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.

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.

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. -- This is the BPCS ERP System (BPCS-L) mailing list To post a message email: BPCS-L@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/bpcs-l or email: BPCS-L-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/bpcs-l.
