Tim,

Unfortunately most barcode solutions including Infor's Warehouse Mobility utilize base BPCS/LX programs and the built in customer order life cycle steps - so the only way to satisfy your finance's request is to enhance the order life cycle step which is not a trivial task.  Older versions of BPCS prior to version 4 used to do the 'B' transaction at the time of invoicing and there was a lot of kick back from the user community to relieve inventory at the time of shipping rather than Invoicing.

Hi Tim,

The brief answers to your questions are:-

1.	No an order cannot be unconfirmed after Pick Confirm as the order
line and stock has already been reduced. The only way back is a Credit Note and Adjustment to put the stock back.

2.	No the 'B' Transaction is posted at Pick Confirm whether you're
using Ship Confirm or not.

3.	Yes numerous other BPCS users have had the same problem. Without
customizing BPCS the most effective resolution is to utilise a bar-coding and scanning solution which controls the picking process and can generate the 'B' transaction as late in the process as you wish, even on loading pallets onto transport. Visit www.aidc-solutions.co.uk or www.transitionworksoftware.com for bar-coding solutions which are fully integrated with BPCS.

Subject: [BPCS-L] BPCS 6.1 - Switch from Pick Confirm to Ship Confirm

We are on BPCS 6.1 and currently use pick confirm as the last step before invoicing.  Our Finance department has an issue with this because the 'B'
transaction is generated at pick confirm.  They would like the 'B'
transaction to be generated at invoicing instead of pick confirm.  The would accept the 'B' transaction being generated at ship confirm, which will be closer to invoicing than pick confirm.  I know about changing the order class code to '5' to activate the ship confirm function.  Some questions:

1.       Can an order be unconfirmed once it is pick confirmed?  For some
unexplainable reason, our shipping department continues to pick confirm order lines that we don't have some or all of the item ordered.

2.       Can the 'B' transaction be generated at ship confirm time instead
of pick confirm time without customization?

3.       Has anyone else run into this issue and if so, how did you resolve
it?


Best regards,
