Baan/LN Tip of the Week: Vendor Evaluation

Want to ensure that you have the materials you need when you need them?

Want to gain insight into your ability to fulfill current and future orders timely? 

Consider implementing a method of evaluating your suppliers. A good understanding of your suppliers’ capabilities and past performance allows you to better plan and deliver orders on time to your customers. 

Some ERP systems have built in features to track supplier performance data. Reports can also be written to gather the information you need.  By whatever means you can achieve it, getting those results could be eye opening and very meaningful to your business.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Transactions

If you opt to summarize transactions, do so after a period of testing so that you can be certain that all models and aliases are working to your satisfaction. When you summarize, consider ‘Summary with Detail’ because this retains the detail transactions in GLH.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Handwritten Inventory Tickets

Are you still using handwritten tickets for your inventory?  This method of inventory tracking is slow, and prone to human error.

 

Putting a simple barcode system in place speeds up the process of tracking inventory movements, reduces the likelihood of mistakes, and creates a recorded history of the who/what/where that can provide valuable insight to those who make critical business decisions for your business.

 

Not sure where to start? Contact us and we’d be happy to help you take the first step.

Baan/LN Tip of the Week: Ledger Default Account

If you do not wish to define a detailed mapping to various ledger accounts for specific integration transactions, you can map the corresponding integration document type to a default account. All the transactions of the integration document type for which an account cannot be determined based on the mapping scheme details, are posted to the default account.

 

The mapping of an integration document type to a default account is direct, without the need for element groups and mapping elements. No distinction is made on any of the transaction details.

 

Default accounts can be used in two ways:

  • Instead of a detailed mapping to various ledger accounts. All the transactions are posted to the same account. For example, all warehouse receipts are posted to the Inventory ledger account, without any distinction.
  • In addition to a detailed mapping. If a transaction cannot be mapped based on the detailed mapping scheme, it is posted to the default account.
