Bills of materials Journal in AX 2012 R3

Hello Friends, Hope you all are well. Its been long time since I haven't share my learning due to my other priority tasks.

Today I am going to share a very simple yet important topic of AX i.e. "Bill of material journal". This journal is used during production to add finished goods in the inventory, once it is ready and to reduce the components (as components are consumed while producing finished goods) from the inventory. In other word, BOM journal is used for inventory receipt of the BOM (Finished) item and Inventory issue of its components (Which represents BOM).

It is used when you have basic production process in place and you don't want to utilize AX Production control module to its extent.

It is also used in the Kitting process by some organization.

1. Create item with the production type "BOM".
2. Create Bill of material for the item ( In the Release item details -->Engineer Fast tab --> BOM section -->Lines --> Create BOM).
3. Approve and Activate BOM.

Steps to create and post BOM journal
1.Go to inventory management --> Journals --> Item transactions -->Bills of Materials

2. Click on New --> Select Journal name --> Click on Lines

3.Click on BOM --> Report as finished

5. Click on New

6. Add Item number, storage dimensions, Quantity.
7. Select the BOM number (in case of multiple BOM for the item)
8. Select the type of Explosion:
    a. Never: Bill of materials are not exploded if there is material shortage.
    b. Always: Bill of materials are fully exploded
    c. Shortage: Bill of materials are exploded only when required quantity of materials are not available. If Materials are partially available then explosion happens for remaining items which are not available.

9. Post now:If this is checked then as soon as Report as finished lines are transferred to BOM journal lines, the journal gets posted.

10.Click Ok to transfer Report as finished lines to BOM journal lines.

11. You can see BOM item along with the components get copied in the BOM journal

12. Also BOM item quantity gets increased and its components quantity get decrease as it is consumed during the production of BOM item.

13. As we have checked Post now checkbox in report as finished lines, journal got posted automatically after the transfer of these lines.

14. You can check the on hand quantity for BOM item and components to know the impact of the posting.

In this way, you can create and post BOM journal in AX.

Keep Daxing!! Keep Sharing!!
