Reverting a manufacturing order is great for when adjustments are needed for completed orders or to disassemble a product. This process is essential for maintaining accurate inventory records and production flexibility.

If you accidentally marked a manufacturing order (MO) as Done or if you're performing a disassembly for a product you produced, you can revert a MO status back to Not started or Work in progress. A MO also needs to be reverted if you want to edit certain details, since some details can't be edited on a Done MO.

Note: Manufacturing orders can't be reverted if they're in a closed inventory period.

Reverting a MO reverts the inventory levels for items included in the MO. More precisely:

  • The product on the MO, the In stock quantity is decreased (based on the actual quantity produced) and the Expected quantity is increased (based on the planned quantity on the MO),

  • Materials and subassemblies used in producing the product (based on the Product Recipe / BOM) both In stock and Committed quantities are increased.

How to revert a manufacturing order

You can revert a Done MO on the MO card or in the Schedule tab of the Make screen. Katana currently does not support partial completion or partial reverting of MO, you can only complete or revert all items simultaneously.

  1. Navigate to the Schedule tab and click on the Done table at the top left.

  2. Find the relevant MO and change the Production status back to Not started or Work in progress directly in the Schedule or from the upper right-hand corner of the MO card.

  3. Your inventory levels are automatically updated.
