Since you are in Finance, you also probably aware of Sarbanes Oxley.

99% of BPCS procedures and documentation developed before SOX, and many need revisiting due to that, and a lot not in fact been revisited by all the people who should.

The more we have users without good training in BPCS, the more we have glitches in our data processing that people do not know how to fix, and the temptation is great to resolve by other than SOX-compliant methods. This reality probably impacts Finance more than any other dept.

This is also related to computer security and the enforcement of good business practices.

This sort of topic can also be found in BPCS_L archives, and we can supply additional links.

Tom,
Thank you for the information.  I am securing BPCS information in
preparation of a pending job offer at a local manufacturing concern.
My focus is Accounting/Finance.  I carry a dual major in Accounting/IT
and have always considered it mandatory to keep abreast with the IT
systems that drive the Finance function.  In this world, accountants who
don't know their source systems are apt to "blow things up".

I am very glad to meet your end users and expect to correspond
frequently.  I have already found a repository of end user manuals.
