Hi All, One of my client is evaluating the possibility of integrating CRM Business Opportunity Lines for existing sales parts with IFS Demand Planner Solution. I believe demand planner graph does not support future Customer Orders or Business Opportunities. Is there any customer who has done similar customization or catered for similar requirement? Appreciate your suggestions on workarounds as well Thanks a lot Kind regardsChanaka
When creating supplier records, sometimes there are conditions that need to be met before purchasing officers place an order. Eg: “quality review required before order placement”, or “supplier must not be used on XYZ site” or “JSA and work plan must be submitted before work undertaken” - those sort of things. However once I create a supplier record, there is no way that I know of to prevent orders being placed until these conditions are met. Essentially, I need some sort of alert to the purchasing officer to appear when they go to create a PO for some suppliers. I can put a sticky note on the supplier record highlighting these requirements, but the purchasing team don’t go into the supplier record when they create a PO, so they won’t see these requirements. Is there anything that can do this?
Since upgrading from apps9 to apps10 about 2 months ago, we have had an issue with our MRP Action Proposals. MRP is generating the proposal “Remove Order” for parts which have requirements, and also the POs are already in state “Arrived”. I have checked our legacy ifs9 environment and confirmed that this was not occuring in apps9. Is there a way to prevent this from happening when we run MRP? The purchase orders are already arrived, so in my opinion it doesn’t make sense that IFS is recommending us to cancel these order lines, and it is causing confusion for our material handlers.

Good afternoon,I am in a test environment in the Demand Plan Server Dashboard. All elements Execute correctly until I attempt to Execute a “Create Forecast” function. I saw another post on this about changing dates. Can I get an elaboration on the dates that need to be changed? The error I get is: “Job finished with ERROR : Create Forecast 0.837 [s]”
In IFSAPP10, I am trying to determine what actions on a Purchase Order (header, Part Order Lines, other tabs) will initiate a Revision increase on the Purchase Order Header. As seen on the printed PO and also Misc Order Info> Revision No.I have a user who expects to see the PO Rev up when a Part Line revision is modified. Similarly, they expect a PO Rev up when a Charges line is added. Those appear to be significant enough changes that we expected the PO Revision to change, but we do not.Conversely, we do see a PO Revision change for something that seems more minor, such as modifying Misc Order Info> Ship-Via Code. Can anyone explain or point me to documentation about the rules or logic? Thank you.Tim

Hi all, I have a question (well actually 1000 questions) in regards to MRP. We are trying to move the planning process into MRP, I am fairly new to the company and to IFS. We want the forecast to be generated in the DP client, and then transferred to MS1 and MRP, and then for MRP to plan purchase requirements. However, we are raising shop orders for our finished goods, as well as assembled parts. As far as I can tell MRP would plan for both, Forecast from the DP client and shop orders, which would a duplication. How can I set MRP to look at Forecast only, not at shop orders? Thank you, Jess
Hello Everyone, I am trying to setup the basic data to run a Intersite flow. In customer’s scenario, he starts with a Purchase Order and then an automatic customer order will be created. All these involves Internal suppliers and Internal customers. what basic data should be there prior running a flow like this. Thank you in advance.
I am looking for direction on how to set the system up to allocate costing accurately when we have to order in batch qtys. For instance, our supplier sells the part in boxes of 100. We have to order from the supplier in eaches, so we order 1 box from the supplier. When we receive it into inventory, it is received in as one box. How do we reconcile this when we begin utilizing this material in work orders, shop orders etc? We want to be sure that the costing works appropriately and that we are only allocating cost for the portion of the material that we use. Is there a way to purchase in box qtys, but receive in single qtys for costing purposes without messing anything up?
Hi, I would like to spread NON inventory parts to Sites in IFS Cloud, to avoid creating the same non inventory part in each site. I found Assortment functionality which allows to spread the part to multiple sites but the part is created as inventory part not non inventory part.Is it possible to use this functionality with Non inventory parts ? or is there any functionality in IFS which allows to spread non inv part into different sites Thank you ,
Hi,I’m looking to send items away for refurbishment to then bring back into inventory but I’m unsure how to set this up correctly. The process I have to follow is missing something with this step and I’m unsure how to correct it. How do I do this step below as it doesn’t seem to give me this option or I don’t have the correct access to do so? The above step completes this transaction below which I’ve been unable to replicate
I am trying to generate spend analysis data in my environment, but I keep getting an error saying that I don’t have the required access to the companies. On the Spend Analysis settings I have only set up 1 company to which I do have access. The category assortment on the spend analysis settings also only has the same company, and there are no transactions for parts on belonging to this assortment.Are there any other reasons why I would be getting this error, and how do I resolve this?This is on IFS Cloud 22R1.
