Reserve from stock, but only issue from inbound/specified locations
Hi, In our current process, we reserve materials in the warehouse (picking locations). The warehouse worker moves those reserved goods to the production floor with a transport task (which is inside a warehouse task). The operator issues the materials and starts the shop order clocking. We want to make sure that the operator can only issue after the warehouse worker has finished the warehouse task. So he should only be able to issue from the inbound or specified locations (not from the picking locations).Is this possible?
Transaction Revaluation Event
Does anyone have any info/documentation/knowledge, please, on Transaction Revaluation Events? We’re in Apps9, running weighted average costing. This is an OOREC/Receipt of Shop Order transaction for a Shop Order connected to a Project. It’s the first time we have manufactured the part. I don’t think that’s partiularly relevant as there are other OORECs with Reval Events on parts we have manufactured multiple times. The total cost of the shop order is the 3506.86 (3336.46+170.4) and the part’s current inventory value is 3506.86. The part was subsequently issued at 3506.86. Material Cost on the SO was 2086.59, Op Cost was 1420.27. Why did it not just OOREC at 3506.86? Where does this 3336.46 come from? I’m sure the answer will be blindingly obvious … Thanks in advance!

User Id on Inventory Part in Stock Reservation
We currently reserve shop orders to be picked and issued, we have multiple stores people carrying out this task and we would like to see the User Id of the stores person who has reserved stock , this then will allow user to search for their User Id in Inventory Part in Stock Reservation window and export out an equivalent picking list of what is reserved, as this screen shows Stores Location. I hope this would be as simple as a custom field and someone may guide me on how to do this.
MS Level 0 Part
Hello, I am finding that we are not using MS Level 0 parts in our system. We are using MS Level 1 parts as top level parts instead of components. Is there anyone else out there that does this in IFS? It’s my understanding that Level 0 is supposed to be Top Level while Level 1 is components. What are the problems that could arise from using IFS this way? Thanks!
Register Arrival, Cannot see part shortage alert
Community,We are on APP10, UPD9. We are setting shortage handling functionality.We are expecting alert message “ There are shortage on Inventory Part XXXX” prompted when the part is really in short. But system just remain silent though we do see the part in Inventory Parts with Shortages window.I remember when in APP9, system does have this prompt. why APP10 behaves differently? Thank you.
PDM - Engineering Revision Transfer - Make and purchased (raw)
Hi,our customer has the following requirements.They have 3-Site, for example:ABCHe create an “Engineering Part” with “Provide Code” and “Product Structure”, for example:“Part Number” = 1212“Provide Code” = MakeThe next step would be “Engineering Revision Transfer Action”.The “Part Type” per Site are:A = ManufacturedB = Purchased (raw)C = is not needed For Site A with “Part Type” “Manufactured” it does the transfer.For Site B with “Part Type” “Purchased (raw)” it does not the transfer! This is the Error message, I understand that, but this situation exists and I think not only in this company. Is there a way to transfer a “Engineering Part” with “Part Type” manufactured and “Product Structure” as a “Purchased (raw)” Part?Would appreciate a timely response, thank you in advance for your assistance.BR,Milanko
DOP pegged SO update setting
Hi, The default setting for ‘DOP pegged SO update’ (Inv part - manufacturing tab) is “Planned”. For parts with the supply type “Requisition”, this can not be changed to “Released”. If I make a DOP with full level settings, i get pegged shop orders after netting and releasing (assuming I don’t have stock). Also for parts with the supply type “Requisition”. I want to update these shop orders if they are in released status, however due to the setting above I cannot do this: I first need to go to all DOP orders and change the setting there to overrule the setting on inventory part.This is very time consuming in large DOP structure. Is there a faster way to change this for every part?

How to manage cut raw material inventory
Hello Community -We are on Apps10 update 17. This subject has been discussed before but I do not see any good solutions so I am looking for options. A challenge we have with our raw materials inventory is where the total inventory (in feet for example) is correct but this total may be made up of multiple pieces of varying lengths that are not suitable for the inventory demand. Does anyone have a good process of tracking this in IFS?
Hi, I am wondering if there is an ability to split an existing lot number into two lot numbers? So example would be that we have a part that is 25 linear meters in length, lot number 123. I now want to create a new lot number 234 for 10 linear meters whilst reducing 123 to 15. Is there a transaction or method to achieve this in IFS? Thanks

Keeping Costing Structure Identical for all Sites (regardless of Manuf./Purch. Part)
Our company has one manufacturing site that supplies all other [seven] sites using distribution orders. So, our main site (Site1) has a mix of [Inventory Part] Part Types of Manufactured and Purchased while the other sites (Site2-Site8) have all Part Type = Purchased Raw. We would like the cost structure of our inventory parts to be identical throughout all sites. Currently, Site1 uses Costing Template M-110 which breaks out cost into cost buckets 100, 200, and 221. Site2-Site8 uses costing template P-110 which accumulates all of the cost in bucket 110 (because these parts are “purchased”). Is is possible to make all 8 sites have the same [M110] cost structure that break the costs out into the three different buckets? (even though Site2-Site8 does not have product structures or routings in their sites...) Furthermore, we update all our part costs periodically. We plan to calculate the cost in Site1 (because this is where the product structures and routings exist) but then would like it
