if you entered starting times and ending times, and if the working time was defined for the current calendar.

Good quantity

Reporting-as-finished for the number of good items. You can only enter a value in the field if the job type is Process or Setter.

Items are reported as finished when the journal is posted. The journal can be posted manually, or it can be posted automatically when the production order is started. Specify automatic posting by defining that setup time and process time are to be consumed automatically in the production route.

For more information about the route group's association with the production route, see Route group.

Error quantity

Number of any defective items that are associated with the current operation.

You can only enter information in the field if the job type is Process or Setter.

Processing percentage

Production progress for Operation that is specified in a percentage. The field automatically contains a value that is calculated as follows:

Hours now / Estimated total hours * 100

You can change the value manually if the actual progress differs from the proposed value.

When the journal is posted, and the Update capacity plan field in the production parameters is selected, the Processing percentage - process and Processing percentage - setup fields in the production route are updated. The percentages in these fields are reused to reduce the time that remains to be scheduled by reposting the journal and rescheduling.

NoteNote

Use this field only for primary operations, because secondary operations follow the primary operation's capacity plan.

Operation completed

Selected if the operation is reported as finished. Any outstanding quantity of the production BOM for the selected operation is not delivered.

BOM consumption

Indicates whether the attached BOM lines are automatically picking-list consumed when the journal is posted.

The field is selected automatically if you selected the Automatic BOM consumption field in the journal, and if there is reporting for an operation with attached BOM lines. When the journal is posted, Microsoft Dynamics AX generates and posts a picking-list journal with the calculated consumption.

If the picking list journal fails to post, the route consumption is still posted, but the picking list journal is open, and you can make changes manually before you post.

You can set up consumption specifically for the picking list journal. Before posting route consumption, click Picking list, set up the dialog, and then click OK. This creates the picking list journal, and you can work in it further until posting.

Production report as finished

Indicates whether the number of goods is automatically reported as finished in production when the journal is posted. The field is selected automatically if you selected Automatic report as finished in the journal, and if there is reporting for the last operation in the route.

When you post the journal, Microsoft Dynamics AX generates and posts a reporting-as-finished journal with the same quantity. If the reporting-as-finished journal fails to post, the route consumption is still posted, but the reporting-as-finished journal is open, and you can make changes manually before you post.

Log

Open the log function to check posting errors.

Route card journal

Sequential numbering of journals.

Line number

Identification of line number.

Voucher

Sequential voucher number in the ledger.

Operation

This field indicates which operation performed the activity. You can change the operation if an operation other than the one that is defined in the production route has been performed.

Resource

Operations resource or operations resource group.

Cause

If a scrap quantity has been entered, you can state a cause for the error here. The following causes exist:

  • Material - items are scrapped caused by delivery error.

  • Machine - items are scrapped caused by machine breakdown or error.

  • Operator - items are scrapped caused by operator error.

Worker

Worker who worked on the operation. Specify the worker if, for example, you want to follow up on the scrap percentage, efficiency percentage, or other data per worker.

Category hours

Cost category that is used for costing expenses for the finished operation. Costs are calculated as follows:

  • Reported setup time * Hourly rate

  • Reported process time * Hourly rate

Category quantity

Cost category that is used to cost the quantity category.

This category is used, for example, for piece work, where the category is a price per item that is produced. When you use the quantity category, the category is calculated per item reported as finished per operation. That means that the price of the quantity category is multiplied by the number of operations reported as finished in the production route. Costs are calculated as follows:

Reported process quantity * quantity category

Picking list journal

Identification of the picking list journal.

If you select the BOM consumption field, Microsoft Dynamics AX generates the picking list journal and this field is populated. Otherwise, it is populated when the journal is posted.

Hourly rate

Hourly cost that will be used in cost-accounting for reported process time and setter time. The field is populated automatically based on the cost category that you selected, although you can change the default cost.

Quantity price

The quantity price per item that is produced that can be used for costing reported quantities. A price is proposed based on the cost category selected, but you can change that price.

Reported as finished journal

Identification of the reporting-as-finished journal. The field is only populated if the Production report as finished field is selected.

Configuration

Select an item configuration to specify an item with specific attributes.
