Hi Tim,

With our solution the picked stock is Transferred to the Shipping location
along with its associated allocation(s) so the stock availability in the
rack is accurate and Cycle Counts do not have to take into account any
picked but not confirmed orders. Packing Notes, Pallet Manifests, Delivery
Notes can then be printed in multi-languages if required and the Pick
Confirm ('B' Transaction, updating COGS) done either for the whole shipment
as the transport arrives or as each pallet is loaded if utilising the Load
Confirmation option. The 'B' transaction is posted against the Shipping
location but the 'T'ransfer provides traceability as to which location it
was picked from.

Best Regards

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

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.
