Pushing Forward In the Face of Adversity. Soundview recently suffered a major loss when fire struck on January 30, 2019.

Soundview Paper lost their main building when disaster struck. This building housed offices, their computer center and part of their manufacturing facility. The loss including hardware, networks, system data backups, etc. Crossroads RMC was contacted immediately to assist in the recovery of their BPCS V6 system. With limited backups and a full team effort, Crossroads RMC assisted in the acquisition of new hardware and are currently in the midst of helping to bring their system back to life. Soundview has secured support from various partners to make all this happen, and we are privileged to be part of the team. A lot of work has been done so far, but we have a long road ahead. Users will soon regain access by the end of this week,  and as required, Crossroads RMC will provide the necessary consulting support from our LX team to get Soundview back up and running. We are communicating with them daily, as we work thru this process.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Facility Period Close

The Facility Period Close process, as introduced in Infor LX 8.3.4, was designed to function interactively. 

The expectation was that clients with a continuous or 24-hour worldwide operation in multiple facilities would submit the Period End Close jobs for each facility as daily operations ceased or shifts ended for each facility. This process was designed to function interactively so that validations of users performing transactions that conflicted with period end processing, and resulting messages, were immediately sent to the period end user. 

This enhancement provides a batch mode for the Facility Period Close (INV930) process and allows the Update IIM Inventory from IWI (INV931) process to be submitted from the INV930B program. The enhancement also provides a batch mode for the INV931 process. For example, a user has a 24-hour operation in facilities around the world, but a centralized IT operation. With this enhancement the user can submit the individual facilities to be closed to a batch process that can be managed by a scheduler, automatically releasing each facility to be closed at a predetermined time.

Baan/LN Tip of the Week: Warehouse Material Movement / Problems With the Inventory Structure Table (whinr150)

This has come up as an issue during various stages of warehouse material movements – transfers, outbounds, shipments. We have seen it right up to 10.4. The inventory structure table (whinr150) becomes a problem. The error points to that table, but users are lost as to how to fix it.

In the session Units by Unit Set many companies let the field Storage default to Yes. If the UOM is not intended to be used in inventory then that setting should be No. 

If an item is purchased in UOM different from the inventory unit and the setting is Yes then LN adds a record in that UOM to the inventory structure table. It is that record that causes problem later.

The session has an option to change the value of the storage field. Specific > Convert Use for Storage. This option works both ways and will correct all inventory in the UOM range. 

Should a user receive an error that references inventory structure table then the solution is to check that session to see if an odd UOM exists in it. If so use the Convert Use for Storage to correct the problem.
