We cloned many BPCS shop paperwork reports & came up with our own versions.

For example, SFC230 the dispatch report groups
1. orders started
2. orders ready to start on
3. orders in imminent transit (because previous operation may be getting some done(

We replaced that grouping
1. orders that MRP says to cancel the paperwork ... please find it and stop production
2. orders that are past due
3. orders not yet past due
sequence within each group by item description and operation description, grouping by similarity of product to minimize setup
use MRP date when MRP need sooner than manual date, otherwise use manual date

Each factory dept has a different layout variant ... in some cases we sort by info embedded within various description fields, that are more critical to certain operations

e.g. Final Assembly is grouped by customer the parts are for, since we have different factory group leaders handling different customers model lines

Statistics (counts) on last page to tear off & gie factory manager ... the work to be done ... #s of certain kinds of item classes that we need to make, for example, date range of the data here

Al, once again, I will take a hard look at this. It sounds like we are
quite similar to you in complexity. Much appreciated!

Thanks,
Don C.
