Hi, Is there a way in IFS which can put customer order on hold after releasing the order ? Scenario: Customer wants us to hold the order and not to ship on wanted delivery date after releasing the order. We have NR as a shipment type so whenever we release the order it creates the shipment but Can we make any setting on customer order which will not allow shipment processing ?
Hi. Need to know if there is a mechanism to convert RFQ s from multiple sites to a single Centralized Purchase Order. we can directly convert PRs from multiple sites to a Centralized PO through “Request to Order” but after creating the PRs to a RFQ we can not create a Centralized PO. as any one come across a solution for this. Thanks in Advance.
Since moving to IFS Apps 10 UPD 8 the buttons have disappeared from the Receive dialogue box. Register Arrivals RMB on line and select Receive Receive dialogue box opens but no buttons are displayed on the right-hand side: The same screen in our Test database which is IFS Apps 10 UPD7: Has anyone experienced this before and if yes, how can it be resolved.
Just looking for any “left of centre” ideas or suggestions, please… We have demand for the same purchased part (same site) from Projects Projects with purchase req authorisation Customer Orders Shop Orders Material reqs We run PMRP and MRP which generates the necessary reqs but we’re unable to consolidate the supply onto a single Purchase Order. You can mix Projects and non-project demand onto a single PO but once the req is a project one that needs purchase authorisation you can’t mix with any other POs… Any ideas gratefully received.. Thanks
Please take a look at postion control screen and Pur Req below. I expect that cost center value is mandtory on pur req screen. Control type C58 may require cost center value with Mandatory. As Pur Req registered, pre posting sub screen is pop-uped when saving. However, saving transaction without cost cent value could be allowed. After saving, pre posting pop up screen no longer is shownd again. Mandatory rule doesn’t work when Pur req resister process. Is any setup insufficient?
We are notice that when looking in Inventory Part Availability Planning that if we have a purchase order coming in the same day we go negative with demand there is no place that we see it showing up easily. I was hoping to find it in the Inventory Part Availability Exceptions but since the projected amount no longer shows negative it does not show up under the MRP message of Negative On Hand. When using MRP Workbench and the MRP Message of Late Order it does show when there is a PO coming in and has dropped below the safety stock level and when we go negative on the same day a PO is coming in. Not necessarily and easy screen to look at when you are having to look at each part and then decipher if it is just late or if we have gone negative. I have yet to come across a different MRP Message or screen that we can easily see when we go negative on a part the same day it is being delivered. We are currently in IFS 9.
Hi, Due to summer holiday in the company, we have created the Schedule Exception with “day type” weekend for the period of time( two weeks ) in July 2020, as an example see below for the 13-07-2020. However, we will still like to be able to create PO’s and recieve PO’s. Since our department for goods recieve is not closed. Does anybody have experience with that scenario ? What to do ? Best Regards, Marianne
In our site, we have one part number, for which we use Inventory Part Planning Manuf/Acquired split (50%/50%) What of course means that 50% of supply is purchased and another 50% is produced But there is one problem with that parts with Lead Times Differences Of course, Purchasing Lead time is far ahead of manufacturing lead time. It entails the thing that we are releasing purchase order much earlier than prodution order And lets say we have a demand for the date X for 200 pcs. Because of the split 100 of them has purchase requisiton and another 100 has shop order requisition When the Purchase requisiton is released and SO req isn't then there is 100 covered by PO and 100 uncovered. After next MRP this uncovered 100 pcs is again netted and calculated with the 50% split So on next day we have a 100 PO released. 50 pcs po req and 50 pcs SO req. In total it gives us split of 75% vs 25% instead of desired 50/50 Do you believe is there any way to avoid that, an
Hey guys, does anyone know a smart and automatic way to unattach parts from HUs when receiving a PO via dispatch advice? We have huge EDI shipments which will be received automatically via the Receive_Dispatch_Advice___ functionality, but as far as i have seen in the system and in the code it will only not consider HUs if you receive it to default location. I don’t think there is a setting to ignore HUs when receiving, but would be glad to be proofen wrong here. Does anyone have any experience with this or some good ideas/workarounds? Thanks, Johannes
We use Inventory Valuation Method = Weighted Average (on Apps9) and we receive inventory parts from a PO and we match the supplier invoice and pay the supplier. Then the supplier sends us a credit. Our Supplier Invoice Consideration = Transaction Based and we would expect this credit to update the inventory value of the part. How should this credit be processed? We have never set up any type of “supplier credit” series but maybe this is possible?
What is the IFS recommended way to handle the disassemble of finished goods. Eg- We might on occasion take apart finished goods and convert them back into component parts. Currently, we achieve this by simply count out finished goods and count in components.
Hi Community, In a similar manner to the question relating to Apps 10 Purchase Order and Project linkage, in Apps 9 Update 15, the No Part Order Line entry has the Delivery Address as a mandatory field. What would be the process to enable removal of the line delivery address? The rationale for this is that we have the head office site and the specific delivery location is at a different site, and the application of two different addresses is confusing to Suppliers. Before UD15 we were able to remove the line delivery address without error. Are we simply restricted to the process of changing the line or header delivery addresses to match? Any and all thoughts/guidance will be appreciated. Kind regards
Is there a way to archive or close customers so that they do not appear on any list of values search? We are looking to use the Service Quotation functionality and when opening the list of values we a customer list of 1600. A number of these customers will no longer be active but I cannot see how to set a customer to expired or closed, so that they no longer appear on lists of values.
Morning all, We have an issue where we have certain suppliers who “chance it” and send us material that they have finished early (sometimes months early). Obviously we don’t want to be taking on this stock until we actually need it however as some of it is sent by courier i.e. FEDEX, UPS etc we get the courier dropping the item off, takes a quick signature and then they are on their way. It is only after manual inspection of the delivery later that we realise that we have something we didn’t yet need. I know what you are all thinking. just tell the supplier to stop doing it! (apparently they don’t listen) For audit obviously we have to register the purchase order arrival but after this we have 3 options. Leave the stock as registered and keep stored in a goods-in location Return for Credit Return for Rework The only one that works in the way they want is Return for Rework in so far as it halts the payment, creates a return note and upon it coming back we can just re-registe
Seems like this should be easy, but we are having difficulty sharing product from one activity sequence or project to many other activity sequences or projects. We don’t want the inventory from those other projects to be shared at all. We’ve messed around with a few settings in PMRP and can’t seem to get it right. Has anyone else had to do this? Like I said it seems ‘simple’. Many thanks!
What is the best way to work according system logic in the cases when you have select the online consumption in inventory part and you will get the customer order which is not matching master schedule plan (un-forecasted demand). There is two option used in our case: Modify MS before proceeding with order → Need to wait with order Changing Supply Code in order line to Not decided → Order can be entered Following IFS logic, what is the best way to proceed to not cause un-expected issues in demands in planning time fence or outside planning time fence.
We are working to set up inter-site processing in IFS. Everything appears to be working in the PO/CO transactions, however the INVOIC transaction is getting rejected in Connectivity Inbox with the below error. C00 in the message has an appropriate invoice type so I am confused as to the cause of the error. ORA-20124: Error.NULLVALUE: Field [INVOICE_TYPE] is mandatory for Invoice Header and requires a value. Any ideas as to where to go look?
