It is too hot.

I do not do it myself but my co-workers do it in a matter of seconds.
Oh yes we BPCS 405 CD and we have modified stuff but not this.
We did have some education from the consultants that helped with our last
migration, but the staff now doing the work were not the same people who
got the training from the consultants.
We also have some pretty good BPCS manuals.

When the raw materials arrive, the stock room person does a transaction to
receive it against the PO.  I not remember off hand what type transaction
that is ... they use PUR550 I think.
We have one person doing this per factory.  That person has a LOT of other

When the invoice arrives, the accounting department does a transaction to
record the cost.  That is a C transaction.  There is one person doing this
for the whole company.  That person has a LOT of other duties.

It does not matter which comes first.
We don't pay until the stuff is in agreement.
There is some report listing items that are not in agreement.
We use a lot of the standard BPCS reports, and have also added a few
thousand Query/400 supplements.
It may be that the nature of our business is such that we are dealing with
competent vendors, who are so good at what they do that it is normal to
have stuff in agreement.

They have never come complaining to me that there is some problem with this
aspect of the software in need of enhancement.  We have had some glitches
with ACP500 screens and some peripheral report needs.
