If you can find the on-line BPCS documentation, BPCS supposedly supports PROCESS as well as discrete items, but I don't know if you can do both at the same time in the same BPCS environment, which means you may need custom programs to transfer data between them (the discrete items environment and the process one). In 405 CD, BPCS documentation was located in a file called BPCSDOC, where each member was documentation for a different module of BPCS. Start with SSARUN*. I accessed via PDM. BPCS front door needed a person to have SSA or SYS security, to have access to the DOC menu. Warehouse in another facility via DRP also requires a part #. Requirements entered in one facility trigger orders to satisfy them in the other one, with transactions across facility. My former day job used phantom components to identify engineering changes, so that an item's history showed up on all BOM inquiry & reports. We were not able to block this from showing up on shop orders, although the requirements were quantity zero. We also had a special work center to handle outside operations, with less hassle than using the one which came with BPCS. Our customer service dept did not like BPCS special charges facility, so they used dummy item classes in both invoicing and credit memos, triggering bogus inventory in need of adjustments. Our engineers had a set of bogus parts in routing templates, which were re-used infinite times, without creating any bogus inventory.

I realize I could use a Transfer in the BOM, but that requires a part#. We are trying to get away from creating new part #s unnecessarily. If I use outside processing, It requires a part# again, and also a lot of processes. Does anyone know a way to create a intercompany PROCESS without creating a part#?
