Working with pricing on Supplier agreements
Hello, We are having a need to work with Supplier agreements with type Blanket Purchase order. This gives us a good way of creating call of orders to our suppliers.The problem we are facing is that we don’t find a good way to handle the price information for the parts linked to the agreement. We are in a need to apply date control to our prices like it’s possible in the price list for “Supplier for Purchase Part” because our purchase prices are changing during the agreement period.The price in the agreement does not give us this opportunity. So, the dilemma for us is. We must connect the parts to our agreement to be able to create call of orders linked to the agreement? But when they are linked to the agreement, we can no longer have date control to the price.We think it’s not possible to handle the pricing separately on “Supplier for Purchase Part” because the hierarchy for orders to select price selects agreements before price lists.Does anyone have an idea how we could think?

Package Part Demand
I’m looking for a screen that shows demand against package parts. It won’t show under the “inventory part availability planning” screen because these are picked to order. How would I see all open customer order lines for a package part and demand for the components in IFS? Do I have to look by component to see demand?

Demand Planner & IPR vs DDMRP
Good afternoon. We have been implementing DDMRP and have now also purchased demand planner and IPR. I am curious if it is more advantageous to use DDMRP than IPR? Is DDMRP the next step beyond IPR? Is it that we may want to use DDMRP for some parts, while using IPR for others? All the best, Sarah

Error when trying to correct Purchase Group directly on PO
There seems to be some correlation between the status of a PO and changing the Purchase Group. Purchase Group drives posting controls and AP not able to update from the invoicing side.Received an error message that is preventing the Buyer to update the Purchase Group directly on the PO. It is prompting a Change Order just to make this correction.Does anyone know how to get around this? We would prefer not to make a new change order just to correct an incorrect purchase group entry.

Commission Agreement Setup in IFS App-10
Hi all,We are trying to set up a Commission Agreement tied to a Sales Group. We have created the Commission Agreement and entered the values. In this test case, 20% commission is awarded until 500k in sales, then 15% and then 10% after a million.We tested by fully invoicing a few sample orders. The first 2 orders calculated correctly at 15% commission (500k each). The 3rd order should’ve calculated at 10% since 1M has been reached, but it calculated at 20%. Am I missing something in the setup? We chose Additive calculation method so the percentage would change when sales reached the targets, but the lines seem to be calculating individually. I made sure to enter the Sales Group in the agreement and invoice parts with that same sales group. Thank you,Steve
Purchase Req Authorization Set-up
We are in IFS9 - I need to set-up an authorization Routing template or rule - not sure which might have what I need, that will allow me to have a back-up authorizer. In other words, we only need one person to authorize, but we want to add another to cover when they are not available. I have it set-up in the Routing template with both Authorizers at Step No 10 - but that requires both to authorize. If I change the set-up so the Step No are 10 & 20, it still requires both to authorize but in an order.Is there a way to have 2 individuals but only require 1 authorization? If not through the template, may another option? Thanks!
