Infor LN & Baan Tip of the Week: Wrap Toolbar Option

Kathy Barthelt 0 340 Article rating: 5.0

The Wrap Toolbar option has been added. You can use this option to wrap toolbar buttons to the next line if it becomes too narrow to add on the same line. If this option is selected, every session has the option available in the Personalization menu. This gives the user the possibility to change the wrapping state of the toolbar per session. This setting is saved as a personalization. You can configure this option in the Tools Parameters (ttaad0100m000) session and for specific users in the User Data Template (ttams1110m000) session.

Note: LN UI 12.2.6 or later is required.

Is your company on an older version of Infor LX, BPCS, Infor LN, Baan, Infor M3 or Movex?

What will you do when your ERP is no longer supported in 2021?

This is a confusing time for many companies with respect to their ERP system.

"Will I still be able to run my current version?"
"What happens if I want to stay on my version?"
"What options do I have?"

Crossroads RMC is here to help you sort through the confusion and get you to a place where you feel confident about your ERP future.

Let's get started with how we can help. I want Crossroads RMC to…

  • Conduct an Infor ERP Utilization Review – Should I consider moving to the latest version of LX in the cloud, or on prem? If I don’t, what are my options?
     
  • Set up an Infor ERP Demo System – I want to give my employees a chance to try out the latest version to see if it would be of benefit.
     
  • Train My Employees – I want to ensure that we’re operating based on best practices.
     
  • Integrate My ERP to External Systems – My company uses separate systems that don’t talk to one another and that is really inefficient.
     
  • Brainstorm With Me – I’m not sure what to do. I need to talk through some scenarios with someone who has been there, done that.
     
  • Support My Users – I’m short-staffed. I may upgrade, or I may stay where I’m at. Either way, I could use someone to handle our ERP issues. Please help!

Tip of the Week: 8 Ways to Improve Production Efficiency in Your Manufacturing Plant

Crossroads RMC 0 5474 Article rating: 5.0

No matter how large or small your manufacturing plant is, efficiency and productivity relative to your capital investment are the keys to maintaining your competitive edge. Wasting time and money is not something anyone wants to do, but manufacturers need to be especially mindful of both and actively work to address any issues that lead to productivity or financial loss.

Infor LN & Baan Tip of the Week: Dynamic Assembly Control BOM (LN 10.7)

Kathy Barthelt 0 5175 Article rating: 5.0

In previous releases of LN, the Assembly Control Bill of Material (BOM) offered limited flexibility. For each end item configuration, users were required to create unique Engineering Modules, which are used to determine the assembly parts that are consumed in a specific Line Station during a specific operation.

If LN is integrated with Design Studio, previously called Infor CPQ, BOM structures can be maintained in Design Studio for Assembly Control. These structures can include non-configurable parts that are directly linked to configurable items. When communicating these structures to LN using the Assembly Control, Product Variant Structure (tiapl3510m000) session, the structures were rejected because non-configurable parts were not supported by the session logic.

In this release, BOM structures that include non-configurable parts can now be accepted in LN. Consequently, if LN is integrated with Design Studio, it is no longer required to use the Engineering Module. Using the Engineering Module has become optional.

Tips:  LX / BPCS / M3

If you plan to use Infor WebTop, the WebTop version 4.7 or above is required when running LX 8.4. Also, acquire and install the latest WebTop 4.7 patches from Infor Xtreme prior to running LX WebTop. WebTop 4.7 can be applied to your existing environments before you install 8.4.0. If this is completed before installing LX 8.4 then the LX install will take care of much of the Webtop server configuration automatically, including installing the LX Webtop metadata, updating WEB_ENV, and including the Webtop Platform library in the INLIBL data area as part of the environment setup. If you choose to install WebTop after the LX 8.4 installation is completed, the “Infor LX 8.4 Webtop 4.7 Configuration Guide” will guide you through all the configuration steps to set up Webtop for your LX environment.
