I am able to set a production run from u201Creleasedu201D to u201Cclosedu201D without the cycle being completed. I have proven that this is possible but Iu2019m not sure why SAP allows that. So in effect, I can issue to production then close the order and now have a misstatement in my WIP account? How can I fix?
A production order when in a Released state can be cancelled as technically the production has not started.
When you have Issued components the Inventory raw materials gets reduced and the WIP account in increased..correnponding JE would be
Inventory WIP Dr
Inventory Raw Mtrl Cr
At this stage if you manually close the Production Order...there is a JE created to represent this..
WIP Material Variances Dr
Inventory WIP Cr
I am not sure why you feel that the WIP balance still stays....I believe the G/L Account mapping is incorrect in your company database
The WIP Material Variances account is generally defined in the Cost of Goods drawer....please check this and make the necessary changes in the G/L determination (WIP Inventory Variance Account)
