John hit it out of the park.  He found the problem and corrected it, deleted records that contained the invalid division, and the ADC engines are once again running in Ross. Thank you all so much for the super-fast reply and jumping in to get us up and running.

Ross ERP Upgrade @ R&D Systems

Is there a way to make job correction transactions without corrupting the variance information?

No, in standard Ross there is not.  And we should not let the tail (those few minor instances) wag the dog. The important thing to do is take steps to insure that all job reporting is correct before the job is closed. The client may want to write some additional reports and create a better verification process to help here if this is a recurring problem. This is a problem with their business process and not the software. If it does reoccur, use the manual procedure below.

Using standard Ross, the only way to make corrections after close.  This should rarely happen, but when it does, the client can do this.

TO CORRECT INVENTORY.  Define and Use user-defined inventory increase and decrease movements specifically for job correction. That way you can look for these specific codes on your reports, for example:

  • MCRMIN - Mfg. Correction Raw Material Increase.  Either we over-issued or forgot to return some material from  the job.
  • MCRMDC - Mfg. Correction Raw Material Decrease.  We forgot to report all of the material physically issued.
  • MCFGIN - Mfg. Correction Finished Goods Increase.   Didn't report enough outputs.
  • MCFGDC - Mfg. Correction Finished Goods Decrease.    We reported too many outputs.

TO CORRECT OTHER GL ISSUES.  Perform Indirect Postings Inquiry to determine all postings related to the job. Determine what corrections are desired and then make those corrections via direct journal voucher entry into the GL.
