We are on BPCS 405 CD. Do you happen to know if JIT600 620 was available as of BPCS 3.1 ? If so, that is the answer to your needs. The JIT600 screen looks just like SFC600 screen, but it has secondary screens available, to handle components consumed by the shop order, such as material substitutions. If you leave the clock # blank, you get a special team screen to enter actual clock times (not have to convert to decimal) start stop for all the team members. We enter inventory transactions at same time as labor transactions so that if an order has been done piecemeal, the data is still in sync, based on what has been reported. On an earlier version of BPCS, before JIT600 consolidated the labor and inventory reporting, we were able to do the same thing by reporting inventory completed so far, using an INV500 transaction effect that issued component consumption transactions along with the received parts completed so far. Our problem was with proper scrap consumption, since for us that is routing operation sensitive, so we wrote a modification to handle scrap reporting.
We are on BPCS 3.1, and I believe we need to change our procedures on processing shop orders to improve inventory accuracy. Currently, we may have a shop order for 100 units of which only 50 may be complete. The other 50 might wait for another week or two before they are complete. At this time, we don't process the shop order complete until all 100 are finished. This results in inventory inaccuracies on the component parts. Is there any way to process the order for the partial quantity, and still keep that shop order open without having to issue a new shop order? All suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!
