Requirement/scenario: To make sure we have enough material (Components) to produce a finish product, and the material isn’t sold or used on another Shop Order, we need to be able to reserve some planned scrap. But, when we produce the product, we need the ability to report actual scrap and issue Material (Components) only for real/actual scrap. We can’t have the planned scrap automatically issued.Currently in IFS: When selecting the Reserve/Issue Planned Scrap checkbox, IFS will reserve the planned scrap but will also issue it regardless of if you have actual scraps or not.Question: Wondering if anyone else in the community has a similar requirement and how do you handle it?We’re currently having to perform manual reservations for each such components.Thank you in advance!Maximilien
We are looking for ways to plan and control the production of high volume parts somewhere in the middle of a more complicated product. One way would be to use Production Line Management. But since the parts are serial tracked and we need as built structures, we cannot use production schedules. So generating shop order requisitions from the proposed schedule would be an option. However, MRP does not seem to see these as supply for its demand. I get a shop order requisition from MRP too. That does not happen with a production schedule. This seems inconsistent to me. What’s the idea?
Hi I have read this, but have a slightly different problemUndo Delivery of Customer Order Line with Supply Code of Service OrderI have a WO with a Connected Customer Order on the CO information tab and the order type Normal OrderIf I create a Invoice PreviewAnd approve it the lines are added to the existing Customer order The lines are added in status Released but my problem occurs when the lines have been delivered/ invoiced.So If I then want to revoke approval (which I need to do to create credit lines) on the Invoice PreviewI get this error in the background.If the customer order lines where invoiced the same error would occur but would be “The operation "SetCancelled" is not allowed for Customer Order Line objects in state "Invoiced". And if I try to undo the delivery I get this error Does anyone know of a way to get around this?
Hi. we are using Apps 10. We are using MS level 1 set at Make-to-stock and have input our desired forecast, run MS and MRP for components which has generated all the required requisitions perfectly. we have then loaded and released a customer order for the MS part but when we run site MRP it does not consume any of the MS forecasted supply and generates additional requisitions by MRP creating unconsumed supply. What can be causing this to happen?regardsJamie
I can't close an outside operation that has been manually reopened even though the entire quantity is completed
Hello,I have a problem: I have two outside operations in my shop order. I split each operation into two. Then, I received the first three lines ( I processed the first three purchase orders) and the lines closed.By mistake, I reopened the three lines from the "Report Shop Order Operation" screen. The three rows changed to "Partially reported" status and since then I can't close them. I tried to reopen the orders and close them again and it did not work. I have searched everywhere but with no result. The problem is that I can't receive the fourth line , I have an error message that says the first two lines are not closed. Thank you
Hi everyone, Our quality department needs to track certain lots.For this, they need to be sent an email (for now the best option), for when the lot is issued in a shop order.The way I’m thinking of doing this is to create a custom field on Inventory Part in Stock or Lot Batch Master, and based on that, create a custom event on issues from a shop order, when this custom field is not empty. My question is if this is the best option, or if anybody sees a more efficient solution for this?Thanks,Carlos Mendes
Hi All,Looking for some advise/ your thoughts:Historically we have locked our Structure/Routing levels to Restricted. We see this as impractical as it leaves us potentially un-flexible in conjunction to change requests, awaiting approval for minor changes. For the time being we are looking to move to enhanced. Allowing us to to make basic numeric changes on the structure and routing without being able to add or delete. This seems sensible, but simplistic seems fine as long as there is a level of trust. Have any of you set view only permissions to groups of people for Routing/ Structures? Is this easy to set up? Structure Routing security levels Appreciate your thoughts! Alex
Hello All, I am unsure if the functionality exists in IFS, but I am curious if it is possible to drive Shop Order creation based on demand for a certain part number. As an example we make Part A and Part B that reside in the product structure of Part C. We would like to have the system drive demand to both parts regardless of what the on hand inventory is for the part that MRP did not plan for. So, if MRP drives demand for part A, we would like for it to also drive demand for Part B at a specific ration (2 to 1 as an example). The reverse then being that if MRP drives demand for part B, there is also a Shop Order created for Part A (at a ratio).
HiI have an example where APB seams to be ignoring supply .Having Part 1425517 pm actuator as a component below changes the planned finished date from October to the following February this is despite pegging to supply due in October (so 3582).There is also ample resource capacity in oct/nov to manufacture both. All parts supply are inventory, Parts are Finite scheduled.No other demand for part 1425517 exists. No condition code.No location restrictions. Result with pm actuator as component Result Without pm actuator as component I understand that the Feb. date is using the inventory part lead time but i would of thought that actual supply would be taken into account. All help very welcome as this has got me scratching my head.Thanks Ian
Hi everyone,This might be a bit long but please bear with me.Our facility (Company A) manufactures a product which is sent to a sister company (Company B) for a specific operation to be performed. The product is then returned to the original company for further processing. We operate using recipes and produce in batches with lot control so our first attempt to set up this scenario is as follows: A Shop order is created to mix the original product A Shop order with an outside operation is created for the work being done by the sister company. The material for this shop order is the original product. Step 1 was simple. We created the original productWe are having some trouble with the details of Step 2Company A - The shop order for step 2 creates a purchase requisition for the sub-contract work Company A - The req is converted to a PO and sent to the supplier (we use the intercompany messaging) Company B - Receives the incoming customer order and converts it into a customer order. Which
Hello, Is there a way to copy base profile changes to personal profile without doing any changes in Personal Profile?For eg:Let’s take ‘Active Work Order’ screen.In Base Profile the layout is like:Col1 Col2 Clo3 Col4 NewCol1 NewCol2 Personal Profile layout like:Col2 Col1 Col3 Col4 So now I want to add these 2 new columns(NewCol1,NewCol2) in personal profile without changing it’s current layout like:Col2 Col1 Clo3 Col4 NewCol1 NewCol2 Hope the question is clear enough. Thanks
Hi All We have an interesting issue which we are looking to overcome, so any suggestions are welcome. Background:In our current system (not IFS), we have routes set up like:10 - Setup Machine A machine setter sets up the machine - this will involve running a few parts to make sure the setup is correct. 20 - Approve Setup When the setup has been complete, an inspector comes to make sure he is happy with the product produced in the setup. 30 - Run Machine for Batch An operator will run the machine for the remaining batch. 40 - Inspect An inspector will inspect samples of the batch.All of our operations and setups are timed as we pay a bonus on the operators’ efficiency. Going Forward:In IFS (and any ERP) the above setup causes issues. As it stands, when you schedule eg 10 jobs through the machine for various different shop orders (some might be the same part), it schedules all of the ‘Setup Machine’ operations one after another, all of the ‘Approve Setup’ one after another.In reality, op
I’ve run into a situation a couple of times where a customer requests an RMA (return material authorization) for one part number of a full build-up (shop order/DOP). Right now, we are creating an RMA that’s not connected to a customer order and creating the RMA for the returned item to issue a credit to the customer. We would like a way to connect the RMA to the original customer order so that there’s a trail of where the request came from and so that the customer doesn’t try to return the same item twice. We would also like to be able to connect the return to the salesman that sold it to the customer.Is there any way to do this?
Using Apps10. We have quite a few raw materials these days that are on allocation from the supplier. I would like to prompt customer service when entering an order line for a sales part that contains one of these materials so we can verify availability with the supplier before confirming the order to the customer. Any suggestions?
Hi,Related to question https://community.ifs.com/finance-financials-42/currency-rate-part-cost-6083.We have the same conditions as in above question.Though we have > 100 000 purchased parts and several people calculates new parts during the year, we cannot calculate the parts in Excel, as suggested in the answer for the related question. We use standard cost as inventory valuation method.The purchase parts must be valued by a budget currency rate that is set once a year.To handle this we have a currency rate type called Budget, set as Normal but not the default currency type for that. The default normal currency rate is updated once a month from our financial system. This currency type is used by purchase orders and customer orders. Therefore it is no option to use the same currency type for both part calculation and every day work in Supply chain. Is there any new functionality in IFS Cloud for cost calculation with different currency rate types?We need the functionality for all op
Hello everyone, (Sorry for poor quality img)I´ve run into some issues concering the receiving of serialized parts in the component repair order (CRO) flow. The problem has started to become more frequent and I would like to find the root cause of this issue. Summary of problem: The repair technician wants to close the repair shop order. First, the time of the operation is reported then the reception of the parts should be done.The problem is that an error message appears which signals that we should use the same availability control ID or W/D/R number in the existing stock.We don´t assign different W/D/R numbers currently, and Control ID’s are not common practice in that area of operations. Therefore, the issue is interesting to say the least. Our setup:We are currently not tracing finished/semi-finished products. Although, the products that are received through the CRO - process has a serial number. Current workaround is to change the Control ID in the “Receive Parameter”, which enabl
