Infor LX & BPCS Tip: Return Material Authorization (RMAs)
The Return Material Authorization process, RMA, controls and monitors the return of goods. Infor LX generates an RMA which mirrors the terms and conditions of the return. You can copy the RMA from a processed invoice or create it independently of an existing order. If you copy an invoice to create an RMA, Infor LX copies only regular lines, not special lines. You can manually add special lines as credits on the RMA. Enter RMAs in the same manner as a customer quote. Like a customer quote, an RMA has no immediate effect on inventory, accounts receivable, sales, or the general ledger. Infor LX then generates a Return Material Document which provides the customer with the authorization to proceed with the return. Internal procedures, return reason codes, and instructional notes on the RMA identify the disposition processing. You can perform credit processing and determine update effects by entering the RMA number and assigning the appropriate order type.
