LN & Baan Tip of the Week: Inventory In Transit Report – 10.7

A new In Transit Inventory report can be printed in the Print In Transit Inventory (whinr1410m300) session. The report provides an overview of company inventory that is on the move and not stored in a warehouse. This concerns only inventory that is transferred from one warehouse to another. Items that are shipped to, for example, customers or projects, or items that are issued to production lines or service departments are excluded.

The report shows item inventory quantities and values on warehouse transfer orders which are issued at the origin warehouse, but are not yet received in the destination warehouse. These open inter-warehouse transfer orders represent inventory that is loaded on trucks or other means of transport, or located at intermediate pooling points such as harbors and train stations.

The quantities and values are retrieved from the Item-Warehouse-Inventory Transactions and the Inventory Integration Transactions sessions.

Now, additional selection criteria have been added that allows users improved ways to control records they may want to purge.

The job shop bill of material can be generated through the production bill of material.

Infor LX & BPCS Tip of the Week: Pre-Assigned Lot Numbers – LX

In addition to assigning lot numbers in Shop Order Entry/Maintenance (SFC500) after the shop orders have been released, users can now pre-assign lot numbers during the Multi-level Shop Order Release process (SFC530) and the Multi-Level Backflush process (LMP600) for sub-assemblies that are lot controlled items. The user has the choice of using the parent lot ID, the next sequential generated lot ID, or not pre-assigning lot IDs. Multiple items per lot must be installed to use the parent lot number option.
