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.
Hello, I am attempting to setup volume storage on Inventory Locations and define qty per volume on Inventory Parts, I have configured two bins with 20 and 25 bin values. My assumption is that the total storage between the two bins would be 45. However, it appears to only be 25 max. With both locations empty, if I attempt to move 20 units (I've setup the part for 1 pc = 1 volume), the system states that I can only put 5 units into F2.I’ve verified this by moving a total of 25 units into the locations. I believe I’m not understanding the setup of this functionality in IFS, and the help does not seem to clarify how exactly this should work. Any guidance on the proper setup would be greatly appreciated.
Hello, I have not found much detail on this functionality, but I am hoping there is a way to accomplish this. In many instances, we may have a single PO with multiple receipts against it. In the event we need to perform a return of defective material to the Supplier, it appears only 1 MRB case can be created against 1 receipt. If the total returned qty is spread across multiple Receipts, can they be combined into one Receipt that the MRB case can be opened against? Receipt 1 - 50 pcsReceipt 2 - 25 pcsTotal qty needed to be returned to Supplier - 75. Ideally, 1 MRB case is opened for the total qty, and is attached to both Receipts. The only work around I have found is to move the material to an MRB Inventory Location and open an MRB case against that amount. This unfortunately disconnects the process and you are logically managing the inspection/disposition of the materials. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Hello, I am attempting to configure the History Logging to capture when Components are deleted from a Product Structure. I have enabled the delete tracking on Component Part, but that still does not appear to be capturing the deletion. Is there a way to log this action using the History logging? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Hello, We have recently turned over our HR department. A new member is attempting to use the termination process in IFS apps 10. They have the same Permission Set access, however, they receive the following error message when attempting to complete the termination wizard. I have not found anything in the help that indicates where this access needs configured. Any guidance would be appreciated!
Hello, I am looking into streamlining the current manufactured Inventory Part creation process. Today, our Engineering department uses the Copy Part feature to create a new mfg Inventory Part. Unfortunately, while this process is quick, it has lead to issues where parameters are set incorrect (Inventory Part record form). Most of the time, this is due to the associate forgetting to change a planning parameter, or general part information. I did find the New Part Assistant wizard, but it appears to only work for Purchased Parts and Non-Inventory Sales Parts.I was hoping a wizard similar to the NPA would exist to quickly enter an Inventory Part. I have not found anything, and was curious what other methods may be available to enter the basic data elements needed to start a new manufactured Inventory Part record.
Hello all, I am trying to find a way to prevent a Shop Order Operation step from closing automatically in the event there is a failed QA analysis confirmed. I believe a Subtask could be used, but it appears they cannot be attached based on an event. I do not want to require approvals for any Shop Order Operation, only those with a failed analysis. In IFS, is it possible to trigger any sort of event to require a sign off in the event an analysis is confirmed with a failure/out of spec? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Hello, I have configured a Subtask with an Inspection Sign Off requirement and qualification profile. I have also set the Site to consider qualifications. However, any account is still able to complete this sign off from the SFWB. The help in IFS seems to indicate this is all that is needed to perform a security check and prevent unqualified accounts from completing the sign off. Is there an additional item that must be configured to activate this functionality? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
Hi All, During our implementation we created custom Move Tickets and Barcode labels to identify product on our Shop Floor. The reports and labels essentially contain the Part Number, Description, Revision, Qty, Operation Sequence, Next Operation Sequence, Work Center, and Shop Order number. We have the PN and SO barcoded on the reports as well. Ideally, if possible, i would like to make use of the standard IFS warehouse labeling reports. However, it appears that the only options would be to print the Shop Order Reports (Work Instruction Report, Shop Order Report). My question is - are these the only reports in IFS that can be used to label product that is being produced? How would work in progress be labeled to indicate where the next WC location the material should be taken to for additional processing? Any guidance would be appreciated.
Hello all, I am attempting to resolve an issue related to MRB cases for a single part. Currently, we have an MRB Inventory Location that material is moved to prior to the creation of an MRB Case. The issue I have is that in multiple instances, the same parts may require two MRB cases for nonconformance is. Below is an example of the process.: 100 parts moved to MRB location (PN 12345)50 of the 100 are related to nonconformance - Feature Size50 of the 100 are related to nonconformance - Surface Contamination Today, I can only create one MRB case for the entire 100. I must then make notes in the case to outline that there are actually two different reasons for containment of the parts. This also lead to labeling confusion as which parts have the specific nonconformance. Ideally, if you could simply create two MRB cases, one for each nonconformance, this would allow for correct labeling and management of the disposition for each group of 50 parts. The only workaround for this that I have
Hello all, Is it possible in IFS (10) to have the Lot Size of a shop order increase in the event that the reported qty from Shop Floor Workbench exceeds the original Lot Size amount? Often times we over run a coil fed job, which will result in the original Lot Size not matching the actual reported qty (Lot Size - 1000, actual completed qty 1230). Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Hi All, I am looking to setup an alert to notify a member of our planning team when the on hand inventory of a part drops to zero. My thought was to setup an event action, but I believe I would then need to configure multiple event actions for each part. Is there a way to setup the event or another feature in IFS that could be used to notify someone in the event the on hand inventory level is zero? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.,
Hello All, I’m attempting to grant access to a user to view the contents of Database Task Chains in IFS 10. I’ve granted access on the Permission Set, and the user can now create database chains, however, they are unable to view any chains they have created. The table is blank when they attempt to populate it. I am able to view the contents, but I have the IFSAPP full grants. I’m assuming there is another area the user needs access to, but I do not see anything in the help that indicates what needs grants. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hello all, I have noticed that I am not able to modify the CO Priority field in IFS. I have full access, and according to the help, this field should be able to be changed at any point without impact to anything else in the system. I’m sure it is something basic I am missing, but I cannot find anything in the help section that covers changing this value. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hello, I am wondering if there is a way to configure the IFS client to automatically login with a supplied user account and password? Currently, we have around 80 shop floor terminals across our manufacturing facilities. An issue I’ve seen is that in the event of a power outage, all of the SF terminals at the Site must be manually logged back in. I have been able to automate up to the point where I have the PCs automatically login to the Windows environment and launch IFS, but I have not been able to figure out how to pass credentials through and execute the actual login. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Hi all, I am new to the cost calculations in IFS, and I am hoping for some guidance. Essentially, i would like to input “projected” purchase part costs to see the impact it would have on the manufactured component. I am trying to use Cost Set 3 (latest purchase price) to input a new value. I was reviewing the Cost Set Est Mtrl Cost field and assumed I could use that to set a new projected cost of the purchase part. However, when I set that value and run cost calculations I do not see the new value. As an example, the purchase part current cost is $.50. I would like to simulate the cost going to $2.00I am unsure how to update Cost Set 3 to reflect the esteemed mtrl cost of $2. I believe this would also help when using the Estimating module. If I can build an estimate using the project purchase part cost, this would allow for more accurate cost Estimating for future work. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
Hello, Currently, when we transition a Buyer or Planner out, a Find and Replace is done to locate and update all PP, IP, Supplier records with the new individual. I thought in IFS Apps 10, there was a way to perform a mass change to a new Buyer/Planner. However, I have not been able to find anything in the help section. Does this functionality currently exist? Thank you!
Hello all, I have been reviewing the purchase part price and I am wondering if there is a way to see the prior pricing for a given purchased parted? Part Cost History does not contain this information. I believe we make too many changes to turn on History logging for that field. Currently, our Purchasing group will update the Supplier for Purchase Part record when we receiving new pricing from a supplier. I’m hoping this historical information is stored somewhere that I am not currently aware of. Any guidance would be appreciated!
Hello, I have noticed an issue regarding the Estimating module that I do not understand. It appears that when bringing in an Existing Inventory Part and running a Calculate on the Estimate, the unit cost does not match the Part Cost in IFS. Sometimes it is off a few cents, others it can be more than $1. Below is a screen shot of a single Routing Op step part, in a single Site, with a basic Product Structure. Running Calculate on the Estimate shows a difference in the total cost:The Routing and Product Structures all match in the Estimate. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
Hi All, I am attempting to prevent a user from over receiving a shop order qty that is greater than the completed qty on the operation steps. I have tried using Milestone Operation (on the first Op step) and also tried setting Operation Over Report to Not Allowed. However, I am still able to shop order receive over the amount that has been reported on the actual operation steps. Is there a way in IFS to prevent this behavior? Thank you!
Hello, Our technicians have begun reporting an error message when closing a Work Order, or attempting to clock into a newly created one. No changes have been made to the Resources themselves. The only change to the system was an update to UPD 12 (apps 10). Any guidance would be greatly appreciated! They are all set to use the HR calendar:
Hello, I am seeing an issue where a user cannot reject an approval routing step. They receive a message stating that Foundation 1 user does not exist. The message is referencing their email address. There are no event actions tied to this, so I am not sure what is creating this error. He is able to Approve without issue. Any guidance would be appreciated!
Hello All, I am attempting to test DDMRP in IFS Apps 10. I have selected a component part in a Product Structure that I would like to enable it on. I have changed the Planning Method to H and on the Buffer Part Attributes I am attempting to run Calculate Buffer Part Attributes. However, I am receiving the following error message: Server error messages:7624f80a-ff2e-4264-8164-65ede32a163cIfs.Fnd.FndSystemException: Unexpected error while calling server method AccessPlsql/Invoke ---> Ifs.Fnd.FndServerFaultException: ORA-01722: invalid numberFailed executing statement (ORA-01722: invalid numberORA-06512: at line 14ORA-06512: at "IFSAPP.MANUF_STRUCTURE_API", line 5735ORA-06512: at "IFSAPP.MANUF_STRUCTURE_API", line 5756ORA-06512: at "IFSAPP.MANUF_STRUCTURE_API", line 5766ORA-06512: at "IFSAPP.DDMRP_BUFFER_PART_ATTRIB_API", line 2857ORA-06512: at "IFSAPP.DDMRP_BUFFER_PART_ATTRIB_API", line 2877ORA-06512: at line 7) at Ifs.Fnd.AccessProvider.FndConnection.ParseErrorHeader(FndBuffer buff
Hello, I have noticed some system behavior that is causing issues for us when users are reporting component scrap. On the Report Component Scrap screen in IFS, it appears that a user can simply type any value into the Scrap Reason field and save the record. This is problematic, as users are reporting scrap and typing in random numbers, which do not help identify the cause of the scrap. The LOV for Scrapping Causes is there and can be accessed. Is there a way to prevent free text entry into this field, similar to how the normal scrap action prevents this?Normal scrapping process will not allow this behavior:
Hello All, I am curious if it is possible to script a cost value update from one site to another? Currently we have a production site and an estimating site. The estimating site has a copy of our component parts, which we use to create customer quotations. The issue we face is that part 12345 in the production site may change from $5 to $7, but the PN 12345 in the estimating site is not updated, unless the user manually updates the cost. Is it possible to create a scheduled task to routinely perform an update from the production to estimating to keep the costs identical? Thank you!
