2043088 - Production Task IDs are not created in sequence.


You have defined in you the Bill of Operations that the first task that should be executed is a task of the type ABC, followed by another task, of the type XYZ.

However you noticed that the second task ID is lower than the first task's ID. 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Production Control Work Center
  2. Go to Task Control view
  3. Search for a production order
  4. See that the first task that must be executed has an ID that is higher than the next task


There is no special handling for generating the task IDs on basis of operation type.

Sometimes the ID’s will be given as a sequence, other times this will not occur.

This behavior however does not have any impact in the scenario itself, since the execution order needs to be executed in the correct sequence.


The system is working as designed.
