BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Grow Employees to Grow Your Business

Earlier this year I wrote a blog about motivating employees to do more… to be more. Doing this helps your business grow. Here is a link to my blog.

And I would like to share a link to a recent article from Industry Week giving a different take on the same idea.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Receiving to Inspection

If the item being received needs to be inspected prior to being available for use, there are two schools of thought.The first is to receive the item to a QC hold location. The downside is the item will show up in on hand inventory.

A better method would be to do a PO receipt to inspection. Both Inv500 and Pur550 support this method. Now you have received the item without showing it in inventory. Only the PO quantity in inspection is updated. This method also allows you to create an Inspection Dispatch Report. After the QC process for the item is complete, then the transaction Receipt from Inspection to Stock is processed. That transaction then updates the PO quantity received field and the Item on hand field in inventory.

Baan/LN Tip of the Week: Transaction Accounts – Commissions

In Baan IV, if a link with Financials exists for commissions and rebates, invoices are created directly in the Commission Control System (CMS) module and posted to Financials. As a result, users must specify the ledger accounts that are used for posting commissions and rebates in the Maintain Commission/Rebate Transaction Accounts (tdcms2101m000) session.

In LN, the Maintain Commission/Rebate Transaction Accounts (tdcms2101m000) session is removed from the Commission Control System (CMS) module, because invoices are no longer created directly in the Commission Control System module.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Inventory Control

  • In Infor LX you need to determine how inventory will be moved in and out of warehouse storage locations, and which of the following transactions to use for inventory control:
  • A transfer transaction can be used to move inventory from one warehouse location to another warehouse location.
  • A production receipt transaction is used to add inventory to a warehouse location.
  • A material issue or backflush is used to reduce inventory from a warehouse location.

Baan/LN Tip of the Week: Project Templates

Project templates are useful because you can specify all of the information that you would normally want to include when creating a new project such as project structure, budget and so on.

In Baan IV/V, project templates do not exist, but you can set up a project template by creating a regular project, and setting the status to simulated or free. This is done so that the project does not create plans. Under this scenario, you can easily copy one project to another.

In LN, when you create a new project, a template can be used as the starting point. This is similar to copying a normal project, but unlike normal projects, no costs or revenues can be posted on a template.
