Re: MAPICS-L Digest, Vol 11, Issue 15

GTIN is included in scope for the Serial Track and Trace project.
However, we do not currently have an availability date for that new
application with XA.

XA Pack List

Hi Everyone,

Is anyone using a different solution for the XA packing list?  We're getting complaints from dealers about
the number of pages and spacing within the pages.  Plus the headings take up nearly half of every page.  We're
currently on release 7.8.

Thanks!
Kevin

GTIN - Global Trade Item Numbers

Anyone dealing with this?  This is similar to a global UPC product identifier and starting to gain some
traction among companies that have to ship outside the US, especially with consumer products.  INFOR
support says it is part of future plans, but no commitment date

MS SQL server back up to i5

We have some applications running on MS-SQL servers and would like to back
up those databases to the i5 storage then off-load to tape as part of the
i5 back up scheme.  Anyone doing this today?  Can you provide some
direction.

Thank you,

Jimenez, James | 15 Jan 22:23 2013

I'm using XA R9.0 I'm looking for some software that allows me to do QC inspection receiving using a random inspection feature.

I'm ok either on the Iseries or Windows just as long as I can interface to and from the windows application. 
I've found lots of receiving software, but I'm specifically looking to implement a random process for
when to inspect incoming parts.  Track when I inspect and keep history of all parts inspections.  I am using
XA R9.0 so I do not want to get another ERP system.   What we need is just the receiving inspection program that
has random inspection of incoming vendor parts.

Vendor Performance data

We have a need to calculate vendor performance before orders are closed.
Our Purchasing Department leave many P.O. s open all year so using the XA
performance isn't working for us.  If anyone is calculating vendor
performance outside of XA can you give an example of which fields and or
files being used to get the vendor performance data.

Thank you,

Re: MAPICS-L Digest, Vol 11, Issue 5 (For Michael Bennett from Mike Ellis ISI)

Michael,

I cannot speak to the interface to Thruput directly, but the EPDM
functionality is really very nice - if properly planned and implemented.
Hopefully you have already handled all of this, but let me just mention a
few things that are important to be aware of:
1)  Have a plan for using (or not using) revisions in EPDM.  The business
linkage to any engineering system you have can be complicated, particularly
if you have well-worn processes that everyone is very accustomed to.
2)  Be aware of effectivity dates everywhere and their impact on MRP,
customer orders, production orders, etc.   I found this to be very
confounding at times when you were trying to figure out why a certain bill
was in use or which revision was picked up.   Your design of using the
system can be simple or can be sophisticated and with that comes some
degree of complexity to work out.
3)  Consider your product life cycle and how EPDM could help you keep track
of it (the Implementation Status field has lots of function behind it, but
you would have to design a new process to use it, since that's new and
different from PDM).
Those are just my initial thoughts for you to consider - and possibly
you're already well beyond those issues.
If we can be of any help, please let me know.
Mike

EPDM installations and APS bridge (ThruPut interface)

Hello Group,
   We will be installing and first testing EPDM soon and we are users of ThruPut.
Infor support indicates all is perfect with the APS bridge (ThruPut interface) with EPDM and nothing can go wrong.
:-)
We are long time PCC, PDM and PDM+ users and all is well in our little world at the moment.
Any feedback good or not so good would help ease our minds.
Wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

Total labor hours per assembly

We need the labor hours that are associated with the top level and lower levels dollars that are broken out in
ITMRVB (ITEMASB).  Has anyone developed a program to do this?
