The MAPICS Affiliate in South Carolina, Progressive Systems Inc, has a great product MMC that does this very thing. It is a better alternative than ISL because it also handles shipments between financial divisions. It has vendor drop ship capabilities and utilizes standard COM and PUR, so your shipping and receiving personal don't have to jump from module to module and learn new processes. -----Original Message----- From: mapics-l-bounces+dmorrison=simonds.cc@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:mapics-l-bounces+dmorrison=simonds.cc@xxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Roger.Blocher@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, September 27, 2006 1:51 PM To: MAPICS ERP System Discussion Subject: [MAPICS-L] Creating and processing "internal" customer orders(warehouse to warehouse) "Today" we enter an order in COM for items to be transferred to another warehouse, but instead of shipping the order, we do a warehouse transfer to move the items. 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.
