Over the last year we have been experiencing the phenonmenon of what we have so kindly nicknamed “Phantom Consumption.” We are using Navision 2.6 Manufacturing. Set UP: Finished Good Items using a Manual Flush system Raw Materials and Subassemblies in production boms: ALSO Manual Requisition Method Code: M-T-S Requisition System: Prod. Order NO ROUTING LINK CODES are being used, or are in the system. What is happening is that when we consume one or two components in a production order components, and leave the rest for future consumption the system is reducing the remaining quantity of the non consumed items by the quantity of the consumed items, making it appear as though we have consumed all prod order components. However, this reduction does not happen immediately. It appears to take place over a couple of days from the time of original consumption. In addition, even though the consumption appears to have happened, there are no production order ledger entries, or items journal entries that would support that the components had been consumed. This is a entirely random phenomenon and we are not sure where to find the solution. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, what did you do to fix it?
Hi Darin, Is there any customisation on the Prod. Order component table. So far we have not come accross a situation where the system by itself post entries. How nice a world it would be…?

If there are no Item Ledger Entries, then there is no consumption. WHat are you useing as the basis of saying that the items have been consumed. A negative Item Ledger Entry is THE ONLY way to consume in Navision.
