Are your numbers telling the full story? Discover the power of dashboards in our recorded webinar from 5/2/2024: "Unlocking Business Insights with Dashboards" Numbers are just the tip of the iceberg; the real insights lie beneath, in the 'how' and 'why'. Imagine presenting your manager with a dashboard that not only showcases the figures but also unveils the backstory behind them. Picture revealing that the 3rd shift was short-staffed for over a week, or that a material shortage caused order fulfillment delays, or that quality issues triggered extensive rework, impacting subsequent production runs. How do you unearth all this crucial information without consulting every individual involved?

Did you know that you can set up one-time vendors in LX? One Time Vendor (1,A): Specify Y to indicate that this vendor is a one-time vendor. Otherwise, could you specify N. The system removes a one-time vendor's information from the Vendor Master file after all transactions are reconciled. If this vendor already exists as a one-time vendor, you can specify N to change the vendor to a regular vendor.

Tips: LN | Baan

When the originating order or order line of an outbound order line is canceled or changed, this affects the outbound order line and may impact the related outbound advice, shipments, or shipment lines.

For most order origins, warehousing order-type parameters determine whether these actions are allowed:

  1. Update the outbound order line if the originating order is changed.
  2. Cancel the originating order line and the outbound order line.
  3. Delete the canceled outbound order line.

Updating Outbound Order Lines

  • Allowed:

A serialized item is a physical occurrence of a standard item that is given a unique lifetime serial number. This enables tracking of the individual item throughout its lifetime, for example, through the design, production, testing, installation, and maintenance phases. A serialized item can consist of other serialized components.

In Service, a serialized item can be a customer-specific or owner-specific installation. Installation groups are a group of installations/serialized items such as photocopiers, computers, air conditioners, forklifts, lathe machines, and even aircraft.

A serialized item is identified by both the item code and serial number. You can set up the mask used to generate the serial numbers so the serial number includes some fields of the item data, such as the item group and the manufacturer.

In a multi-company structure, the companies can share the serialized item data. All the service departments in the various companies can refer to the same serialized items.

The serialized item can originate from a sales order or a project. The details of a serialized item indicate their origin, for example, by using specific sets of serial numbers for items that originate from sales orders and from projects. Serialized items can also originate from an as-built structure or directly from the production bill of material in Manufacturing.
