  Thank u for the details.I could not find any detail

sho floor level so planning to skip it with some trade

Hi Mand,

Just a word of caution, strictly my opinion: The kinds of things that SFC
keeps track of are important. There is a significant probability that

solutions supporting critical processes. That's a real problem to support
from an IT perspective. (Lot Control can be a particular area of concern)

I suggest that the idea that the users cannot enter the data might be a very
profitable idea to challenge as you implement. Users WILL track the data
they need. Doing it within BPCS can give you the discipline to wind up with

Again, this is strictly my opinion, based upon my own experiance and
