Implement the MES application for use on the shop floor and have the operators start/stop work orders and enter qty complete and then RM's at the last operation.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Automation of RM's

Someone has to of already solved this problem. We are on version XA 7.7, green screen and PowerLink.

We are manually keying all of our RM's at the end of the day after our packing department shift is complete. As things are complete we have a person writing down the items, and accumulating the paperwork during the day. After the shift is complete, all of the paperwork is accumulated and given to a person to manually enter the RM's.

How has anyone else created a more effecient process, to get the RM's entered in more real-time so that we don't have shipping inventory issues.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
