"Co-product variations" check box

Dear all:

Hope you are doing very well.

what is the purpose of using the check box named “Co-product variations” in the production order setup tab?

Please advice.


“Sometimes, a batch order may end up producing unplanned co-products and byproducts due to process deviations. Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 can facilitate the entry of these unplanned receipts in the batch order when the co-product variation check box is activated in the formula version. Also, when you create the receipt for the unplanned co-products, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 mandates for the entry of the cost allocation manually.”
