Hello,

 

We change suppliers for the same part, using supplier for purchase part. We want to be able to see what stock we have from each supplier, and we want to be able to see what stock we have shipped to customers from each supplier. 

 

What possibilities exist in IFS10?

 

Thank you,

 

Basil

Hi,

i remember looking at the supplier /Customer 360 view screen in IFS…

The Supplier/Customer 360 Degree View includes assorted information related to the supplier/Customer in detail

however I have only seen a Tab called “Purchased Parts” in the supplier 360 window,  for the view of all the purchased parts ever bought from the supplier

There was a window i recall called  ‘inventory transaction report’

have you Checked the Order report which may have some predefined reports on inventory analyses etc,

and i guess u may not get the info what you are needing here

Not found any report or screen with the info that you are wanting,

Maybe it will help if I rephrase my question.

We change supplier of parts, and our goal is to keep the same part number to reduce complexity. Supplier for purchase part enables this. The parts can be traded goods (purchased finished goods) or raw materials used in our production.

When we ship the traded goods to customers, or when we ship manufactured goods (containing the raw materials) to customers, how can we see from which supplier those traded goods came from, or with which supplier’s raw materials were used in the manufactured good?

Hi @Basil ,

The best way to track any part is to enable the lot or serial tracking. In this way, you can create a report with a query and find the PO and supplier used for it from Purchase Order Receipt lines, from Supplier Statistics, or from Inventory Transaction History, filtering the ARRIVAL transactions, for example. 

I hope this helps,

hi Pilar,

Thank you. So I understand correctly, is the lot tracking something we would have to enable for a whole site? And would it enable us to see the source of a part delivered in a customer order? So we could see, for example, that the stock sent from from supplier x?

Hi @Basil ,

Lot tracking must be enabled in Master Part (Part Catalog) for each part needed to track.

With this, any inventory transaction for the specific lot number can be tracked, as well as any purchase receipt and corresponding purchase order, so then, corresponding supplier.

You can then create a quick report to fetch all lot numbers in the receipt lines for purchase orders of specific supplier, so then, the stock sent by that supplier. You can also track in all the receipts the specific lot numbers scrapped or returned to your supplier. But you can also track where these lot numbers were used in application after received (shop orders, customer orders, material requisitions...), for example, in Inventory Transaction History.

Lot batch history can also provide information of all the history of the specific lot number.
