Al Mac ,
  Thank u for the details.I could not find any detail
archieve on this topic.The ver of BPCS is 6.1 and its
an engineering industry which requires the accuracy at
the inventory levels, forecasting and customer order
handling.But the users can not enter the details at
sho floor level so planning to skip it with some trade
off in the accuracy.

Mand.

If you manufacture anything, how do you plan to record activity on what you make?


If users cannot enter shop floor details, that is a management decision, not a BPCS feature.
What we do is issue heavily modified shop floor documents, in which the shop floor personnel fill in some boxes, then the data is keyed in by a clerical person. I believe bar coded input would be better all around, but I have a minority view on this. Of course our approach is more flexible. Over time we have heavily modified how we use the tickets to track what kinds of activity.


You might check the archives on the Performance Module.
We not using it.
It has to do with tracking delivery on-time.
You think you know how long it will take to manufacture something.
You think you can depend on vendors.
But we are in a competitive business, we need to know how well we are delivering relative to promises, and how well people are delivering to us.
