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).

You’ve got an ERP system, so everything should be real time and everyone should have access to information in real time, right? RIGHT?
