BPCS & LX Tip of the Week: Simplify & Save Money – Evaluate Your Production Lines

When is the last time you took a hard look at your production lines?

  • How are you moving product through the facility?
  • Do you have work instructions / drawings available where needed?
  • Do you have frequently used inventory available at the line?
  • Where are the bottlenecks?
  • Are your processes simplified?

Taking a hard look at your processes and procedures may reveal some interesting results. Don’t assume that everyone is doing things the same way. Some may be superstars, and others may need some mentoring. Some processes may be outdated and costing you time and money, while others are extremely efficient. One area of the business may benefit from how others operate. Take the time to review and analyze your findings. Your company may benefit greatly as a result.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Make Your ERP Work FOR You - Streamline Your Processes

Such lofty goals you had when you implemented your ERP system. It was going to be like pressing the “Easy Button”…  then it wasn’t.

What happened? In some cases, decisions were made to implement the system “just like we used to run our old system”. Great idea? Not so much. Your business changes, and your business software needs to change as well.

Are you using the ERP system, but everything seems cumbersome and takes more time than its worth? 

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Have you looked at streamlining your processes?
  • Can you automate a step or two and eliminate some manual keying?
  • Can you add barcoding to avoid keying in some information altogether?
  • How about automating the printing of some reports?

Now is the time to sit down and really review the steps required to complete the task and think out of the box a bit. Soon you can develop your own streamlined process to get the job done quickly and efficiently.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Notes Maintenance Enhancements

The Notes Maintenance feature is made up note programs that are accessible from a central location. The Note Text Maintenance (SYS555), Note Type Maintenance (SYS553) and Multi Language Notes Maintenance (SYS556) programs are all available as menu options.

Instead of having to go into separate programs to maintain note settings, the user can set up print options, specify user documents and customize user security levels for specific notes.

The Notes Maintenance feature provides a way to create, revise, delete, and copy note text that are categorized by note types. The print options in Notes Maintenance permit a user to define documents for which the note is intended. This includes base LX documents and custom documents. 

Finally, the notes program provides a way to define notes by assigning document types. For example, a document type can be created named “Invoice.” A note can then be defined to print on all invoice programs without requiring individual entry.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: IDF - Enterprise Items Application

The Enterprise Item application in the Infor Development Framework for Infor LX supports display of all information relevant to an item. This includes numerous aspects of Inventory, including facility, warehouse, location, lot, and container data.

With the Enterprise Items application, you can customize the data displayed to include more or less data than is currently displayed using the standard Infor LX programs. You can access this information through a single point of entry, so there is no need to switch from one program to another to see all the data you require. This ability to customize will help streamline your decisions by allowing you to display information that is specific to your needs.

The various Enterprise Item application cards provide listings, maintenance type information, and current information that you could previously only access by running multiple standard Infor LX programs, such as Material Status Inquiry (INV300), Bill of Material Inquiry (BOM300), and Routing Inquiry (SFC100).
