PO has been created from Supply Request from a project activity through Project Misc. Parts. I am looking to split the resulting confirmed PO line into multiple releases for delivery date planning while maintaining the links from project supply request, quotation, requisition and PO. The duplicate function that I would normally use to duplicate the line and adjust the quantity of each release does not carry the necessary links. Is this release splitting possible without breaking the project links and manually recreating them?
First, I apologize if this is in the wrong sub forum. This question technically touches 3 different modules (Projects, Work Orders, Supply Chain), but since it ultimately involves trying to change a purchase requisition status, I thought procurement would be the most relevant. I am wondering if there is a way to manually close a purchase requisition that is connected to a PO when the system didn’t automatically switch the req status to closed.We are trying to close out a project that has connected work orders and associated purchase requisitions. The purchase requisition lines have been converted to purchase orders and the purchase orders have been closed (or cancelled in one case). However, we are unable to close the project activity because there are outstanding open requisitions associated with the connected work order. Generally the requisition status changes to closed once a PO is created, but for 4 requisitions associated to this project, they are still stuck in released. It’s po
Hi, Does anyone know what the task (job) “Complete DP Data Refresh” functionally does and if it is an essential task to routinely schedule for a live running demand planner client? I have a demand planner manual that details the available demand planner tasks however it does not disclose the specific actual actions that are carried out by “Complete DP Data Refresh” task and the impacts/changes they have on the client. Thanks
As part of a carbon reporting initiative, from 2023 we are being asked to record the weight and material type of components being ordered. (currently an Apps 9 user).We use a mixture of purchase parts & inventory parts. However, the vast majority of our goods are no part order lines. I am trying to consider the best approach for a solution. I see on Inventory Parts there is a Weight Fied, we might just need to add a field for material type. Also custom fields on the no part order line tab for weight and material type is my current line of thinking.Is anyone else considering or have a solution in place for this? Any alternative ideas appreciated.
Hi, using cloud, how can we easily visualise the high level planning from DOP’s and projects? The question is quite simple: we want to visualize when DOP’s and projects will start and finish. Just with a bar from start date to end date. Not too much details, not broken down into different shop orders. Just a broad view of every DOP and project that is running, for example to show to sales or manegement meetings. Does IFS have such a screen?
I have question regarding Planning Method B and On Hand quantities.We use planning method B for inventory management on higher volume items. When a customer order line is entered using “Invent Order” as the Supply Code, the parts from stock are reserved. This makes the On Hand Qty remain the same (until shipping the stock, if I understand correctly) and the Availably Qty drop.The issue I have is the Order Proposal is triggered by the On Hand Qty falling below the Order Point, rather than the Available Qty. So if I have 6 months lead time, by the time the On Hand Qty drops below the Order Point, I might already be too late to purchase more stock to avoid back order.Could perhaps someone explain the replenishment process behind Planning Method B and why it uses On Hand Qty instead of Available Qty?Thank you!
Hello,We want to minimize IT’s roll controlling (by permission set) who can create purchase requisitions (PR’s). As a matter of fact, we want to grant “Create New” PR to all users, moving the entire process to “The Business” (they control who is allowed to create PR’s). How can this be accomplished?
Hi,Is it possible to change the Components for Purchase Order Line stored BOM alternate for an purchase order?Currently the system always uses the alternate '*', but I would like to use the alternate 'SPEZ'. Can I change this somewhere in the purchase order or in a purchase requisition?Currently, I have only seen that I can manually change the components and quantity here in the Components for Purchase Order Line. @Malsha Amarasinghe and @matt.watters, do you know more about this? Thanks for the help 🤗
Right now if you select multiple parts and move to TT, it creates different TT for each part. We would like to have all selected lines under one TT. We usually do not have our parts ‘Serialized’ but if there is a Serialized part maybe it can create a different TT for the serialize part and one TT for the non-serialized part. Has anyone come up with a way of doing the above request?
Hello, We just implemented IFS and we are using the Inspect in QA process. Some receipts are for large quantities and we would like to release partial quantities from the receipt. Currently we are registering the inspection results for partial qty then changing the total inspection qty to zero in order to allow Move into Stock. However this restricts us from inspecting further until the stock is moved. Is there a better solution?
If you use suppliers webshop in Self Service Procurement portal are there some instructions what to agree (or how the set up at webshop should be) with supplier in order to get what you selected as Product Line back to IFS and if you have added suppliers part no to supplier for purchase part info should it be updated to the Product Line as Part no or not?
A purchase part connected to a supplier can be blocked from usage by setting the status to 'Not Active' in Supplier for purchase part/General tab.For an inventory purchase part, we can block the part being supplied by changing the Part status in Inventory part/General tab.Is there any other way to block the usage of a non inventory purchase part and purchase parts not connected to a supplier?
Hi, I have setup multiple steps for Auth based on spend amount. For high dollar spends the system requires each step to be authorized in order to view the next step in My Purchase Order Authorization screen in Aurena. Does anyone have a method to only trigger the last step in these scenarios?
Hi, I have a user that is unable to see the list of Purchase Order Authorizations pending in Aurena. User is unable to view in My Purchase Authorizations, Purchase Order Authorizations, Or on the Authorization tab on the PO. User is an active authorizer and part of an authorization group. I am using the same settings for other Authorizers who are able to view the list. And ideas?
This may be standard functionality and something we just need to be aware of, but if we have manually updated a price on a purchase order line and then the line is updated for quantity via purchase order change order, this is also reverting the price for the part back to the price on the supplier for purchase part. The result of this is that it goes unnoticed by the person transacting the change order and later causes an invoicing query when the prcie no longer matches the manually updated price given by the supplier. Is there any way to prevent the change order from reverting to SFPP prices when a change to quantity is made?
Our users would like to see a sum of the Price/Curr field on their Purchase Requisition Lines (generated via a work order). We can peform and advanced query and sum the field, however I do not see a way of saving this setting onto a base profile, this means we would need to perform the search every time. Any way to keep this sum field always on? We are using Apps 9 and are on the latest update.
We have created a custom field to store a piece of metadata for our purchase orders. The field is selected from a list of values which is then ‘filtered’ by using a search that filters the values based on the supplier id. I can get this to work for me, but is there a way to make this search/filter the default for all users so that when they click the LoV they always get the sub-select search?
