The answer is a qualified yes.

Here is the question that will clarify the answer: Does engineering follow best practice and change part numbers when form/fit/function changes? If the answer is yes, then you don't have an issue or a need for such a feature.

If the answer is no, then is engineering up-reving the item. (i.e. change from Revision A to B). If so, then what is the disposition process during the engineering change control process? It is not best practice to say that there is a revision change, (i.e. process to build the unit has changed (routing and/or BOM change) but no change in form/fit/function of the item)and it matters which one you sell or use (issue to work orders). If it matters which revision is shipped. Or it matters that inventory by revision is kept seperate, then most likely the change control process is not adequately dispositioning the items correctly.

I'd first look at the business processes.

Then if you find that there is some unusual need, yes XA at R9 is able to differentiate the inventory.

subject: [MAPICS-L] R9 Green screen and Release 10

To clarify - the entire green screen application still exists at release 9, and is still supported at Release 9. For release 10, the green screen application will be discontinued entirely. Release 10 will have some of the IDF Level 1 content remaining, which means there will still be some underlying RPG programs. However, there will be no RPG programs available for any object that is in the full Power-Link architecture (IDF Level 2).

Additionally, we have delayed Release 10 until 2012, and will deliver as much of the Power-Link application as possible at release 9. PCMs delivered in 2011 for release 9 will have additional Power-Link objects delivered with the PCM. Think of it as service packs for Release 9. This will give customers who FLEX Upgrade more time to make the transition to browser applications - and provide additional enhancements without requiring an upgrade.

Release 9 will see significant additional functionality added over the next 18 months, including Infor products like MyDay, ION, Performance Management, F9, Enterprise Asset Management, and (hopefully) Product Lifecycle Management. Additional partner products are also under consideration, to add to the three Solution Partner products added over the last 12 months.
