Is anyone have experience with a windows based printing package called Reform by Fabsoft and printing from BPCS (6.04 and 8.2)?

This approach would provide a finished goods receipt of more than one item (based on a specified % ) and would split the cost of the Shop Order proportionately. You could specify the primary item to have 90% and a Co-product to be 10%, so when that shop order for 100 pieces was reported it would generate two receiving transactions. One for 90 pieces and one for 10 pieces, and the shop order costs would be split, accordingly. Co-products are different from By-products in BPCS in that they have value, where as By-products are items that may be created during manufacturing that either have no value, or may actually cost you money to dispose of them. Good luck. Frederick C. Davy, CPIM, PMP Business Systems Analyst Interface Solution, Inc.

Now the volume has increased, and we have had to use an outside paint shop, so our informal methods are not working at all well. So - my question is - has anyone experience with using BPCS to order components in a base color (for 90% of our output) and cause special paint of the remainder, essentially to order? We have about 7 components that must be painted special, and 8 different colors that repeat and so should be standard options, on about 20 different models. Is there some other way than establishing 7X8X20 or 560 new part numbers, in new bills of material? Dick Bailey MCFA,Inc
