We are closing one of our factories. Different portions of the operations are having their files unpopulated in stages so some reports cease to have meaning while others still need to be run for the location that has one foot in the grave. Some BPCS files automatically get cleaned up to remove old story during the course of normal business fiscal operations, while some data will hang around until infinity without MIS attention. I also want to use this opportunity to help me identify old garbage records that accumulate without proper purge, in need of enhancements to fiscal clean ups. Can someone point at a BPCS knowlegebase document of gotchas to watch out, and useful tips & techniques, for when ending a portion of our business? This is like the BPCS implementation poster flow chart in reverse. I'd like to inventory what tools that may already exist to help diagnose what records need to be purged, and actually purge them, to save us re-inventing some wheels. I'm creating some new reports to catch anything overlooked for designated files, with facility granularity periodic count volume of active records still there, because as people quit running certain reports on the old factory, we can begin to have invisibility of data that should have been removed. Some in-house CL programs program-A gathers data to a work member ***** my insert idea ***** program-B report on the data gathered My insert idea is ... if no data there ... abort the process & message user so they know why I was looking for a CL tool to tell me when no data in a work memeber RTVMBRD (Retrieve Member Data) NBRCURRDC (Number Current Records) looks promising I am also tempted to create a message file like QSYSOPR to get this count down type stuff ... we are down to 2,000 customer orders to get properly closed & however many inventory items to transfer or adjust. Instead of sending counts to a report, send them to the message file, so we can see how we are doing.
