Joan, It's more or less the nature of the beast, as far as we could ever tell. We chose to handle it procedurally - we didn't allow the floor workers to close out the operations, we had the supervisors do it after checking to be sure all transactions had been processed. This reduced the hassles somewhat, at the cost of putting an extra delay on the closeout of the operations. Maybe someone else has found a better solution. Dave Shaw MAPICS-L Moderator Spartan International, Inc. Spartanburg, SC -----Original Message----- From: McCready, Joan [mailto:Joan.McCready@metaltekint.com] To all - Does anyone have any tips or techniques for the timely processing of PMC transactions that are gathered using a shop floor collection program (we are using PLMC - aka PaperLess - but the problems we're having are in PMC, not in the collection). We seem to have a timing issue. We give the supervisors until 10:00 am to "fix" the previous days' transactions, then our payroll dept processes the select and edit and prepare. After the prepare, the payroll clerk runs a select and edit to see what didn't get "fixed." One of the recurring problems is where two or more people work on an operation on an MO on the same day. Employee #1 has some sort of error, so none of his transactions are processed. Employee #2 has no errors - her transactions are posted. Thing is - she completed and closed the operation. Once we fix employee #1's error - which was on a different MO's transaction - his transactions still don't post, because now the operation is closed for the MO both employees worked on. So we re-open the operation and perform yet another select-and-edit to post employee #1's transactions. It may take several hours to get everything posted, and then the payroll clerk is "guessing" that the corrections are really OK - since the supervisors are too busy or may even be finished with their shift and gone. Each leadman or supervisor would have literally thousands of operations to wade through each day - they run the "errors only" report, but more times than most, the problem causing the error isn't the error itself, and their attempt to "fix" the "error" screws up the employee's transactions worse! We don't have MAPICS' Payroll module. Does anyone have any suggestions, or is this just the nature of the "beast" called PMC?? -- Joan Joan McCready, IS Manager phone: 636-479-4499 The Carondelet Corporation fax: 636-479-3399 A MetalTek International Company www.metaltekint.com 8600 Commercial Blvd Pevely, MO 63070 +--- | This is the MAPICS Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MAPICS-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MAPICS-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MAPICS-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
