I'm sure you'll get lots of input from folks on the list - but here are several things right off the top of my head.

1. System Parameters (SYS800) - Check for CST being turned ON and review the Inventory and Costing panel for determining what set to use for gl posting and if you are going to cost by facility (this is usually set to YES even if you are not using multiple facilities now for possible future use of multiple facilities).

2. You mention that you may be asked to implement more mfg - which leads me to question whether or not you have BOMs, WCs and Routings presently set up - which should also be set up by facility. If not, you will need to do this in order to perform Cost Roll-Ups. Otherwise all costs would have to be maintained manually thru CST100.

3. For cost roll-up to work for material costs, you need to ensure you have the basis for material costs at the bottom of your BOM entered into CST100 for the set you are rolling. Roll-up then uses this to implode thru the BOM to get materials costs. Also make sure that the bucket you are using for material costs is populated in INV100.

4. Likewise, to get L&OH costs rolled up, you must have WCs with rates (panel 2 of CAP100) and Routings with times.

That's some of the basics.

Use of the various sets and buckets as well as BOM and Routing method codes and their connection and use to cost sets require more detailed explanation. You must also be cautious about Cost load codes and routing basis codes as well as your use of lot size and set up time.

I am on 405 CD & here it is a weekend other than end-fiscal-month, so we do
various BPCS/400 computer housekeeping chores when the co-worker mob is off
the system like backup, shop order purge, check security log, etc. plus I
have some loose ends not yet completed from last end month, where some weird
totals still to check out.

I have placed on a separate menu, the weekend reorganization functions, in
the sequence in which we run them:

SFC990C
ORD990C
SYS990C
INV971C
INV972C
ACR970C
ACR972C
MRP990C

There are some other reorganization functions we run less often than
weekends, and there are some which can only be run at a particular point in
EOM. For example, immediately after INV900, if we have ample time, are not
doing this over a flakey connection like PC or VPN, and it is not a physical
inventory month,
INV973C
INV970C
If these guys are run at any other time, it is an ungodly mess.

Also this weekend, I shall be running SYS120C. I will do it before the shop
order purge, because I have found by experience that without it, the shop
order purge will take 5 hours, but with it, the purge will take 2 hours.
This SYS120 takes about 3/4 of an hour & is also a big help on end fiscal
tasks going faster.

The precise tasks you use to reorganize your BPCS during times when other
people not on the system, will vary with your BPCS version & which
applications are active.

Hi All,

I'm using BPCS 6.1.00
Does anybody know where IWI/WCUSA comes from ..?
I mean which files/ fields have relation with IWI/WCUSA.

I find that BPCS has a program (INV971) to reset WCUSA.
Is this program really needed to run once in a month ?

Thank in advance.
Regards,
- Indah

Thanks for Dick Bailey & Borill for the explanation.

Can I ask another question about "On Order" on screen "Material Status
Inquiry"..?
I get amount "On Order" that I don't know where it comes from.

I checked HPO file ( Purchase Order ) and FSO file ( Shop Order ),
but I didn't find any data for this item number.

Are there any files that affect "On Order" besides HPO and FSO ?

Thanks a lot.

Hi Isaac,

On Order in the INV300 inquiry screen is a global number, so it DOES come from IONOD in the Item Master, and may not display the number you want.

Also, if you are using Resupply Customer orders, these also show up as part of the displayed number, being on order for the ordering facility, in addition to open purchase orders.

subject: [BPCS-L] Implementing Cost Accounting

We are currently running on V4.03 and I have been asked to implement the
Cost Account function of BPCS. We currently have most of the modules
installed, but not necessarily using them to their full potential. Does
any one have any recommendations as to the best approach to implement
costing? Basically, we want to use a standard labor and overhead cost
for the entire year, plus actual material costs.



Are all the set ups necessary in BPCS to do this? I was told, going
forward, we will implement more and more of BPCS manufacturing, but not
right now. I know I can plow through the run manual for Costing, but
I'm hoping I can get some quick input from the community.

Thanks in advance -
