I’m trying to use the function Copy Selected rows (1) and Paste Rows (1)to copy only one row from one structure to another but it pastes the entire sub-structure of the part I’m copying.Does anybody know if it’s possible to copy only one row (the selected row) and not the entire structure?Or how to control if it’s only one row or structure that is being copied.(I get the same result when entering the part number manually in the new structure.) Br, Patrick
I am having a problem with certain shop orders that when Using the infinite scheduler, when I put in an earliest start date, it automatically sets the SO start date to a day earlier than the Earliest start date. I have not Queue time on any operations and cannot figure out why IFS is doing this,
All,The idea of manufacturers adopting more of a more circular economy is not new, we have been discussing it for years (“Every end is a new beginning” - Volvo Remanufacturing (ifs.com))With our latest IFS Cloud 23R2 release, we have added more capabilities to support customers wanting to expand in this area, so I wanted to ask the question as to which of you are either operating a circular economy, or plan to in the next 12 months.Please add your comments below so that as a community we can learn from each other as to how it is affecting you and others.Thanks,Antony
Hi, From a DOP, we can net into a inventory supplied purchase order. However, only if that order is in a planned or released status. Once it’s confirmed, IFS will not net it. You can manually peg it, but no netting. Is this normal behaviour, or somewhere a setting? It doesn’t sound logical to me why IFS skips confirmed purchase orders in the netting proces?
Hello, I would like to know how to configure a part based on a color:The requirement is such that if i take color RED specified for part , the cost of the part should be 333.I did the configurations, however on my estimate whenever i chose the color red, the price is set to 0.00. Do you have an idea please?Thanking you beforehand. BRLakshmi

Hi Community,When I try to create a “New Repair Work Order” (this is in the cloud) for a Serial/Non-serial part, it only shows serials that are only in inventory (current position = in inventory).But in Apps 10, it shows issued serials also for repair.Is this a bug or a new setting in the new release of Cloud? Thank you!
Hi everyone, we are urgently looking for production-based IFS customers who have implemented S&OP (Sales and Operations Planning) with the associated connections to RRP and Master Planning.It would be a bonus if the IFS business planning were also linked to the tactical planning.We and our international manufacturing customer want to get insight into the companies that have already implemented strategic and tactical planning in IFS. We would really appreciate it if there was an opportunity to exchange some information about the approach and setup during a short call.Thank you, Willy
Hello, I am hoping to understand MRP Action Proposals better. I thought MRP would propose reschedule days for actions, however, there are instances where I see both fields are blank. As an example, I have a part with action proposals for Plan Supply is Past Due and Demand is Past Due. Would the system not propose I move the MRP SOR to make the stock sooner? Would this field be blank, in the event that the proposed move is before today’s date? We do not have availability check enabled for our parts, so a lot of this is self inflicted, I am trying to best understand how to properly use action proposals to make the best planning decision possible. Any guidance would be appreciated.
Hi,In my company we assemble and sell machinery. The machines are configured in the IFS configurator but we have a challenges with adding functions that are pure software.The goal is that the client can choose a software function to the configuration and then this is added to the product structure or the routing to ensure that the software engineers remembers to add the feature during manufacturing. Any ideas on how to do this? BR Thomas
Hi all,I have a situation where we need to be able to issue a minimum of 90% of the material required for the Shop order Lot size and enable Operation reporting and receipt of the full Shop Order Lot size.Simplified Material Check enables us to receive the full lot size even when less than the required material has been issued but does not have an allowance setting. Any help would be appreciated.ThanksPaul
I had a customer ask me to provide a 10,000 foot overview of the Cost Value Analysis and frankly, this is the first time I have ever encountered it. Does anyone have any knowledge of what it is, how it works and the data prerequisites. The help text is woefully inadequate but if I had an existing example, I could reverse engineer its functions. Thanks!
In IFSv10, do setup and factor unit “hours” costs distribute based on the quantity quoted or based on the standard lot size from the inventory part or part cost record? In IFSv7.5, we had issues with it based on the quotation even though we manufacture in a higher lot size. Is there a way to base all interim cost calculations based on a standard lot size to avoid cost variation for the same part? It looks like a new field was added in part cost/part cost details called Standard sales quantity. How is this used? Thank you,John
As a day-to-day process, when a drawing is attached to an Engineering Part Revision and the part is Transferred, the attached document follows along to the Purchase Part header and Product Structure header.When a Shop Order is generated for that part, the document again follows along because it is attached to the Product Structure.The examples below. When there is an Outside Process, you RMB on the Operation to be performed in order to create the Purchase Requisition. The Part Number is added ad hoc on the Shop Order. In the example below the Outside Process P/N is 22000886-PROCESS. The question is … is there a way for IFS to automatically attach the drawing that is already attached to the Shop Order for that Operation? Is there a setting we have not used in the past or are we stuck doing this manually? Thank you for taking the time to look at this.
I am helping one of our sites clean up information and during the pandemic they made the decision to make more parts PMRP planned, now that lead times are not as long, we would like to revert parts back to standard planned on the part.I have been able to test out breaking the connection on Purchase Orders and Shop Orders that have been created. We have Projects that are showing PMRP Planned demand, and when I flip the requisition to an order the connection is still there.Is there a way to break that connection on projects for parts that have been switched back to standard planned? There are numerous parts that need to be flipped that have future demand, we don't want to create issues down the road for parts that are connected to project that shouldn’t be. And would like to do one clean up not multiple.
Hello, I’ve set up a calendar where I have a shift pattern like this:Shift 1: 10pm - 6amShift 2: 6am - 2pmShift 3: 2pm 10pmWhere I’m using the “Last Period Belongs to Next Day” flag as follows: Schedule looks like this: This works fine/as expected for capacity generation. However, I’ve tried to create a Period Template using this calendar (set as site manufacturing calendar) and I get an error message. I think this is because ‘Sunday’ does not exist in the calendar, because the working period belongs to Monday. However the period start date is Sunday, so this is what the system is trying to use to start each period. Is there any way to correct this? Or should I just create a new calendar that runs 12am-12am to use for the period template?
I've been trying to use asset design and project functionalities to create structures that can later be converted into equipment structures for maintenance purposes.The business case is a company that needs to have default equipment structures that serve as template without referencing particular serial parts, and, that unlike serial of funtional structures, can be easily copied with all of their components. I've been trying to understand which steps are needed to create design object structure and later convert it to an equipment structure. Does someone know what I could be missing?
Hello all, I was wondering if anyone else has come across this scenario before? The scenario is in Apps 10 EE. We have received some parts into stock from a shop order. The parts were marked as requiring an expiration date (mandatory expiration date check box checked on Inventory Part). So when we received them into stock they were given an expiration date. We then reopened the shop order and tried to unreceive it because we needed to make adjustments. However, when we were trying to do this we were presented with an error message saying that an expiration date is mandatory and requires a value. Why would the system check for an expiration date when you unreceive on the shop order? It doesn’t make sense to me? The only way we could get around this error was to uncheck the box for mandatory expiration date, then unreceive the goods, and then check the box again. Am I missing some logic here?Thank you in advance
Hi All, we are using IFS Cloud 23R1. We are having issues with configured items releasing 2 shop orders for 1 customer order line. The part is set to supply code - shop order.Example:S631487.1.1- configured panel customer order line createdS631487.1.1 - shop order created (this is normal)S631487.1.2 - shop order created (this is extra)The shop orders seems to be created when released from credit block but we’re not sure if this is the issue or not. This has worked in the past so we do not know where/why/when this started happening.We recently implemented Capability Check. Could that be part of the issue??Any help is appreciated.
