Dear Timothy J Knoebel
There are many ways to do this

1. MRP/DRP

But if this is needed for Drop Shipment then in Lx, you have a flag in item
master that says create PO when Shop Order is created. You can create shop
order automatically with customer order.

If you are not on support with Infor then best way to do is using customized
program.

Regards,

subject: [BPCS-L] Create PO from SO

We are running V6.1 and I got the request to investigate creating a purchase
order from a sales order. We have a Hong Kong division that is doing a lot
of manual work creating drop ship POs from customer orders.

subject: Re: [BPCS-L] Create PO from SO

There were several ways this could be done, for selected items, on 405 CD,
which I assume may still be supported on later BPCS versions.

DRP is conceptually like MRP.
Where MRP is used to create PO (Purchase Order) and SO (Shop Order) to
satisfy CO (Customer Order) within the same division, or create PO to get
material needed for SO components.
DRP adds RO (Resupply Order) to the mix across divisions, perhaps what you
call drop ship orders.

Also, just as MRP can be used to launch 100% of the PO and SO orders needed
to satisfy CO and other requirements, but won't work right if there are any
errors in engineering, inventory, reporting etc. so some portions of the
closed loop are sometimes run manually, so also DRP can trigger chaos if fed
with incorrect information.

There are different kinds of CO types, where 1 is default. Some CO can be
entered using codes that tells BPCS that it is to be satisfied by RO in a
particular other division. You end up with orders which have 2 warehouses,
the FROM warehouse with the order need to be satisfied, and the TO warehouse
where the inventory is to go after it has been created. The two warehouses
can be in different division facilities.

We used a CO type which bypassed standard accounting, since we did not want
one division to be sending A/R invoices to another division's A/P, we wanted
the cost of inventory to flow smoothly across divisions, which worked.

I suggest you view DRP documentation, to see if that solves your needs.

We needed a more complicated setup to handle what BPCS calls RO, and other
people call drop ship, when the other division was not on BPCS.

Thanks, Alister. Congrats on your retirement and I hope it goes well for
you.

Unfortunately, we don't have licence to the DRP module and cannot get it due
to the strained relationship we have with Infor.

And the division that we want to be able to do this at dose not use MRP,
although I guess they could start for the buy/sell items.
