Hello Community, I have a question, how can we capture any new Customer order in Manual historical data for demand planner. do we have to manually enter the list of new customer orders in manual historical data from customer order lines?can you please also help me understand that all newly entered customer orders will be captured by Base flow under internal source data or external source data?Thanks in advance for help.
In the IFS Cloud version, is it possible to set Workcenters and other resources to Finite schedule as we could do in the previous versions to get Shop Orders to schedule based on constraints? If not, is there a plan to use PSO or something else to get to that point?I know there is sequencing in APB, but was looking for a way to automatically slot/schedule the orders.Best Regards,Jeff Mazer
Hello, I have been looking for help on the FIFO picking in IFS (for Customer Orders and Shop Orders). I am looking to confirm that when IFS generates a picklist, that it is directly the associate to the oldest stocking record so that we are using our oldest material and shipping our oldest product. Is there a way to verify this is properly configured in IFS Apps 10? Any guidance would be appreciated.

Community,We are implementing multisite now. so for our project delivery shop orders, semi-finished products will be manufactured in different sites, once they are received into the stock, they suppose to be moved to the top parent part site and do a final assembly.my question is, how to move these parts? are they going to be the distribution orders? but, we tried planning network MRP, also PMRP, it just does not generate anything.if it has to be transport task to move the material, why system does not generate the transport task automatically? what did i miss?Thank you.
Hi,What is the best way to handle the below scenario in setting up Manufacturing Control Plan? I have several Data points to check. But the responsibility is divided into Operator, QC and QC lab. Some data points checked by all parties but some by one party. Since we can have only one control plan, I have to register all the Data points under one Control plan and once the Analysis Result generate all the Data points comes in the Analysis Result. So the all data points in the Analysis Result are not relevant for a specific party. Is there a better way to setup this scenario?
Hi IFS Community,I have a question about functionality so-called Spare Parts, in Engineering Part Revision (TAB).Engineering\PDM\Engineering Part\Engineering Part RevisionQ: Our customer's question is what this tab is for or better - whether it has an connection into some other/next processes, specifically into the service/maintenance, where Spare parts can be defined at the level of Serial objects (also TAB)?An official help (F1) mentions the following: "The spare part list can be copied to the modules IFS/Project Delivery and IFS Maintenance.”Q: What exactly is the possibility to use the filled TAB from PDM in other processes?Thank you in advance for any information regarding this,David
In IFS Cloud I am able to create a Prototype Shop Order, produce a serialized part, receive it into inventory and reserve it on a Customer Order. Is it normal? I don’t think it is correct that a prorotype could be sold, furthermore with the same price of a normal item.Could anyone explain me if there is any setting to prevent this scenario?Thanks a lotStefano
Does IFS Cloud still have the Copy Services functionality that used to be as shown here in Apps 10?And if not, what is the new best way to adapt existing parts/consists of, in Cloud Engineering PDM?On Engineering Part Revision, RMB, choose Copy ServicesUse the assistant to Copy Structure, Copy Part Characteristics, Copy Document Survey I do not find this in Cloud on any of these screens: Engineering Part Revisions, Engineering Parts, Engineering, Engineering Part Navigator, Part
Hi, We would like to start using our employees/labor classes as a Finite resource. Now, only the work centers are finite.Is it correct, like with the work centers, we just need to put the labor class on finite capacity and connect the calanders/ calculate capacity? How does APB behave if you don’t have anough capacity on your labor class? Let say you need 2 employees, but you only have one. Can you than say ‘it will take double as long’ or does he just say ‘not possible’?Thanks!
Hello, We acquired a company and are in the process of merging them with our IFS Apps. 10 environment. (FYI>The acquired company is also operating on IFS Apps. 10, too.) The company does have a couple satellite offices and a warehouse which performs all aspects of receiving, shipping, customer order fulfillment and shop order assembly work. We are leaning towards setting up a 2nd Site for this company. Has anyone prepared a Pros vs. Cons analysis when evaluating the setup of Multi-Sites within your IFS environment?Thanks,Rick Messina
We are currently facing an issue where our WIP is being driven to a negative balance that appears to be driven by partially completed shop orders. As customer demand fluctuates, our production planning schedules are adjusted based on the priority of the newer orders/jobs received. Orders currently in process may be paused to start the newer, higher priority orders. Because of this, we have many shop orders which are processed partially, have operations reported partially and have shop order receipts received partially into finished goods. At any given time, there are a large number of shop orders found in partially completed status.The partially completed shop orders are receiving the full cost of material and labor into finished goods instead of a proportionate amount of material and labor. As a result, it appears that more cost is being taken out of WIP than has been added to it. For example,A 500 piece shop order is partially completed with 300 pieces. Expecting only the following t
In Aurena (Upd 13) on the Change Request Form we are using the Object Connection to point to Equipment Functional Objects.Out of the box things are working good.We would like to be able to search via a Custom Field. Which we can get to show but we get an error when searching. Loc is the custom field.When we search with the Loc Column we get the following error:An internal server error occurred.

Hi All,I have successfully managed to replace the IFS Purchase Order report with our own Crystal Report, all works fine. When you email the purchase order the pdf is attached to an email example : Purchase_Order_18042.pdfthe number in the document name (i.e. 18042) relates to the unique RESULT_KEY field (from PURCH_INFO_SERVICES_RPV) generated each time you request a Purchase Order print.Is it possible to change the document name so it includes the Purchase Order number and not the Result Key.Thanks.
Hello!Is there a way to transfer Inventory part unit cost, which IFS automatically updates, directly to under costing, for example to cost set one? What we would like to do is update our Sales part base prices from costing that way that we could use unit cost value which IFS calculates when receiving purchase parts. So that Inventory part unit cost could be transferred to one of the cost sets under costing and from there it could be transferred to sales part base price. Thanks for all answers!-Eetu
Hi, We are using manufacturing modules with configured parts. The setup for the inventory parts : Weighted average for the purchased parts Standard cost, per configuration for manufactured partsAt the creation of the shop order, the standard cost is calculated using the structure information.I have a question regarding the standard cost update :We may have a time lap between the shop order creation and the shop order process. So if the components parts costs are updated (eg.: variance of the purchased price) I would like to update the standard cost and include the component parts costs, into the inventory value.I have already setup a migration job, to update the shop order costs. But this migration job, doesn’t update the standard cost.Do you have any inputs regarding the automatic update the shop order standard cost, through the shop order cycle ?Thanks, Tarek
