Build Documents - Copy Back to Sales Order Lines

 

Bill of Materials allows the ability to create Works Order from Sales Order lines for Assembly Stock Items, once the Works Order has been created however the link is only used for reference purposes.  This new feature allows for the build document to copy selected items back to the order line – this could include the likes of the build date and build quantity.

 

Installation

 

Document Design Manager

 

The copy items are defined within the Bill of Materials document parameters.  

 

Where Bill of Materials is linked to Sales Order Processing the Copy Data Items Between Data Filesincludes a series of additional prompts to allow copy items back to the Sales Order Detail database.

 

To update select Installationfrom the main menu followed by Application Manager and then Document Design Manager.  Select the Bill of Materials application and then the Build Works Order document type before selecting the document number to be amended and the document mask will be displayed.  

 

Select the Parameters option from the ribbon / toolbar and then use the Action button to move to parameter screen 15.

 

Reference the data items on the Works Order Header and Sales Order Detail file as required.  

 

Note copy items from the W/O Header to the S/O Line are actioned after the build updates the works order so copy values can include the likes of the build quantity / date / reference etc.

 

Issue Components Only – Omit Batch Selection

 

Bill of Material ‘Build’ documents can be configured so that the issue of the components and the build of the finished item are processed separately – this can be useful with longer lead times for builds, components required are issued from stock but the build of the finished item is later.

 

When issuing components, the system still prompts for the build item and, if batch/serial tracked, asks for the batch code of the item being built.  This new facility allows the system to suppress input of the finished item serial/batch code when processing an issue only document.

 

Installation

 

Document Design

 

Additional options have been added to the parameters within the BOM document definition to allow the omission of the batch code for the issue only document.  

 

To update select Installationfrom the main menu followed by Application Manager and then Document Design Manager.  

 

Select the Bill of Materials application and then the Build Works Order document type before selecting the document number to be amended and the document mask will be displayed. Select the Parameters option from the ribbon / toolbar and then use the Action button to move to parameter screen 13.

 

If Issue-only, then omit Build Item Batch / Serial – if set for Issue Component Stock Only above set this option to omit prompt for the batch/serial code for the finished item.

 

Detail Pick Lists – Time Entry on Edit Action

 

This feature allows, when used in the Edit action on detail pick lists, the system to recognise a N-type data item as being used to record time in HH:MM format and format the display accordingly.  During edit the system will allow use of the ‘T’ key to record the current time and will validate that the value entered is a valid time.

 

Installation

 

Database Changes

 

The system will apply the time formatting to any N/Y type data item where the data item name begins ‘TIME’ (any case) – for example TIME-START / TIME-END / Time-Start etc. The system only applies the format during the edit action, the value stored and reported remains the standard N/Y time value (so 23:59 will be saved as 2359
