Roger, You've done a pretty good job of describing what the MAPICS ISL module does. Additionally, it interfaces with MRP, keeps history and generates manifests.
From the manual:
"ISL/MISL introduces the 'transfer' order. This type of order can be created directly from MRP Review and Approve with release functionality. Or you can directly create and release within the ISL/MISL application. These InterSite transfer orders can be sent to any MAPICS defined planning warehouse. ISL/MISL allows your planning warehouses to define customer/supplier relationships with each other. The number of manufacturing and distribution enterprises that can make use of ISL/MISL is quite large and varied."

The big problem is back orders. Since we do not ship the order, we can't back order. In an ideal world we would have a MAPICS option for an internal order, that we could "process" right from the picklist like any order. EXCEPT, the shipping would create a TW rather than an SA. We do not want to inflate sales with additional SA transactions (thus the transfer). Customer orders and order picklist are a great tool for our shipping personnel to work with. (Today the order is simply removed after the initial shipment, and shipping works from a marked up copy of the picklist to try and satisfy backorders). Any creative schemes to use MAPICS to help us address this situation more effectively?? (It seems like a lot of work, but the best I could come up with was to transfer what we can transfer, then have someone go back into the order and delete the line items that shipped, and change the quantity for partial shipments, leaving the order open until it was satisfied.) Had hoped someone else may have found a better solution? Thanks Roger Blocher TECH International I.S.
