Suppose I had a production order for a product that had a variant dimension for “Color”. I release the production order to produce this product with a color of say “Yellow”. While I’m half way through the production process I have a QC step to check the color match. The QC department says I need to change the color to “Orange” to better match the base materials. Since the color “Orange” is a different variant it will become a different product. Do I end the original production order short and move the “Yellow” product to inventory with a status of say “Rework”. Then open a new production order for the “Orange” variant and strip the bom/route out of the production order and recreate a new bom/route that calls for the"Yellow" variant as a component?
Any help on this matter would be useful. Especially how to manage costs (standard cost).
