Hi,

The API in question had changed to allow either the new or old parms
starting at V5R1 (they were listed as 2 new optional parameters for
CCSID and length). V5R2 did not require them, but the memo to users
mentioned a 'future release' would require them. The BMR to support this
change was ready before V5R3 was released.

I don't know if Client/Access uses this API, but if it does use it, then
IBM certainly would have known about this planned change internally a
couple of releases ago and due to their design review procedures, would
have made their software compatible before V5R3 forced you to use the
new parameters. Contact IBM if you have questions about a particular
level of Client/Access.

Thanks,

Currently we're using COM and CEA, but the rest is mixed mode, i.e.
green screen emulation using client access.
Sorry for asking the daft question, but is client access ok or is it
also affected by this OS issue?

Thanks,
Paul

Hello

Yes, you have to apply that if you use V6 on V5R3 (and higher) with BPCS
Client server and/or CEA.

That because the deamon server for communication use an IBM
communication API that has been changed for nr of parameter.

That BMR contains the BPCS server part to allow communication with new
parm list.

If you use mix mode only, you do not need.

Thanks

Hi all,

We're planning on moving to a new iseries later this year and I've heard
that a BMR (No.67665) has to be applied to BPCS as it causes problems
with the login process.
It doesn't affect green screen, but does affect client/server gui and
web interfaces.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Thanks,
Paul

Confirmed.

You are affected, as you use CEA.

Stephen

So you now have satisfactory solution for MRP management of this
situation.
You may still have an issue with pricing.

I advise against changing list price, or special pricing to something
other than you want for the future. In ORD500 you can change price of
an individual shipment line to what is desired for that shipment, and
not affect any future shipments with that price.

The simplest solution might be a note to accounting that after
everything has been shipped to customer and billed normally with BIL500,
to do a BIL600 Billing Adjustment, which can be negative or positive, to
back out any $ that got over-billed. You might want to do a test of
BIL600 to make sure you can do what is desired there.

We are also 405 CD.

Something we do that may be a helpful idea for you.
We have created a dummy non-MRP item called MISCELANEOUS which has an
item class of 11 which is ordinarily used for special charges like
expedite fees.

We then create an ORD500 line with quantity one of this item, price or
no price, notes or no notes, to be picked by shipping at same time as
completion of some complex customer order(s) so that a "whole story"
ends up on final customer invoice. We do this separately because there
may be a whole bunch of shipments involved in some complex situation,
then when it is all completed, then and only then we want explanation on
billing. Afterwards we inventory adjust to remove results of "shipping
out" a non-existent item.

We have also used special lines, but have no control over when they get
billed.
Key them into ORD500, then the next time we do billing, there they are.

By using dummy item MISCELANEOUS, we get the "special charge" data into
our orders when we have all the facts, and we control which billing
cycle they are to go onto, typically same one as the relevant items
actually getting shipped to customer.

We also have a dummy item VOID which comes in useful during physical
inventory, when some auditor not like us deleting physical inventory
tags, instead we make them item VOID with quantity zero, so they all
show up same place on some reports.

Al Macintyre

Al,

Thanks for your input.

We are thinking the cleanest way to get what we want is in line with
your third suggestion of creating a new top level part without the
subcomponent and having two orders that comprise the entire top level
part.

You can enter a credit quantity in customer orders by using an RMA.
You can also experiment with a negative number in safety stock.

You can copy engineering of the top item with a slight change,
discontinuing the sub-component involved, where (if you have room in
item #) add a character at the end (we use R for repair for this
purpose), or a character at the beginning (we use exclamation point to
force certain items to the front of our lists of items).

Hello All,



We have a situation where a customer has placed an order for
a top level
item, but only wants a subcomponent shipped now for
fabrication
purposes, and then wants the remainder in approximately two
months. For
pricing reasons, the order cannot be separated into the
subcomponents.
We need to be able to show demand in the system for the
component that
will ship early, and be able to schedule the remaining parts
for later
production. We need to be able to control MRP messages for
purchasing
and production.



One work around we have thought of is to place an order for
the
subcomponent to create the initial demand, then place a
second order
later for the top level item when it is needed, issuing a
credit for the
first order. The problem is in the second order, trying to
tell the
system we want the top level without the subcomponent. On
the Order
Entry screen (ORD500), we tried to enter the top level item
and then
enter a negative quantity for the subcomponent. We receive
an error
that "Quantity ordered cannot be less than zero."



We are running BPCS 4.05 CD



Any input or ideas would be greatly appreciated,



Stephen
