Using IDF and the Item Revison A Dimension Fields to calculate Warehouse Square footage availability

We would like to use the ITMRVA fields listed below to calculate square
footage available in Warehouse '1'.

* = in use today.

  SHAP Shape Code
* HITE Height
* LONG Length
  IDIA Inside diameter
  ODIA Outside diameter
  DUOM unit of measure for dimensions
* WIDE Width
  IDMA Make ID
  IDMO Model ID
  OEMP OEM Product Number

Our question is how do other companies determine in real-time what footage
is available in any given warehouse today within IDF?  Our direction is to
develop via Enterprise Integrator, user exit data files and ITMRVA
dimension fields to display to the COM/IM and EPDM users available
warehouse space for new product or customer demand for availablility of
warehouse space.  We don't want an add on software package our whole
company direction is to develop in house via IDF, System Link, user exits
to Infor standards.  We realize this may be available in other Infor
products today and/or third party add ons but the basics are in plan
vanilla XA and that is where we want to stay.

Any dicussion on how you are able to determine warehouse square footage is
welcomed.

Using revision levels instead of new component numbers

We are looking for a solution to avoid the ever growing practice of 
assigning new component numbers every time the component changes. (one 
school of thought here on interpreting the form, fit, function rule)

Has anyone had success in using the revision level feature in XA?  We have 
done some testing on this and it seems to work well- we created revisions 
with different costs and effective dates and tried them out in bills of 
material. Some are hesitant about the fact that we cannot track inventory 
by revision level.

We are at release 7.06

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Graph in IDF of KPI

We have a request from the President to place an icon on an IDF screen
(CSM) with one click display a graph showing Sales Period to date, Sales
Year to date, Period Cost to date, Cost Year to date fields totaled by item
accounting class.  The data we can get from Item Balance file.  The graph
in IDF we have never done before.
Anyone presenting any graphs in IDF Release 9 give us some pointers.

Thank you,

Automated Scanning......

I wanted to ask and see if anyone in the Mapics community has experience 
setting automated scan tunnel's? If so do you have vendor contacts that I can 
talk to?

We are needing to get an automated scan process in place for all of our 
finished products that exit our Assembly/Pack area. We are currently manually 
scanning them with RF Guns, but I need to eliminate the manual process.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,

Thanks!

To all my friends on the ML,

Thanks for a great many years of help & insight with MAPICS & AS400.

However I am now working strictly on SyteLine (MS SQL & WinTel).

Of course I had to say thanks before dropping off the list. It's been very
helpful to be the beneficiary of so much great info unselfishly shared.

And one last thing, our recent upgrade from R6 to R9, plust V5R1 to V7R1 on
a PS7 box went very well indeed. I'm gonna miss old faithful!

I'm on Linked-In for anyone interested.

Regards...james

Re: MAPICS-L Digest, Vol 10, Issue 125

I suppose we need to put this to bed. There is typically a clause in
MAPICS and Infor license agreements that require additional license
payments when a licensee grants access to any person who is not an
employee of that company, of Infor or a current affiliate of Infor.  This
clause has been in a majority of contracts for many years. It is not a
financial penalty as such, but it is a license fee over and above the fee
already paid.

Quite frankly, I don't know the origin of this clause, nor do I know the
business justification. I have yet to find anyone who remembers when or
why it was put in.  However, if it is in your agreement, it is a term of
your license.  You could have an issue if you grant third party access and
Infor performs an audit.

I don't believe this has happened very often, and we don't consider it a
major licensing violation. However, you should be aware of the provisions
of your license pertaining to third party access. If you have this clause,
you are bound by its terms.

IM transactions via SystemLink

Anyone using SystemLink to input IM transaction, EDI transaction or any off line load transaction.  Just
wondering if anyone is moving in that direction with release 9 or 9.1.

CalcBOL and Formtastic

We are installing the CalcBOL product from AR Traffic.  I see that Mark Magic forms has a template for the vics
standard BOL.
We own the Intellichief forms package Formtastic.  I can't believe, since both are integrated with XA and
under the umbrella of Infor, that there isn't a template with Formtastic, but there isn't one.
Has anyone already created this in Formtastic?  I am ok with doing the form myself, it will just save a ton of time.

Thanks for your input,

Julie Holmes

Printed Report Prints JCL Command

We just installed a 4247-003, attached to network.  On all our reports sent
to that printer, the first page has the JCL Stop and Start Command printed
at the top of the page.  Does anyone know how to get rid of this?

Try looking at Brady printers. We find them reliable.

Paperless move ticket printers.

Hello all.

We run Paperless MDCC as our shop floor reporting and tracking system.

My question is: What type of printers are people using to print the move
tickets?

Since the move ticket is only 4 by 4, would a Zebra type printer work?

Thanks
