I believe the restriction is 9 characters and not 8. You can use 10 character workstation names as long as first 9 are unique. BPCS prefixes workstation name with letter "Q" to generate workstation data area. If more than one workstation has the same first 9 letters they will be sharing the same OUTQ and JOBQ settings, which in some shops is not a problem. As far as workstation specific processes such as Shop Order release, Pick Confirm, Billing etc. having 10 characters workstation name is not a problem. Hope this helps.

I know there is a restriction on the length of display device names to a length of 8. My boss has asked me to find a way to allow 10 character device names with the version of BPCS our company is currently on. I can not shorten the device name. That is not an option. (That is what I am currently doing.) What would I neet to change in order to make the software work correctly? We are considering upgrading to V8. Does V8 support 10 character device names?
