There are a number of files that need to be kept in sync when trying to
remove old part numbers. The best thing would be to write a program that
checks the associated files, reports if the part is still in use and then
removes the part # associated records at the same time. Files to check if the
part is still active are:
ECL (customer orders)
FRT (routing)
KFP (planned order)
KMR (material requirement)
MBM (check both if the item is a parent or a child on a bill)
MPB (check both if the item is a parent or a child on a planning bill)
IPH (physical inventory)
FMA (component requirement on SO)
FSO (shop order)
EIX (customer xref)
It is best to use standard BPCS procedures to remove data from these
files. Example, deleting a bill needs to reset the low level code on the item
master. Once everything has been cleaned up, then the records can by
physically deleted from all the files listed above including the CMF (cost
master) and IIM (item master).
