Many BPCS programs check the "Y" chart then function different ways depending on which "Y" flag is on. It is like the Transaction Effects File, except there are some bugs in BPCS. We changed some transaction effects to fix a problem, except the problem is still happening.

You might want to review the documentation on DRP.
There is a menu DOC, but what we do is use WRKMBRPDM vs. file BPCSDOC in library list, then position to SSARUN. Before considering 6-print, check option 8 to see how big it is (# print lines).

When you go thru SYS800, you may wish to screen print each for multi-manager review. There may be settings that were appropriate to one facility, that may need rethinking with many. Before changing any other settings, someone should review the relevant documentation to comprehend the implications.

Assuming someone in your company can find the original contract, there was no one standard way it was written ... different rules for different companies ... then when the contracts got amended, there were different ways that happened.

Al,

Yes, I see what you are saying. Looks like I can just put a "Y" there
and move on with the DRP - I'm sure that was built into the contract
some time back.

There are probably at least a dozen or so methods to accomplish what we
need. I will probably have to just keep trying until we find the
clearest and most effective method for our company.

Thanks,
Don

DRP is probably "installed" and only needs to be "activated."

There is a menu SYS, which you can only get into if you are a BPCS
Security Officer. There has to be one because it is needed to adjust
who can get into what stuff, which typically happens when you have
turnover of personnel or duties.

The issue is if you know how to get into a BPCS Security officer to run
SYS800 to add DRP to the list of modules you run, and if you are allowed
to do so, under your contract with Infor. A related issue is whether
some former IT person deleted software you not using, in the interests
of saving disk space.

Due to Infor pricing and other reasons, we are doing inter-facility via
end runs around DRP. For example, we used to receive inter-facility
same way as outside vendor, and run a program to do a mass update of
Resupply Orders, but now do a combination of inventory adjustments and
repair messed up costs.

When you get to menu SYS, note other stuff there, such as the setting up
of the new facilities.

When you run SYS800, basically do not change anything on any screen
except the one that lists the application modules with a "Y" (yes) on
this system.

Engineering files (Routings, Bill of Materials, Item Notes) and Orders
(Customer, Shop, Purchase) have to be by facility. You also need to
manage costs.

I suggest you review your # systems, and come up with one like we did,
that clearly identifies to everyone when something is in which facility.
We have first character identifying facility for: warehouses, work
centers, departments, profit centers, and incorporated that # system
into customer vendor of each other.

We also do not have BPCS maintenance with Infor because of its extreme
expense, and when we left it with SSA GT extreme poor performance for
405 CD non-technical managers.

There are alternative BPCS tech support places out there. We use a
great one.

system.
