How to Use a not-usable Component in Work Order

By | January 23, 2017

In Sage ERP X3, there is a feature where you can check whether the component used in a product is non-usable or not while creating a work order. This can be achieved by following below steps:-

Navigate to Setup → General Parameters → Parameters values

Under Module → GPA Manufacturing and Group → Work Order management, there is a parameter “CMPUSBCTR” which has two values –

No = If a component in the BOM is not usable, the Work Order will be created without this component.

Yes = If a component in the BOM is not usable, it will be impossible to create the Work Order.

Use not-usable component

In the above screenshot , the system displays warning message for Not usable component but allows to create the work order without this component.

In the above screenshot, the system displays warning message for Not usable component and also prevents the creation of work order.

Hope this helps.
