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 > Job card. On the toolbar, click Create new.

–or–

Click Production control > Common > Production orders > All production orders. Select a production order, and on the Action Pane, click the View tab, and then click Job card. In the Production journal lines, job card form, click Create new on the toolbar.

Use this form to work with material and operations resource consumption for a production order. This form contains detailed information about the job that is selected in the job card journal.

You can monitor details for each job, such as the following:

  • Check the good and defective quantities.

  • Specify how you want the job to start and end.

  • Specify setup requirements.

  • Define the processes that are required to complete a job.

Each of these processes consumes time and material in a different way. Different types of jobs have different consumption patterns. The types of jobs include the following: Queue before, Setup, Process, Overlap, Transport, and Queue after.

NoteNote

When you create a production order, you can select to post the transactions automatically to an open job card journal. Posting occurs when the order enters the Started status. When the job card journal is posted, all transactions are also automatically posted to the ledger.

Because time consumption is only relevant to production orders that have been scheduled to begin production, or job scheduled, you can only work with jobs from production orders that have a status of Started or Reported as finished.

When the multisite functionality is activated, the site from the production order is entered on the job card journal line. The site cannot be changed.

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

Tab

Description

Overview

Enter information about the new journal line.

General tab

View identifying information about the journal line selected on the Overview tab.

Setup tab.

Specify the Cost categories that you want to use to calculate expenses for the finished operation.

You can use hours for the cost of the time consumed, or the quantity for the cost of the number of items reported as finished.

You can also check whether the BOM lines are consumed by the picking list, and whether items should be reported as finished by the system when the journal is posted.

Report as finished

Enter the inventory dimensions that you want to see in the Automatic report as finished journal. The system creates a Report as finished journal if you selected the Picking list check box on the Setup tab in the job card journal.

Financial dimensions

Specify department, cost center, and purpose dimensions.

Button

Description

Validate

Check the journal for required information before posting.

Post

Post the journal.

Log

Open the log function to check posting errors.

Functions

Set up the Delete journal lines function. You can run this as a batch job.

Inventory

View information about inventory dimensions.

Job

Show data related to the current job and production. Make changes or view details to help you make decisions about your production.

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 dialog box.

Field

Description

Date

Enter the date when you want to record consumption. By default, the system date is given.

Production

The production for which consumed time has been registered or is being registered. Consumption can be reported for productions with a status of Started or Reported as finished.

Job identification

The identifier of the job where feedback is being registered. When you use job scheduling for a production order, sequential identifiers are automatically allocated to all jobs included in the production route. If job scheduling has not been performed for the production order, jobs are not allocated for the production.

Resource

The operations resource or operations resource group that is assigned to the job.

Worker

Select the 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.

Start time

Select a starting time for feedback. If the value in the Start time field is later than the value in the End time field, work was performed overnight.

End time

Select the end time for feedback. If the value in the End time field is earlier than the value in the Start time field, work was performed overnight.

Hours

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

Good quantity

Enter the number of good items to report as finished. 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 when the current production order is started, if you have specified, via the route group, that the setup time and process time are to be consumed automatically for the corresponding production route.

Error quantity

Enter the number of defective items produced by the current operation. The field is available only if the job type is Process or Setter.

Processing percentage

Specify the production progress as a percentage. By default, the field contains a value that is calculated as follows:

Formula = Hours now / Calculated time duration * 100

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

NoteNote

This functionality is relevant for primary operations, because secondary operations follow the capacity plan for primary operations.

End

Select the check box to indicate that the job is finished.

Job is finished

A selected check box indicates that the job is finished. The job status of the production route associated with production is updated to Finished.

Operation completed

A selected check box indicates that the operation is reported as finished. Anything that has not been delivered on the production BOM that refers to the operation is not delivered.

BOM consumption

Select this check box if you want the attached BOM lines to be automatically picking-list consumed when the journal is posted.

By default, the field is selected if you selected Automatic BOM consumption in the journal, and if there is reporting for an operation with BOM lines.

When the journal is posted, the system generates and posts a picking list journal with the calculated consumption. If the posting fails, the route consumption is still posted, but the picking list journal remains open. You can make changes manually before posting.

If you want to set up consumption for the picking list journal, before posting route consumption, click Picking list, set up the dialog box, and then click OK. This creates the picking list journal, and you can now work in it until posting.

Production report as finished

Select this check box if you want the system to report the number of good items as finished in production when the journal is posted. The system selects the check box if you selected the Automatic report as finished field.

Route card journal

The identifier of the route card journal.

Line number

The identifier for the line.

Voucher

The voucher number in the ledger.

Oper. No.

The operation number in the production route that the consumption is attached to.

Priority

Indicates whether the operation that consumption is being reported for is primary or secondary.

Operation

The operation that performed the activity. You can change the operation if an operation has been performed that differs from the one that is specified in the production route.

Task type

The job type that consumption is reported for. The following job types exist:

  • Queue before

  • Setup

  • Process

  • Overlap

  • Transport

  • Queue after

Cause

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

  • Material – Items are scrapped because of delivery error.

  • Machine – Items are scrapped because of machine breakdown or error.

  • Operator – Items are scrapped because of operator error.

Category hours

The cost category 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

The cost category used to cost the quantity category. This category is used, for example, for piece work, where the category is a price per item 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

The identifier of the picking list journal. The field is only completed if the BOM consumption field is selected. If you click Picking list to generate the picking list journal, the system completes the field. Otherwise, it is completed when the journal is posted.

Hourly rate

The hourly cost that you want to use in cost accounting for reported process time and setter time. The cost is filled in automatically based on the cost category you selected, but you can change the default cost.

Quantity price

The quantity price per item 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.
