  • Integration of Kanban Transactions with Advanced Repetitive
    Note: This enhancement was introduced in QAD 2012 SE. However, it was omitted from the Release Notes for that version.
    Kanban processing has been enhanced to support Advanced Repetitive reporting logic, allowing reporting against cumulative orders. Previously, these transactions were recorded using Unplanned Receipts logic. To continue using this method, leave the new Use Cumulative Order field set to No for the kanban loop in Kanban Master Maintenance (17.22.4).
    When you use this feature for kanban process loops, Kanban Fill/Receive and Kanban Ship create the same kinds of inventory and GL transactions that Advanced Repetitive does. Additional fields in the transaction user interface allow you to enter actual runtime and determine whether the system backflushes the setup time specified for the routing.
    The system uses the same logic as Advanced Repetitive to find an open cumulative order based on site, item, production line, routing, and BOM. If no order is found, the system creates one.
    A difference is in the way that kanban identifies locations when backflushing components. Kanban bases the backflush location on the Location field in Kanban Process Maintenance (17.22.3). For the receipt location, it uses the Location field in the Kanban Transaction Control frame of Kanban Master Maintenance. (By default, Advanced Repetitive uses the work center or item master location during backflush.)
    In addition to the new Use Cumulative Order field, an existing field in Kanban Master Maintenance has been relabeled as Backflush Components. It was previously labeled as Component/Op Transactions.
    Basic prerequisites for using this functionality include:
    Set up standard Advanced Repetitive data—items, routings, BOMs, production lines, and so on.
    Associate the kanban item with the repetitive production line in Production Line Maintenance (
    Optionally, associate the repetitive production line with kanban in Kanban Process Maintenance.
    Enable repetitive reporting for the kanban loop by setting Use Cumulative Order to Yes in Kanban Master Maintenance.
    Note: Impact Inventory must also be Yes.
