Hi Bill,

We recently did this, i.e., found a way to mass update shop orders into
BPCS 4.05CD.

We ended up utilizing/customizing MRP540 (Release Planned Orders) and
SFC550 (Print Released Orders). Actually, we just ended up copying and
customizing CL SFC550C to accept an in-house work file instead of the
file from MRP540...

To avoid program customization, you may want to look at adding these
requirements to the KOR instead of KMR and running MRP540 and SFC550
(these requirements may already be on the KOR file, if MRP planned for
them). It would be helpful if the parts had a unique planning code...

Hope this helps. You can contact me direct if you like...

Best Regards,

DeeDee Virgei

Subject: [BPCS-L] Mass Creation of Shop Orders

V405CD environment.

Our production control department is looking for a way to upload a large
number of shop order creation data at one time. They will be doing this
likely on a daily basis.

My idea is to load the information: part number and quantity, into one
of the MRP files and then have MRP do the creation logic. My questions
are this:

1) Is there a better way to do it other than into MRP?
2) Which file would I upload to? I'm thinking KMR, but not sure of the
flag setting. I'm pretty sure that a flag value of "F" means that it is
a forecast record.
