one can write a query on file kfp and extract the necessary fields for download into excel or using odbc on the output file be interrogated by other tools like crystal.

this is much easier to sort and act on.

    Messages in    BPCS + ERP    LX


Unless they are handled intelligently, exception messages out of BPCS and ERP LX arrive on
a very thick of stack paper. If you've got a large record count in your item master file,
there's so much paper that the useful information becomes invisible.

PaperSaver Exception Report software not only sorts but it also weeds out messages that
aren't worth looking at in the first place. We recently added a new exception message
that points to POs that have excessive order quantities. That very constructive
information isn't available from any BPCS or ERP LX version.

  News release about the new "PO Quantity too high" exception message:

I suggest separate reports based on:
*    Corporate responsibility (shop orders vs. purchase orders) (which
*    Expedite vs. De-expedite vs. Cancel
*    Date math . ignore if it is only a few days off

You can put these reports in a CL structured like BPCS reports . take menu
option, which puts report to JOBQ
We have a user-menu for putting MRP CAP etc. regeneration to JOBQ, which
also includes query reports we interested in, to run after MRP CAP get done.
Launch all this last thing in evening, look at the reports next morning.

This process is straightforward.  Expedite and De-expedite messages are
issued for various type of orders.  Each order type is from a specific BPCS
order file.

They are:

.         Shop Order (FSO)

.         Purchase Order (HPO)

.         Planned Order (KFP)

.         Resupply Order (ECL, where Customer Order is Order Type 9 in ECH)

The MRP Reschedule Date is a field on each of these records.  So, the
Expedite Message occurs when MRP Reschedule Date is before the Due Date (or
Schedule Receive Date for RSO).  De-expedite Message occurs when it is after
these dates.

If the MRP Reschedule Date is all 9's, that is a Cancel Message.

Using Query, you can identify these messages and output them to files which
can then be downloaded to EXCEL.

Please feel free to contact me offline if you have any questions.
