Infor LX & BPCS Tip of the Week: ION Tip – Pausing Receiving and Sending of Messages

Anthony Etzel 0 6770 Article rating: 5.0

If it is necessary to pause sending and receiving of BOD messages on your IBM i during your month end process, it is best practice for the document flows that point to the IBM i to guarantee delivery of BOD messages. Once the month end process has been completed, you will need to Resume the ‘Receiving’ and ‘Sending’ Active Connection Points so your documents will continue to process.

Pausing Sending messages

To pause sending messages to ION:

  1. Select Connect > Active Connection Points.
  2. Select the connection point that must be paused for sending messages.
  3. In the Sending Paused column, click Pause. The page is automatically refreshed and the Sending Paused checkbox is selected. A Resume button becomes available. 

Sending of messages by this connection point is stopped....

Crossroads RMC 0 14315 Article rating: No rating

From John O'Kelly's article on Manufacturing.net:

"Regardless of industry, efficiency gains and increased speed provide a competitive edge. The ever-increasing competition in the manufacturing world makes it necessary to find new, efficient ways to speed up the process while remaining accurate and productive. While flying robots and miracle technologies may promise to reshape the industry, we still have a way to go until full automation, and thus the most important asset on the manufacturing floor in 2019 will remain its people.

In 2019, the focus will undoubtably be increasing efficiencies, and this can be achieved through investing in employees, equipping them with the proper techniques and tools. An invested labor force will limit mistakes on the manufacturing floor and improve throughput at every level of the process."

Here are a few best practices to increase efficiency on the manufacturing floor in 2019:

  1. Invest in your labor force
  2. Prioritize quality assurance
  3. Improve labeling errors

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…
