Hi Debra,

Thanks for sharing your experience. Is the recommended PC requirements by
SSA in the
installation instructions sufficient for either MixedMode or full GUI?

Please correct me if my logic is ok or if I'm missing any step for this
install.

I plan to:
1.     Run 2 environments on a single AS/400 i.e two sets of libraries,
        JOBDs, JOBQs, data areas and different set of PC for Clients.
2.     Save and restore my current production BPCS 6.0.02 to my new
        environment.
3.     Run BPCS conversion for full GUI on my new environment and
        make all configuration for JOBDs, JOBQs, PCs etc.
4.     Apply BPCS 6.1.01 to new environment.
5.     Test the new environment for all BPCS modules and confirm results.
6.     Clear all full GUI data in new environment.
7.     Restore saved BPCS 6.0.02 from step 2 above to new environment.
8.     Run BPCS conversion for MixedMode in new environment and
        make all configuration for JOBDs, JOBQs, PCs etc.
9.     Apply BPCS 6.1.01 to new environment.
10.   Test the new environment for all BPCS modules and confirm results.
11.    Make decision to go full GUI or MixedMode.
12.    Apply conversion to PRODUCTION and go live.
