Infor LN & Baan Tip of the Week: Wrap Toolbar Option

Kathy Barthelt 0 1434 Article rating: 5.0

The Wrap Toolbar option has been added. You can use this option to wrap toolbar buttons to the next line if it becomes too narrow to add on the same line. If this option is selected, every session has the option available in the Personalization menu. This gives the user the possibility to change the wrapping state of the toolbar per session. This setting is saved as a personalization. You can configure this option in the Tools Parameters (ttaad0100m000) session and for specific users in the User Data Template (ttams1110m000) session.

Note: LN UI 12.2.6 or later is required.

Infor LN & Baan Tip of the Week: Dynamic Assembly Control BOM (LN 10.7)

Kathy Barthelt 0 8792 Article rating: 5.0

In previous releases of LN, the Assembly Control Bill of Material (BOM) offered limited flexibility. For each end item configuration, users were required to create unique Engineering Modules, which are used to determine the assembly parts that are consumed in a specific Line Station during a specific operation.

If LN is integrated with Design Studio, previously called Infor CPQ, BOM structures can be maintained in Design Studio for Assembly Control. These structures can include non-configurable parts that are directly linked to configurable items. When communicating these structures to LN using the Assembly Control, Product Variant Structure (tiapl3510m000) session, the structures were rejected because non-configurable parts were not supported by the session logic.

In this release, BOM structures that include non-configurable parts can now be accepted in LN. Consequently, if LN is integrated with Design Studio, it is no longer required to use the Engineering Module. Using the Engineering Module has become optional.

Tips:  LX / BPCS / M3

I recently came across an article from CIO Magazine that talked about the various ways that your ERP system could be hurting your business. The single most important item on that list referenced ERP systems that weren’t integrated with other systems that housed mission-critical business data.

Having data in two (or more) systems that don’t talk to one another is like baking a pizza crust in one oven and the toppings in another. Once baked, you may have some good food to snack on, but it sure isn’t pizza! Pizza requires the cheese and sauce and spices to bake with the crust. One takes on the flavor of the other and when you take a bite, you get a complete representation of the flavors.   

That’s the value of an integrated ERP system. When you take a bite, you get a complete representation of the flavors…meaning, you get one version of the truth. Everything comes together to allow you to analyze critical business data in an efficient way with no disconnects.

Crossroads consultants have spent years developing integration expertise to tie countless different systems to Infor ERPs.

Here are some examples…
