I am looking at how Comment Functionality works for different File types as Redline? currently I have defined “doc” as view and “docx” as Redline type and expect to open comment with MS Word. however I still manually change the Redline copy from “Doc” to “Docx”. The errorI get is “Can not start external Viewer application”. This is just one example, I am trying to find out how Redline app works for each individual file type. for example for a word file,Excel or Autocad? Thanks, Aida.
Hello, I’m attempting to use the Copy Part feature to copy an Inventory Part, Routing, and Product structure to another site in my system. Currently, we are creating parts in an estimating site that houses all of our work centers, labor classes, etc. Once the parts are finalized, I would like to use the Copy Part function to move those parts to the correct manufacturing site. I have noticed that the Copy Part function works, however it does not bring over my routing steps. I’ve tried changing the status to Build, but the routing steps still do not appear after the copy. I’m not sure if there is something I’m missing, or if this is how the Copy Part function works when you try to copy to another site. The final item I’ve noticed is that you are not able to copy a new Product Structure component part to a new site unless you manually copy the part prior to running the Copy Part from the top level Inventory Part. My assumption was that if you run the Copy Part from the top level, if
Hi!We use a lot of time adding new parts and registering these on many sites. Does anyone have a good solution for copying these parts out to different sites? The data for each part are more or less exactly the same. Could for example IFS Replication be used even though it’s not separate databases or should could we use IFS data migration?
Hi, We set up control plan trigger with Time schedule of 8 hours, but when process purchase order receipt in three days, only one purchase analysis had been triggered as below snapshot, but other two days not, please help to check what is the reason for that? Your quick response is appreciated.ThanksSusan
Hi we are using apps 10 and have recently linked the material lines to the shop order operation on the product structure. The ‘Reserve/ issue method’ is set to Reserve and backflush’, since we have done this our planning department are now unable to automatically reserve material before releasing the shop order to manufacturing and the only way is to manually reserve each line item. the planner is promoted with the below warning message preventing them to auto reserve the material. does anyone know what it is causing this issue?regardsJamie
Hi We are trying to find the best way to utilize IFS Non Conformance Report for working according to the 8D-method. This is standard in the automotive industri and we are obliged to document according to this method. Has anyone else done this and found best practice for this in IFS? We are thinking of a couple of alternatives: Create one action in the NCR, then create/process one CAPA for this but it doesn´t cover all the 8 steps. Create 8 actions in the NCR to represent the 8 steps in the method. Create CAPA actions for step 3 and 5 in the method if necessary. (It is a lot of steps/administration to handle each action) Create one NCR with one Capa, then create 8 actions in the CAPA.
Community, We come across this error message for certain parts. for example part 1069908, current engineering Rev 2, Inventory Revision is 2. when I am trying to create a new Eng Revision, Rev 3, I got below error. How to fix this without skipping Eng Rev. 3?
In reading the help on two-stage picking, if the checkbox on the site is not checked, IFS should allow single stage picking, which it is not. Our users are still getting a pop up when it’s not checked for our Shipment Types. However, when using one of our shipment types (210) it doesn’t popup at time of picking and I think it’s due to the Source Ref 1, which our other shipment types don’t have. There isn’t much documentation on this field, but I am trying to figure out if other application settings are hindering the ability of this field. Has anyone had experience with this field? If so, can you provide details on why we still get a “two-stage” picking pop up when it’s not checked. Application Base Setup > Enterprise > Site > Site (Sales & Procurement Tab)
IFS Product Structure Components has a field “Qty per Assembly”. This is converted into “Qty per Assembly” on Shop Order Materials. The Shop Order can have a Lot Size and this leads to a “Qty required” on Shop Order Materials. This is OK for UoM PCS, but how would this work with UoM meters? Example: Component UoM = “m” and “Qty per Assembly” = 0,2 m. Lot Size = 5 so my “Qty required” = 1 m, but Shop Order doesn’t need 1 m. It needs 5 x 0,2 m!
I have looked at the closed topic on Availability Control but I still am not able to see who changed the part numbers Availability Control ID.Any help? The logging is turned on but I can’t search with the part number or anything. Would like to see who changed it to the current value.Thank you
Is there a way to create a repair shop order without needing a repair product structure and routing? Repair is a non-standard process. Routings are standard data.In our organization, routings are maintained and controlled by a different group than those that create shop orders. If a special repair PS and Routing are required to create the repair order, this creates inefficiencies in the process of creating the shop order.Please let me know if there are ways to create the repair shop order without creating a repair PS and routing.Thank you for your help!Robin

There are more than one occasions that I have come across that our users define one physical machine in 2 sites expecting to plan shop order operations seamlessly. But this set up sometime leads to very confusing consequences. Example : Company : A Site : X Site : Y Expensive CNC machine is installed in Site X ( defined as a manufacturing work center in Site X as "CNC-X"). But this usually runs under capacity ( lets assume that both sites runs on 8 hr calendar). So The company decides that they can put some shop orders registers in Site Y to be done in the under utilized work center in Site X. Therefore it is decided to define the work center in site Y as " CNC-Y" in IFS. Now lets assume that the manufacturing planner has access to both site X and site Y shop order operations. If you run CRP, since in IFS , CNC is 2 distinct work centers, the capacity available is 8 hr each. Which is not really the case. For both sites , the available hours are 8 in total per day. In such setup p
if the shop order has operation of assemly. how to determin the assembly work hours? we tried to input the work hours in the collum of “labor factor”, the start date is not calculate with it. but the lead time can calculate based on labor factor(when we set it up in “lead time calculation basis”). Dont you think it is a conflict? what would you suggest to build up a shop order with only assembly operations? thanks!
