Infor LN & Baan Tip: Using the “Use Up” Functionality in Infor LN

Kathy Barthelt 0 193 Article rating: 5.0

To use the ‘Use-Up’ or ‘Alternative’ functionality the correct ATP settings of the use-up item must be defined. Order Planning makes use of ATP to determine if there is still supply available. The component needs to have a CTP horizon greater than 0. Then a top down item selection should be chosen when generating order planning in order for the ATP checks to be done and for the system to plan for the correct components.

Selecting the 'top down item' box when generating order planning is essential because when order planning is generated for only the top level item the components aren't "really" planned for. But when a top down selection is run, the system goes through the BOM and plans for each component accordingly.

Need Knowledgeable ERP Staff Quickly?

Crossroads RMC 0 471 Article rating: 5.0

Consider this

Your staff is working on a critical project for your top customer, but in order to complete the project on time with high customer satisfaction, you need to extend your team. You know that the recruitment process is lengthy and it is not easy to find highly qualified people who won’t require a lengthy training process just to bring them up to speed on your ERP, (let alone your business) so this option is not suitable.

Or how about this…

Your ERP system is dragging and you know there are updates to install which are likely to improve system performance, but your IT guy is tied up working on something else and doesn’t know when he can perform the upgrade.

Either of these scenarios sound familiar?

Infor LX & BPCS Tip: Main Benefits of IDF?

Infor Development Framework

George Moroses 0 1060 Article rating: 5.0

The Infor Development Framework (IDF) re-architects the way a user interacts with the application, providing 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.
  • Filter or hide 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, a group of users, or all users.
