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.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Email Distribution Lists

Email Distribution Lists are new in Infor LX Version 8.

With this feature, users can create groups to which they may add internal or external email addresses, and in turn, use the name of the group when sending out the email.

The email distribution list eliminates the need for a program change if recipients need to be added to or deleted from the group.

Baan/LN Tip of the Week: Clusters in LN

A cluster is a group of one or more warehouses in a particular geographical area. You can plan an item by cluster (geographical area).

To enable this, you can set up multiple plan items for one item. You always define one plan item without a cluster indication and multiple plan items with a cluster indication. A plan item with a cluster is called a clustered plan item, and a plan item without cluster is called the non-clustered plan item.

The plan items in the clusters can be supplied not only by distribution, but also through purchase and production. In this way, you can, for example, plan local purchasing in a cluster (geographical area). You can also plan supply from multiple sources.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: When More = Less

Do you have bottlenecks in your process due to product changeovers or breakdowns?
Maybe the answer is adding redundancy in the department where you are experiencing the problem. A duplicate machine setup can allow for double the capacity during high production periods. It can also eliminate the need to swap out tools or other materials due to different production runs. When breakdowns occur, equipment can be swapped out to keep production moving while repairs are being made.

Planning for this keeps production levels high.
