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

One suggestion for approaching your problem would be to use Co-products in 
your B/M's. 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.

[BPCS-L] Paint Variations in Component Parts

                 Until recently our volume of specially painted 
end-product was
low enough that could use informal methods for pulling certain
components for painting with special paint color.  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 
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?
