Infor LX & BPCS Tip of the Week: Inventory Transfers for Outside Operations

This enhancement allows users who currently perform outside operation processing in shop floor programs to manage the transfer of components used in the outside operations to the vendor’s designated warehouse.

This enhancement provides modified and new INV511D screens and adds new logic to allow the user to identify all shop orders that have components linked to outside operations or to identify all the components linked to an outside operation on a shop order. The shop orders can be filtered by either a date range or by a specific vendor.

Inventory Transfers for Outside Operations enhances the management of external operations by providing screens that simplify the selection of the shop orders or items to transfer to a vendor.

Transfers to the vendor warehouse are performed in the Inventory Transfers, INV511D, screens.

Infor LN / Baan Tip of the Week: Deleting Records

To improve performance and reduce database growth, deleting records is highly effective. The disadvantage of deleting records is that data is no longer available. Usually, however, not all records need to be saved. For example, line activities are stored by warehouse. Normally, you do not need to keep these records. Therefore, after closing a warehouse order, line activities can be removed. The User's Guide for ERP LN Archiving describes several sessions you can use to delete old data. Other data such as items and business partners can be reviewed once in a while, after which you can delete the data you no longer need. For every order and contract table a session is available to archive and delete old orders. In these sessions, you can specify several characteristics to select the orders to be removed, such as date or status. Run these sessions on a regular basis.

BPCS / LX Tip of the Week: Inventory Period Balance Freeze

This enhancement provides clients the ability to store the opening/ending on hand balance for each Inventory period at the Item (IIM), Warehouse/Item (IWI) and Lot/Location (ILI) levels. Infor LX clients can back date inventory transactions into the immediate previously closed period, and thus update what was saved as the opening/ending balance throughout the current open period. 

Tracking the opening/ending/period balance for each inventory period can give users insights into the levels of inventory for each item, item/warehouse and item/warehouse/lot/location combination.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Purchase Order Receive All Processing

With this enhancement the Purchase Receipts screens are optionally shown with the quantity and weight fields populated with the open value on the purchase order. The screens are now populated with the open value and if the open value is the same as the value received, the user can simply accept the line. The Receive All field on the PUR550D1-01 screen determines whether the receipt lines are populated with the open value. A system parameter controls the Receive All default value but the default value can be overridden.  

If this option is selected, the user does not have to enter the open quantity or weight. If the purchase order receipt has many lines, this option saves time and prevents errors.
