Hi Don,

Eniac, a Dutch Infor partner, has developed a BPCS add-on called Intercompany+. This add-on increases your workload on intercompany transactions between your final assemby and sub-assembly facilities with more then 50%!

I can sent you some information about intercompany+ if you want.

Regards,
Harold Swaanen
