Infor LX & BPCS Manufacturing Tip: Backward Scheduling

George Moroses 0 18 Article rating: 5.0

Operations are automatically backward scheduled at shop order release time. The backward scheduling algorithm starts with the shop order due date and schedules each operation based upon the standard move and queue times in the routings and the number of days the job is expected to run at standard. The system calculates and stores the operation scheduled start date. The dates may be modified by the shop order maintenance program. The number of days that a job is expected to run an operation is dependent upon the available capacity for that work center and the total hours scheduled for that operation.

The backward scheduling algorithm also considers...

Infor LX & BPCS Tip: What is IDF and how could it make my life easier?

George Moroses 0 467 Article rating: 5.0

The Infor Development Framework (IDF) re-architects the way a user interacts with the application. IDF provides an efficient, task-oriented process to view application information that is contained within Infor LX. IDF enables users to configure their view of the application data without modifying the core application and its supportability.

The examples below describe how users can configure their display of data and maximize overall productivity:

  • Arrange application information into multiple groupings and sequences that make sense for the job.
  • Hide information that does not apply to a particular job or task.
  • Filter records to show only the information that applies to the job or task that the user is performing.
  • Customize the information for an individual user, for a group of users, or for all users.
     

Infor LX & BPCS Tip: Product interface list, SYS635D

George Moroses 0 699 Article rating: 5.0

Did you know?  Product interface list, SYS635D

This program creates a report that contains all interface program call records that were created for the Infor LX programs specified in the range on this screen. The report contains a line for each record found. The line displays the following information:

  • The name of an Infor LX program that contains a user exit to an add-on program
  • The interface point in the Infor LX program, that is, an identifier of the point in the program code where the user exit is requested
  • The execution sequence number of the record, because more than one add-on program can exist that can run from the same interface point
  • The add-on program to call at the interface point. The Add-on Product Interface file, ZXI, stores the records.

Infor LX & BPCS Materials Tip: Over-Receipts

George Moroses 0 509 Article rating: 5.0

If Infor LX is set up to prevent over-receipts, you cannot post a receipt quantity that is more than the remaining PO line quantity with the over-tolerance % added to it.

As an alternative, you can:

  • Receive the maximum, remaining line quantity plus over-tolerance percentage quantity, and reject the balance to quarantine or
  • Receive the full quantity into quarantine.


Note: Over-receipt checking applies only to receipts to stock.

Tips: LN | Baan

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 and the corresponding Baan IV/V Guides describe 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.

Did you know that you can send a broadcast message to users on the system? This is especially useful if you need users to exit their sessions, or in the event of system maintenance.
