Is the SSA module you are questioning the BPCS WHM module introduced in
one of the version 6 releases? Or the SSA Whs Boss
Module that SSA purchased from CA about 5 years ago ~that I think works
with modules as far back as 4.05 CD?
One product (not SSA) that I looked at last year (recommended by other
users in this group) was OTTO by Systems Plus. It isn't exactly a
warehouse management module, but I believe w/b a big help to your
company in using shop floor the way it should be used. I did not move
forward w/ this product yet, due to some shop floor discipline issues on
my end, but am still considering it... If interested, website is

Is anyone using the Warehouse Management module in V6.00.04? If so, can
you give me some insight on its actual capabilities?
We have not used shop floor control in the way that it SHOULD be used.
We have used BPCS so far to inform BPCS of the production that has
occurred instead of allowing BPCS to drive the process. I am currently
looking at building applications to allow users to receive small parts
against purchase orders, put away items into the warehouse, move items
in the warehouse, and pick items for delivery to the production floor,
all to fit on screen dimensions for a scanner. I would much rather
modify existing applications, if they work right, instead of building my
I have been told by, then SSA employees, that the WHM module isn't all
that and they would not recommend using it.
