Q&A Discussion of IFS Products for our IFS Employees, Partners and Customers
Hi, we have a combination of component subcontracting (supplier material method) and customer order direct. A finished good X is setup as part type purchased with a BOM containing semifinished good Y. Semi-finished good Y is manufactured internally and sent it to our subcontractor on occation, who has it on stock (remote warehouse - picking location). When we receive a customer order, we send a pegged PO to the subcontractor, who produces the finished good X and sends it directly to the customer (sales part has sourcing option “Primary Supplier Direct”). However, when making “register direct delivery” on the PO, the system only delivers the finished good X. It does not backflush the semifinished good Y at the remote warehouse (eventhough backflush is set up at the product structure). Any input to why or what could be missing? The backflush works fine as long as the sales part is not setup to sourcing option “Primary Supplier Direct”. Is the “register direct delivery” not connected to
Hi, I don't fully understand the date logic in the time-phased supply proposals created by IFS for an end-item (in an engineer-to-order setting). Can you outline the key types of dates (or 'offsetting inputs') that figure within scheduling. From specifying when the user desires said item, to all the subsequent dates that are generated after BoM explosion. The 'tools' at are disposal are IFS Apps 10, namely, MRP that executes 'Infinite Scheduler' and 'APB' (our method to CBS schedule items to reflect 'live' capacity constraints such as the current load at a given work centre). I'll provide a brief description of our current practice and raise questions alongside that. If there's any misuse, do say so. Overview: A 'Required Date' is specified when demand is created, used to say when project 'X' is desired. Does this input need to be constrained by a lead time, whether plausible or not? For instance, can you specify the Required Date for X as 1/1/15? I'm not asking whether the system has
Hi,Please can you provide information on the below issue we are seeing across our estate while rolling out Microsoft Edge.We are using IFS Apps 8.IFS Users use Edge to open IFS with ClickOne and are now seeing this additional pop up: We would rather that a User not be forced each time to go through this step and click Open.Our infrastructure engineers have confirmed that the GPO settings that manage the Microsoft Edge browser are compliant with Microsoft Security Guidelines and have tested to the limit their solutions. Any information would be greatly appreciated.RegardsShaun

Hello everyone, I am a new user of IFS 10 and have few questions regarding the process of supplier invoices and possibilities of automation/time saving. At the current situation, we use "external supplier invoices" to register invoice recipient and make sure there are no "load errors" in the invoice, then we go over to "Final Posting Proposal" to fill out the post accounts, project, product number etc.. Are there any possibility to shorten this process and amount of "mouse clicks" here? For example, I have used other ERP systems before where there was only one page with the whole overview og the invoice. Meaning that you could de the tasks in "external Supplier invoices" and finals posting proposal" in one page. Would like to know if this is possible, or if there are any other ideas/shortcuts you think of that could be useful to shorten this process. Thank you!

Working with the existing LU EngPartRevision, we added some custom fields to extend the LU in a centralized testing environment. After standing up a new development environment, we created the custom fields by exporting an Application Configuration Package (ACP) and importing it into the new environment. The fields validated and imported into an Approved state. When I attempt to publish and synchronize the custom fields, I receive the error “COMPILE_ERROR2: Error during compilation of LU [EngPartRevision]” that looks like it is related to extended the custom view (CFV).

Hi all. I anyone using Handling Units and DESADV EDI? We need to configure a Packing Instruction that has a pallet/base and a cover/lid (with multiple smaller handling units stacked in between). We have added the lid as an Accessory in the Packing Instruction but it does not show up in the DESADV. How should we incorporate it? As a handling unit level along with the base? Are Handling Unit Accessories for internal use only? Thanks in advance. Ged P.
We are having issues with users trying to change their password. We in Apps 10 and we were asked by IFS to navigate to the database object “Change_Password_Dbip_” and grant that to our base functionality permission set. When I go there and try and grant it I RMB and there is no option to grant this. Does anyone know why this is happening?
I am being told that IFS Contract module does not produce a credit when equipment is removed from coverage during a contract billing term and that I need to manually calculate the credit due the customer. Can anyone advise if this is accurate? I find it very hard to believe that a Field Service Contract billing system does not have the functionality to generate a prorated credit for inventory dynamics in a service environment.
