MAPICS-l Digest to: Pam Faggart from: Mike Ellis / ISI

Pam,

I recommend to my customers that they only switch on the flag requiring
vendor accept (VA) transactions for vendors with whom they have carefully
designed the procurement process.  The interplay in the relationship
between supplier and customer should be designed and carefully agreed.
Thus the vendor knows and agrees that he is responsible to acknowledge the
PO's (price, items, quantities, delivery dates).  With that simple
agreement, vendors who participate actively can be brought closer to your
firm.  The tighter relationship makes for a better supply chain.   The
promise to the vendor is the likely better relationship that similarly
drives more of your business to that supplier.

Obviously, the first vendors to start with are the biggest ones, the most
critical ones.  The others who are not a part of the program maybe don't
matter nearly so much.  Then the lack of a VA will trigger only necessary
alerts to the receiving team and responses from the procurement team.

Hope this helps.
Mike

Receive despite no VA

We have begun to use the "Require PO accept", but not all suppliers are consistently providing Vendor
acknowledgements. Consequently we have delays in receiving since there is a restriction that POs cannot
be received unless the VA has processed (PO no longer in status 10).  Business has asked us to override this
and allow receipt even when PO is in status 10. We are cautious to do this override since there must be valid
reasons for this restriction to have been put into place.

What have others experienced when requiting PO acceptances?  Are you proactive to process all VAs prior to
receipt, reactive when it is time to receive, or implementing some other overrides to eliminate disruptions?

Deactivate labor transactions

I have a custom program used to deactivate transactions in trdata (actually an Integrator object with a
transaction).  I am setting the following values for deactivated transactions
Acrec = 'N'
Acrecp = 'N'
Acrecs = 'N'
Tstat = 5
Tstats = 5

Everything seems to work ok except for some of the transactions the tstat value will not change.  This is
processed through SQL, so I would expect all of the values to be successfully set or none of them.  Is there a
trigger program that is changing this value back to the original?  Has someone solved this before?

Thanks,

American Viking Enterprises of Florida


It appears that American Viking  Enterprises has gone out of business as they are on  inactive status on the
Florida registry. Does anyone know if they sold their assess (software solutions) to another party? We
have their GL FSU AVEM65 package and are currently upgrading to Infor XA 9.1. We like this package and would
continue using it.

Non Conforming product

Hello Group,
   We have a process to physically move and TW product in that same warehouse from one location (conforming) to
another (non-conforming or quarantine)
As you probably know that  works but only when looking at the location detail information.
Has anyone made use of the non-netting location feature for this kind of situation ?
If so how does scheduling and purchasing know about the quantities in the non-netting location, or do they ?

IM - Transaction question

Hi board, I was hoping you could help me.

My company has issued an immediate RM as soon as production has finished.
However now we have the need (because of extra testing) to add another step
to the process for testing after the product has been produced but before
the finished product is available for sell. I would like to continue
updating the inventory as soon as we finish production but what method or
transaction code can I put the finished product into the computer without
using an RM, My thought is a work in process transaction code and then move
it to RM or something. Another idea was temp. warehouse and then do a
warehouse move to the real warehouse (i didnt like this idea).

I hope this makes sense. Thanks

Jeff Williams
