Unallocated Stock Status    

Started By  taadams2000
I am currently working with a hospital that is having some inventory control issues.  I do understand that you either allocate online (when the requisition is released) or in batch (when the batch program is run). We are seeing several items that have 'unallocated' quantities showing up in demand balances/stock status report.  Does this happen when you have alloaction set up via the batch method instead of allocation at the time of req submittal For instance, if you are allocating in batch me...

IC12 Preferred Bin    

Started By  Kurt L Guldner
Looking to see if anyone knows of any downsides to having multiple items within the same preferred bin within IC12.  It has always been our standard to no allow this but we have some customers who are wanting to do this so they can prep labels for conversions.  I know that IC81 doesn't allow it but IC12 does.  Thank you for any insight.

MSCM QOO (Quantity On Order)    

Started By  Johnmac
Hello, We use MSCM handhelds to scan and replenish supplies in IC81 parcarts. In MSCM, Display QOO and Inherit are checked off. Issue: supplies are showing a value for QOO even though there are no open orders (all POs have been received). Is there a way to investigate QOO, for these locations, in Lawson Lawson ver:   Thanks, John

Inventory Period at Month End    

Started By  brupp
Hello - Wondering how others deal with this - AP closes a month on the last business day, but we often have activity in MSCM the next day, & the next day may or may not be the first of the month.  This has happened a couple times now, resulting in an Inventory Period is closed for this date error.   How to resolve  Thanks.

ED40 List Names

Is there some place that has a list of all the List Name options that can be used  ie O_VENDOR, I_COMPANY  I have a vendor that wants only a two character country code and was hoping I could setup a ED40 record to convert USA to US in the 850.

Changing vendor 's    

Started By  LaDora
With Kreisers now becoming Concordance, we need to change all of our vendor numbers.  They used to use the mfg for the vendor , but now they have given each item its own individual .  Is there any easy way to change this is PO25  Or do I need to put each item on HOLD and give it a new vendor   (I cannot just change the vendor in PO25 that I can tell.)  I would also like to put the numbers into PO13 (vendor items.) Once I put an item on HOLD, does it just stay that way forever I have ...

Lawson PO Numbers    

Started By  Mike DeBenedictis
Hi, I am a new user and had a question. Has anyone had issues with vendors that read a PO as 11111-0-BILL = with the '-0-' We use GHX and for some reason when we change an EDI order to email it transmits the '-0-' and was just wondering if there is a way around it.  Thanks for your assistance,   Mike

Service Contract Process    

Started By  Ann
Might you share the process to issue a Service Contract to a vendor  Do orders originate in Requisition Center and if so, can you describe the hand off from the Contract Manager to the end user department  When the PO20 is issued to the vendor, is the countersigned contract attached to the PO20 or does the countersigned contract get to the vendor in another way Do you have a mechanism to include attachments to a Purchase Order

Best Practices for Storing Customer Account Numbers    

Started By  mr shickadance
Hi,  We currently store our vendor's customer's numbers in our purchase froms via AP10.2/PO10.2 but encountering issues where the PO is splitting if the purchase from differs on a rec with multiple lines.  We are storing that account information for the buyers in our organization, but wondering if there is a better way to store the numbers within Infor. It's purely informationaly and for us, seemingly does not drive anything but it does cause issues in generating the PO.    I found t...

Hello, I have a warehouse where all of the items switched to Movement Class 1 after running the IC150.  I found that for this one warehouse all of the ACCUM-PERCENT values on the report were 0.  Does anyone have any background on this and where that value comes from so I can resolve  IC150 is setup the same for every one of our warehouses so i'm unsure why this one would have returned this value and updated our movement classes. Thank you.

Special spend as a of total spend?    

Started By  SCMaster-jk2
We recently had a presentation by a vendor who analyzed our PO History and showed a large percentage of our spend was due to items ordered as a special. This was somewhat concerning but I could see justification for it in a way (most of the specials were rare, high cost items, such as a certain size screw, plates, etc).   I was wondering, could anyone kind of give me a ball park of what your special spend is compared to overall spend People here are trying to focus on keeping this to a mini...

IC234 ITL-SOH    

Started By  Kurt L Guldner
We currently run our IC234 at midnight of Month End and it was pointed out to me by one of our Supply Chain Directors that there are items that are inactive showing up with ITL-SOH value.  In researching I found this true and cannot find anywhere an actual SOH Value and some of these items have been inactive for quite some time.  Has anyone else run into this issue or know where the report may be pulling these values from  Thank you.

MSCM Andriod version update    

Started By  kyle
We are currently on v9 of Lawson and of MSCM, and have heard there was an updated version of MSCM that is now available that supports the Android platform.  Is there anyone that has this new version installed and using an Android device  I need to review new hardware options, but wanted to get input/opinions on the Android options because of the lower cost and more options for devices.  Have you had many issues with the new version of MSCM or the Android capability.

Requisitions from one warehouse to another    

Started By  Kat V
I could have sworn we had done this in the past with no issues.  Item Loc R and Item Loc SCM both have Item A in stock.  R is out and needs to pull from SCM instead of the normal vendor.  There is a template with From Location SCM.  R puts in a Req for that item from that template.  SCM gets a WH130 Pick Ticket and Finish/Releases it.  SCM stock on hand decrements normally but R's stock on hand never increases. What are we doing wrong I have an open Infor Incident that is going in circles...

MSCM - label printing    

Started By  NeilG
Hello all - when printing labels out of MSCM in v11 the labels print in a random order assigned by Infor. When we were on v10 we were able to control the print order and have the labels print by item .  This is casuing a disruption of our work flow as users have to sift through hundreds of labels before finding the correct one as opposed to them being in item order.  Infor has advised that users cannot control the print order of the labels and have suggested entering an enhancment request.  ...
