Hi everyone

Our system appears to have stopped posting machine overhead to the accounts when a shop order is completed.  I’m looking at the work centre that is used and the value is only on cost set 2 and not in cost set 1 (inventory value) - will this be the issue? 

Thanks, Derek

Yes, that would be an issue if you want postings to occur.  The cost 1 will create postings. The cost set 2 could drive a standard cost, but the postings are from the cost set 1.  


Yes, you would need a value for the overhead 1 in cost set 1- if you want  the postings. Else, you  would probably get MFG variances. 


Best regards,

Hi @Thomas Peterson

That’s what I thought, but also wanted another opinion.  Thank you.
