6.1 Customer Shipment

If you are shipping from jobs, maybe an operation for packaging or something
like that prior to the shipping or final quantity operation. That would be
for the certs to be associated with the shipment. Then in Job Management
Master, you could activate the Shop warning(s) "Previous operation has not
completed" and/or "Previous operation has not started." This won't prevent
the shipment, but would at least send up a flag.

There is no "lock" for shipping. You could restrict who has access to
the "Shipped" check box. It's not a perect solution. - Monte Tomerlin

I have been asked by our quality department to pose this question to
the group:

Is there a way to lock down one shipment (as standard procedure or
automatically) on specific parts due to additional info that needs to
go with the shipment, such as certifications? Then, when
certifications are received by shipping, they unlock shipment of the
part.

Does anyone know of a way to do this? Any help you could give me would
be greatly appreciated.

One approach might be to use a user defiend field on the Part table as a "lock required" indicator and then on the Shipment a VB form field to indicate yes/no for unlocking. Then in Crystal use these to control what prints (or not) on the packing slip. If everything is not OK the packing slip could simply have a HUGE message...."not ready to ship yet, get certs" instead of the normal text. This would not control the shipped status but could prevent the actual shipment without the proper paperwork. I do something similar for RoHS statements on the packing slip. You might even be able to print a comment field from the Part UD fields that says what is required and the presence of this text could be the Part table flag.

Unless I'm missing the point about who it is that unlocks the shipment.
