>>  Hi
>>  We are running version 6.002 BPCS CS.
>>  My company produces milk and other just in time dairy products.  At any
>>  given point in the day we may be taking orders and producing milk with
'no
>>  inventory'.  The order program is from a third party vendor with an
>>  interface written to affect inventories as items are ordered, then
picked
>>  and then sold.
>>  Here is the problem:  we have tried to do cycle counting but once an
order
>>  is ready to be picked it is immediately relieved from the BPCS inventory
>>  total.  We may have the product in the cooler when the count was taken,
but
>>  by the time we get ready to key  in  the count, 400 transactions have
>>  occured.  If you use one step cycle counting it doesn't total up all the
>>  transactions for you and we only have a one hour window to get these
keyed
>>  into the system.  Our clerks don't have time to recalculate the count
for
>>  each and every item.  Has anyone used a different transaction or
>>  modified/created a new cycle counting program?  What I think the cycle

count
>>  sheet was printed and let me work toward that balance not the balance at
>the
>>  time I key the count in.
>>  Any recommendations.  This is seriously hampering our efforts to expand
our
