MMLISX

We have been using the MMLISX functions for quite a while - since Release 7.8 - are now on 9.1			

Works excellent - for the Infor functions - but we found a few places in our own (and 3. Party code) that build
their own library list from MMLIST instead of using the Infor programs to do that - so these needed to be
changed to build the proper environment library list

We are also using the MMLISU functionality to add user/developer specific libraries to our test and
development environments - also a VERY handy possibility

Yours sincerely / Med venlig hilsen

Including Handling Allowances in MRP which is a fixed quantity, not a percentage

Hi,

Our industry seems to have a particular requirement.

In the cable manufacturing process, each steps consumes a fixed quantity of the manufactured product in
the start-up of the manufacturing cycle.  This excess demand must be included in the planned quantity as it
cascades down the indented Bill of Material.  The issue is that this fixed quantity per manufactured item,
must somehow be added at each level in the BOM to ensure sufficient component quantity is manufactured to
cover all the Allowance requirements in the levels above.  Please note that this is a fixed quantity and can
not be a percentage.

In an example provided quickly in a recent discussion, it was determined that there can be up to an 8% scrap
quantity produced by these allowances over the complete production processes.  This is currently being
handled manually by the planners.

I have anticipated including the Allowance on the Item Warehouse, and adding it to planned quantities
during the MRP cycle.  I'm not sure exactly how and where to add the allowances.  There are 3 User Exits in the
planning run which I suspect could be used.  Where this is added depends on when the projected planned
quantities are initially created.

If you have any ideas, or would like more information, please contact me through this facility.

Rgrds,

Alan

IFM

We would like to  generate the trial balance in another currency.
XA Powerlink is used within the  environment.  
Most of the accounting  transactions  are in either USD and CAD, we revalue between each by the exchange
rate entered into IFM.
Does any one have a solution they use or suggestions on how to  accomplish  creating a trial balance  in
both currencies?

Re: MAPICS-L Digest, Vol 14, Issue 19: For Alan McKenzie From: Mike Ellis / ISI

Alan,
That is correct.  Without a Client method to maintain/copy an Item Line
record, there will be no method in SystemLink.
One could probably be developed, but do thorough research first.   There is
some work that happens behind the green screen when creating some of the
REP records.

Copy Item/Line Definitions

Hi,

We are implementing REP in a wire factory and have found the need to be able to Copy existing Item/Line
definitions as we have multiple Production Lines on which a product can be manufactured.  I have found that
there is an Item/Line business object in EI, but it doesn't provide any maintenance functionality; would
this mean that System-Link couldn't be used to develop a function to provide the copy requirements?

Any help or suggestions are gratefully accepted.

Rgrds,

releasing MAPICS License

I currently have no users logged onto our system yet Work with License Users shows 4 licenses assigned to two
of our users. How do I release these licenses so others can access the system?

We only use XA for inquiry of historical data so I am sure the users are not properly signing off the system. I
do not see any active jobs besides my own. 

Thanks for your assistance

iSeries Passwords

We are a few issues with users that only use PowerLink and not Green Screen.  When their password expires
there isn't a native way to change the iSeries password.  I can create an integrator object and accomplish
the task.  But before I do that I am wondering how other have handled this condition.  Are there inexpensive
utilities that sync the iSeries password to a Windows password?  We have played around with Kerberos and it
works great for green screen and other Kerberos enable iSeries apps, but it does not appear that PowerLink
is a Kerberos enabled application.  As always thanks in advance for your valuable input.

Thanks
Doug

Sales tax calculation solutions

We are a COM / IFM shop, currently at R7.8.

We currently use an Avalera solution for calculating sales taxes.  I'm investigating other options and
would appreciate any input.  What solution do you use?  Is it well-integrated with XA (i.e., reasonably
"plug and play")?  Does it reside local or is it cloud-based?  Is it very expensive?  How would you rate the
vendor's support?

Thanks.
