Description

Duplicate kanban

Open a form, to create additional kanbans that are based on the current kanban rule.

  • If the replenishment strategy of the current rule is Fixed, the Create fixed quantity kanbans form is opened. In this form, you can only create kanbans for a single use.

  • If the replenishment strategy of the current rule is Scheduled, the Create scheduled kanbans form is opened.

Create event kanbans

Checks for rules for event kanbans that can supply the material that this kanban requires. If a matching kanban rule is found, and no kanbans are created yet, new event kanbans are generated. The new event kanbans are displayed on the Pegging FastTab.

Empty kanban

Set the status of the material handling unit that references the kanban to Empty. You set the status of the handling unit to empty when the output that the kanban supplies is consumed. When the handling unit is empty, circulating cards are unassigned and reused.

Reverse empty handling unit

Open the Kanban %1 – reverse status of handling unit to Received form, where you can change the status of the handling unit that is assigned to the kanban. You can reverse the status of the handling unit from Emptied to Received. This action is available only when the handling unit of the selected kanban is empty. For more information, see Reverse empty handling unit (form).

NoteNote

This control is available only if Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 or AX 2012 R3 is installed.

Cancel kanban

Reset the status of the kanban to Created. You can reset the status of the kanban to Created only if the current status is In process or Received, and if the kanban has not yet been financially updated. When you cancel a kanban, all inventory transactions that it references are reversed. If inventory transactions cannot be reversed because of insufficient inventory, an Infolog is displayed.

BOM version
