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.

Hello all,

We are on BPCS 6.0.02 PLF January Cumulative PTF with many BMR's on top of
that.

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?

Sincerely,

Chris Ertz
