Let me add my 2-cents worth for PaperLess. We are on XA4 and OS400 v4r2, also. We have PLMC and are using "cheap" PCs with (expensive) touchscreens on the shop floor. (Plus, <satisfied customer plug> we put the PCs and monitors in environmental boxes from Envirosafe Technologies, Jacksonville, Fl 32246, http://www.dustshield.com/intro.htm) They have worked very well for us. I'm not sure how many employees use the touch screens and how many go ahead and use the keyboard and mouse (we have both on each PC) to justify the additional expense of the touch screen technology. PLMC is now owned by, and you purchase it from, MAPICS. It has three modules, MDCC (ISE's old "PaperLess" - data collection on shop floor), TMPS (ISE's tool tracking), and QRMS(ISE's quality management). We bought the first two modules from ISE when they still owned it, and <gripe> I am not pleased with the price MAPICS is wanting to charge us to purchase the last third! Since March 1, 2000, we have collected our T&A for all hourly employees using PLMC/MDCC; we have been adding Job On/Off by department since then (almost finished). By the way, the biggest problems we have had is not with the PaperLess product, but with the limitations in XA4's PMC module (which you must have for any T&A and Job On/Off solution, not just PaperLess). Out-of-shift problems have been the biggest issue - again in PMC, not PLMC. I understand this particular issue is resolved in XA 6.0 (maybe in 5.5?). Good luck with your selection process and implementation.
