Impacts of Closing old WO's?

Dear Experts, I have a large amount of WO’s with quantities remaining that were not fully closed out of production.

They go as far back as 2012.

Are there any impacts of closing these WO’s? If yes, could you explain these impacts?


If you close them the “authorized” way, then no problems. But I assume that you wanna to a “hard closure”?

Then it may very well give you issues. Like if there is inventory “hanging” in these WO’s, then the impact could be inventory costing issues. Like if you have consumed inventory, but never finished it correctly.

But try it. Make a copy of the database and do it there first. Before you do, then make a full inventory valuation report. Then you can compare this report to the same report after you’ve done it.
