BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Receiving to Inspection

If the item being received needs to be inspected prior to being available for use, there are two schools of thought.The first is to receive the item to a QC hold location. The downside is the item will show up in on hand inventory.

A better method would be to do a PO receipt to inspection. Both Inv500 and Pur550 support this method. Now you have received the item without showing it in inventory. Only the PO quantity in inspection is updated. This method also allows you to create an Inspection Dispatch Report. After the QC process for the item is complete, then the transaction Receipt from Inspection to Stock is processed. That transaction then updates the PO quantity received field and the Item on hand field in inventory.

Baan/LN Tip of the Week: Transaction Accounts – Commissions

In Baan IV, if a link with Financials exists for commissions and rebates, invoices are created directly in the Commission Control System (CMS) module and posted to Financials. As a result, users must specify the ledger accounts that are used for posting commissions and rebates in the Maintain Commission/Rebate Transaction Accounts (tdcms2101m000) session.

In LN, the Maintain Commission/Rebate Transaction Accounts (tdcms2101m000) session is removed from the Commission Control System (CMS) module, because invoices are no longer created directly in the Commission Control System module.

Baan/LN Tip of the Week: Project Templates

Project templates are useful because you can specify all of the information that you would normally want to include when creating a new project such as project structure, budget and so on.

In Baan IV/V, project templates do not exist, but you can set up a project template by creating a regular project, and setting the status to simulated or free. This is done so that the project does not create plans. Under this scenario, you can easily copy one project to another.

In LN, when you create a new project, a template can be used as the starting point. This is similar to copying a normal project, but unlike normal projects, no costs or revenues can be posted on a template.

BPCS/LX Tip of the Week: Operational Inefficiencies

Two big sources of inefficiencies in manufacturing are paper and spreadsheets. I know that you love ‘em, but they are the cause of more problems than you probably realize. Think of how long it takes you to get paper based data into the hands of those who can do something valuable with the data. Are you capturing all of the information correctly? Timely? What about those spreadsheets? Can everyone access that information across your organization? Is that data married with all of the related data regarding your operations to give your executive and middle management the information they need when they need it?

Make your shop floor paperless and put in place systems that talk to one another and automatically pull and push data to and from your ERP so that you can look in one place for all the information you need to run your business effectively.

If you’re not doing this today, you might as well be burning money.
