BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Cycle Counting Part 1

Understanding: The Cycle Count Transaction

If you rely on BPCS to provide you with a cycle count list, the number of items could vary from day to day from a few items to count, to several. So the person doing the cycle counting may spend a few minutes to a few hours counting items. After the cycle count is complete, the balances are not changed until the reconciliation is complete. This process could take some time before the balances are changed.

The cycle count transaction process is similar to the physical inventory transaction process.

Baan/LN Tip of the Week: GRINYA

GRINYA is one of the more complex issues in ERP Finance. GRINYA is the tracking via ledger account of the value of items received on a purchase order that have not been matched to a supplier invoice.

Baan solutions for Baan IV and V were incomplete. To take full advantage of the current GRINYA reconciliation process, check Infor solution #107147, which contains the GRINYA user manual and a link to download the software for your version of Baan. For ERP LN, look at Document Code U8942C US.

It is called User Guide for Reconciliation and Analysis. If you are not running the latest GRINYA solutions, patching will require a good amount of time in filling the Interim tables this solution runs from. Infor has posted several procedural write ups, so check the Support Site and read up before tackling this for the first time.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Work Center & Machine Locations

For either file, you must specify a valid location code as defined in the Location Master File.

If the machine master locations are blank, then the work center locations are used. There are cases where you may want to do a combination between the two in defining the locations.

Let’s say the end item has one operation. The operation is at work center 510 and Machine A is in the work center. You have locations setup in both the Work center file and the Machine master File. You report 100 complete at the work center without specifying the machine.

In this case, the inventory will be processed based on the locations defined in the work center file. If the transaction included the machine number, then the locations in the machine file would be used.

Baan/LN Tip of the Week: Printing Pick Lists

Be careful with the Planned Delivery Date. Pick lists will not print for orders beyond the date selected. Printing the pick after the Outbound will then print the suggested location on the pick.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: The Item Master Requirements Code

In the Item Master File, the requirements code is used to specify the type of demand for the item. Planned order requirements are determined from the type of demand. If the requirements code is left blank, the planning systems treat the item as a sum code (3).

Other options for the field are:


1 = Dependent demand that is indirectly generated from the parent item requirements.

2 = Independent demand generated from customer orders and forecasts.

3 = The Sum of both independent and dependent demand.
