BPCS Customer Order Entry Speed?
BPC Speed is an Oxymoron here.

Any added features can make process so much slower than base BPCS, that your company may have to hire an extra data entry clerk for each one, so there is a cost benefit complication there. Are the improvements you desire of sufficient value to add to your work force or risk delays in data entry, leading to past due deliveries to customers?

There are numerous 3rd party modifications out there to address this.

Because of ORD500 complexity and my employer not getting AS/Set, it been impractical for me to streamline the process. I wanted to add command key to get to screen without the stuff we not use, and include those we do, so overall less screens to go thru. ORD500 is the largest single BPCS program at 1/3 million bytes, and it calls 10 other programs tied for 2nd place, all of them very heavily invested in soft coding.

I had suggested fax/scan customer original documents that they send us, in which there would be one layout per unique document, fed in through the EDI interface, but we never tried to implement.
What we did implement was modification to INV300 to show if item has price overrides and what the first few entries are, and also a separate pricing rules inquiry. This meant one less place to look in making sure input pricing correct, since we have some errors in our pricing structure & BPCS is extremely hostile to being able to fix that.


Special pricing does allow a discount based on order total value, but I
believe it applies it as a lump sum at the end of the order. If you require each
line is to reflect a price based on total, you may want to look at bracket
code in promos & deals. It allows all items in a group to be totaled, then a
discount applied. Has the benefit of letting you select the items in a group -
perhaps something less than ALL items, maybe even multiple groups/discounts.
Caution, this will not speed up order entry.

Hello all,

BPCS allows the setup of price break levels in special price maintenance.
This price break level is based on the quantity or amount on order line

What we would like to achieve
Basic selling price customer-1 / item-A x.xx euro
Basic selling price customer-1 / item-B y.yy euro

order line 1 aaa item-A
order line 2 bbb item-B

Total order amount, based in customer-1 basic selling price
< 20.000 line prices is basic selling per + 3%
20.000 - 25.000 line price is basic selling price
> 20.000 line price is basic selling price - 3%

Is there a way to determine the line price, based on the total order
amount ?
Is this possible when we implement and setup promotion and deals

Kind regards,

Peter Heeren
