Dear Bob
This can be easily done using a customised script and ecm
inventory process. This will be fully automated process with no manual
keying the data either in INV500 or excel file and more accurate as it uses
BPCS/Lx in-build solution. Pls let me know if any query.


Regards,

manual data entry pain

Dear Robert,



Replies from Mr. Bilgen and Al Mac confirm our conclusion that a
considerable amount of manually-entered inventory transaction activity will
be needed to solve this.

There is no way within BPCS to prohibit the use of an active location by
specific items. So, it's necessary to deactivate your bad locations and to
do that, all inventory quantities will first have to be removed or moved.
The simplest method would be to remove or zero out invalid locations with a
cycle count type of transaction, but that does not handle actual inventory
that may exist. So a better alternative would be to transfer any existing
inventory found in the bad/fictitious locations into valid locations.

Here's an idea to greatly reduce the pain of manually entering a high volume
of transactions. Our Lickety-Split software transports rows of Excel data
into iSeries green screen apps (in this case INV500) as if it were being
keypunched. It's lightning fast with zero fat thumb errors .... and .... all
the edit checking in the green screen application is still performed. It's
slick.

Automating the INV500 entry effort with Lickety-Split makes the inventory
clean-up extremely quick .... before more inventory arrives in the bad
location by accident.

Additional research may be needed to see what is causing your inventory to
get into the bad locations in the first place. If it is arriving from open
shop orders or allocations, those may also need to be taken care of before
locations can be deactivated.

Robert, You can always run INV970 which will delete all records from the
lot, location, and container files (ILN, ILI, and YCI) that do not have any
inventory and do not have any activity. However it doesn't sound like that
is the activity you want to do. There is no system program available to
remove a single item from the location inventory - you will need to do this
manually. Here are the steps that BPCS takes before removing records (in
INV970). It would be a good idea to follow the same edit checks for the
records you want to remove manually.

Subject: [BPCS-L] Deleting an Inventory Location



A manager at one of our plants sent me the question below. As far as I know
the answer to his question is No, but I thought I'd ask the experts here on
BPCS-L.



We are on BPCS 5.1.



(Unfortunately, we moved our headquarters to a new building a year ago and
were forced to ditch all hard-copy BPCS documentation prior to the move.)



Thanks in advance.



Best regards,

Is it possible to delete an inventory location in BPCS for an individual
part number? If so, please advise.



Background Info: We have numerous parts with multiple locations that are no

longer used. We also have a couple of a couple of fictitious locations

(e.g., BAN and PAN) we want to get rid of. We think we know how to mass

delete location from the system, but all items have to be at zero qty. We

would like to remove the locations as we come across them for individual

items. An example is part number U35A02001. You can see from the

transactions below that we reported a shop order on 3/21 and then

transferred the inventory from BAN to FM0105 on 3/27. It would have been

great at that time to the delete BAN as a location for this line item.

Trans Ref No Whse/Loc Quantity Date

Balance Lot

T 30 FM0105 1.000

3/27/17 1.000

T 30 BAN

1.000- 3/27/17

PR 52698 30 BAN 1.000

3/21/17 1.000



FYI - we have recently started an aggressive cycle counting program and are
constantly running into these BAN and PAN locations, which have no physical

location in the warehouse. Inaccurate or poorly labeled warehouse

locations, part identification, and shop order reporting issues so far have

been the primary reasons for our count discrepanices. We want to clean up

the locations both in BPCS and in the plant.



Thanks in advance for the assistance.

Nice plug, but wouldn't you have to key the data into Excel?
So, I can key the data into INV500 manually, with it's interactive edit
checks, or, I can key the data into Excel without any edit checks and then
pump it up with your software and then let the edit checks happen.

I can only see this being an advantage if I had some method of an
intelligent automated process which would dump out the necessary
corrections, convert that into Excel, and then pump it up with your
software.
