Mfg acct is what used to be called cost accounting.  We installed
SCM(thruput) and are embracing theory of constraints ideology at our plant.
The concept of thruput is that we don't care about cost dollars, just
thruput dollars.  So they renamed departments and titles, etc.

Love the levity... we have what seems to be (millions) of SOX police here
also.  Beyond ridiculous!  We can't go to the bathroom without someone
signing off a piece of paper!

   never heard of mfg acct as one dept ??   SOX - what does baseball have to
   do with it...



   just wanted to add some levity....



   Seriously, this is usually a coordinated attempt with a point person
   assign....to be sure all task are completed, usually someone from acct,
   they are the one that get anal about month end cutoffs (G/L)  sorry  acct
   folks.....  lol     I have not experienced any hard and fast rules.... as
   to who pushes the button to close each module.  But, there is some
   coordination between modules that needs to occur, COM needs to close
   before SA, and IM etc..... just my 2 cents.

     Sounds like a SOX company....
     Most companies I do work at. It is either I.T or Acctg. or both...

     Manufacturing accounting closes the IM module, billing closes COM ,

     IT does not do Infor menu options except CAS (security & backups,
     reorgs,
     etc.). And we only key in the security managers in other departments
     tell
     us, we do not make the decisions on who has what security.

     Good Morning List,

     We're reevaluating some responsibilities, and are wondering about
     month-end closeouts. What department at your company is typically
     responsible for performing MAPICS month end closeouts?
