I would like to think that, as a consultant, I can ask for help with areas
of BPCS that I am unsure of but, in turn, would then be able to offer
expertise in areas I do know a little about.

We all have a choice as to whether we reply to requests for 'help' on the
BPCS list.  It really is a personal thing but I think it should also work
both ways!
