One of the reasons for our "fix it" programs is that with personnel
turnover, there is risk that not everyone will remember all the rules for
setting up all different kinds of items, so we can use "fix it" programs to
force rules such as
* horizon days for end items
* lead times for different combinations of facility and item type
* master scheduled end items so customer orders get processed by MRP
* MPS demand code - populate "S" when missing
* order planning - populate "A" when missing
* planner updates based on parent customer
* WIP tracking no longer desired, clear from all items
* yield on certain classes of items, because management thinks scrap is
under-reported

Dan,

Thanks much! Yes, it is warehouse 10 for these end items in CIC - which is
really incorrect, but was never "used" before. The SYS800 parm is set to 10,
but the CIC should override that when changed to 30 for each end item
number.

I hope that you changed the manufactured flag in item type maintenance and
not via a system utility like DFU. ALL updates should be performed via the
standard BPCS maintenance programs.

In the MRP Planning file (CIC) (MRP140 - what is the default warehouse for
all of your end items. The default warehouse should be where you want the
shop orders released to. Also check your MRP SYS800 parms it might be set
to warehouse 10 there also.

Hope this helps.

We have coded our End Items as item type = E. We did not use shop orders
before - for the final assembly of the end items in the our warehouse 30 (we
have warehouse 10, 20, and 30). I see in the ZPA file that the TPMFG flag
for the E Item Types was set to "N" which caused the error message "This
item is not a manufactured item type" when I tried to release it to a Shop
Order in MRP540. We are looking into creating Shop orders now for our
warehouse 30 as well.

I then changed the ZPA value for Item Type "E" to show manufactured - TPMFG
= "Y". Now I see them in MRP540 and can release them. The only problem I
see is that the warehouse defaulted to 10, and it should be 30.

Do you see any other issues which I may create by changing the system this
way?

TIA,
Don
