Then I would suggest the following:

1. Look at implementing Warehouse Mobility.  In warehouse mobility we have the ability to stage orders rather that actually ship them.
2. Staging the orders would encompass a simple transfer of the inventory from its main allocated stocking location to an allocated staged location.
3. Then when the order is actually ready to be shipped you would then pick them via warehouse mobility which creates a special "ready to ship" file.
4. The use the warehouse mobility pick confirmation transaction and the 'B's" are generated along with all of the normal printed documentation based upon the confirmation order life picking cycle step

Thanks for your answer, Dan.

What we really need is a double-edged transaction that at pick confirm time, the inventory gets relieved and the COGS account does not get hit at that time.  Then when the shipment is invoiced, the COGS account gets the hit.  It sometimes takes days between when the order is picked confirmed and it is actually shipped.  At least this is how our Finance department would like it to work.

Best regards,

Timothy J Knoebel, Sr. iSeries/BPCS Administrator

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.
