This post outlines the steps required in Microsoft Dynamics AX to reset the status of a production order in order to delete the order. Once a production order has been picked you will need to reverse the picking list before resetting the status and deleting the order.
First start by navigating to Production Control > Common > Production orders > All production orders.
Then select the order you wish to delete and open it. One View tab click the Picking list journal
Once the journal is open, click Picking list on the top and then create lines. From there select Full reversal and click OK
A production journal will pop up with a negative line for the reversal. Review, Validate and Post the journal.
Now that the picking list has been reversed you can reset the status of your production order back to Created. On the Production order tab select Reset status
The desired reset status will automatically default to the status that is right before the current status. The user will not be able to jump to the status that you desire to be in. You must reset the status to each stage until the desired status of Created can be selected.
Click the OK button on the Reset status page and the production order status will update. On the action pane select Reset status again and click OK. Repeat this until the Created status is reached.
Once the production order has a status of Created, the order can now be deleted. Click the Delete button on the Production order tab of the current order.
