[BPCS-L] 3 way mismatch

   We are 405 CD mixed mode on V5R1 AS/400 model 170.

   Recently I was tasked with helping reconcile "unvouchered payables" 
   we have received raw material but not yet been vendor invoiced.  I am
   finding lots of problems, wondering how other BPCS places deal with 
   stuff.   The last time I had any formal education in accounting, that 
   maybe 45 years ago.

   We have a General Ledger Account to track this total which never agrees
   with PUR210 total.  These two are off by $ 3 k one day, $ 12 k the next
   (out of grand total around $ 120 k).  We use standard cost, summarize
   inventory to GL.  Our stocking UM is same as selling and purchasing. We
   are multi-facility.

   PUR210 "standard cost" times uncosted quantity equals "extended" NOT
   always but extended is correct (agrees with CST300) more often than 
   cost does.  I tried to dig into the logic to figure out what it is 
doing &
   seems to me it starts with premise that facility costs are to be 

   We have not modified PUR210, but I have a clone PUR210B sequencing the
   report by vendor name, and other readability enhancements.

   As of tonite's input to GL,
   The "corrected" totals (based on CST300 math) are $ 2,827.19 below the
   PUR210 vanilla totals of extended cost.  The GL balance is between the

   I find a few cases of data entry error & try to fix, using negative U & 
   to back out what was done wrong, notifying relevant persons with item 
#s I
   fixed why, but when a PO line is completed, BPCS won't accept a
   correction, so I use A to correct the inventory, which means General
   Ledger stays off by the el typo.  Can a reason code be added to "A" for
   this kind of scenario to get G/L right?

   New items are typically uncosted until after a successful 3 way match
   completion, then we make standard cost a copy of the actual.  This 
   the purchasing process went into Gen Led at zero cost inventory, with
   material variance through the roof.  It seems to me unreasonable burden 
   intercept A/P invoices on items whose standard cost is zero, do the 
   ACP500 math manually to get standard cost fixed, then go ahead and 
   the invoices.
