Backorders

Would consider sharing that BAQ with us? We have been trying to
build one but are running into problems with tables not wanting to
communicate with one another.

To all,
How do other Vantage users manage backorders? Wouldn't it be neat if
Vantage had a global alert that would send an email when something
that is backordered is recveived into inventory?

In Vantage 4.0 if something is backordered, it is indicated only on
the packing slip. We use a manual system of printed sales orders and
a keen eye on daily receipts. Is there an easier way?



Thanks!!

Andrew
Andrew,

We have many situations where a global alert would be nice, but is not
available. To deal with situations like that we typically write exception
reports in Crystal that are delivered automatically by e-mail. So, for
example, you could write a report that includes only backordered materials
that were received yesterday or today and suppress printing if there are no
records. If you don't have it already, you can get our Crystal Report
scheduling tool here to make all of this happen automatically:

This report shows every open order. What I am looking for is anything
that is on backorder. ie: We ship half of the parts, half are on
backorder and we are waiting for materials so we can ship.

I want to see those orders that we partially ship and have backorders on.

Anything like that?

Thanks,
Ben

That report will show the remaining quantity of what has not shipped.
Granted, it does not show you the original amount of the sales order, but it
will show you the remainder.

what if you change the dates...for instance run the report for 6/30/05
in all the date fields to see only orders that were scheduled to ship on
or before June 30 that didn't ship.

You could use the Scheduled Shipments report through yesterday, which would
show all open orders due to ship through yesterday. If you want to see
original quantity, shipped quantity and balance quantity, or the value of
the shipments, that would be a custom open order, scheduled shipments, or
order backlog report depending on the format you prefer.

Thanks, I understand that.

What I am looking for is a report that does not show new orders, just
backorders (parts that were due to ship, and partials went out.)

The sales dept would like a simple report showing backorders. The
backlog doesn't work because it shows orders that haven't been shipped
mixed with backorders.

I just need something that reminds them that there is something on
backorder, so when the parts arrive, they know they can ship.

Thanks,
Ben

Not sure. We are still on 5.2 and when we ship from stock it shows
shipped
qty and back-order qty correctly.

The qty has to be on the same release, if part of the qty in on a
different
release it is not a back-order.

I have an order for 100 pcs, and we only have 50. When I change the
packslip to reflect 50, it does show that there is a back-order of 50
pcs.



How can I report these backorders? How does anyone else handle

Oh, I don't know of any std report like that, but it would be a pretty easy
one to write since all the info regarding order qty and shipped qty is in
the orderrel table.

I have to agree with Sarah,
This should be as easy as OrderRel table,
Filter on Company = ...
OpenRelease = yes,
and OurJobShippedQty + OurStockShippedQty > 0
and OurJobShippedQty + OurStockShippedQty < OurReqQty.
Show OurReqQty - OurJobShippedQty - OurStockShippedQty as BackOrder
Quantity.
Part Number and Release are also in the table, so a simple BackOrder Report
should be trivial.
Good luck,

We handle this by just checking off the taxable flag on the PO if we know
the item is taxable. Then accounting handles adding in the sales tax when
they the invoice. They add it as a misc charge - we have one for taxes. If
you wanted to add them at po entry you could do it through misc. charge for
taxes there.

Thanks, I will give it a shot!

Another one, if there isn't any field for taxes in PO Entry, how are
they to be accounted for?

Thanks,

Hello,

We are currently in the final stage of implementation for Vantage 8.03
and just met with an Epicor consultant yesterday. One of our concerns
is the inability for the system to generate backorders efficiently and
effectively. Our consultant (who is typically a great resource) stated
that "backorders are old technology" and that we should not even be
discussing the topic! However, in our business, backorders do happen
and we cannot get our arms around how to handle them in this system.

Can anyone share there opinions/experiences in this arena?

thank you for your time,

Is your trouble with back orders or back-order paperwork? Vantage certainly
keeps track of what needs to be shipped but if you have a shipping department
that has to have a copy of the sales order on file then that's a different
story - and we have that story...

Our solution was to create:

1.) A BAQ that shows open orders that have a record in the invoice file
(indicating a shipment).

2.) A modified version of the sales order form that only prints open line
items.

Once a day someone runs the BAQ and selects the orders that were shipped and
prints them out.

I would agree with your consultant that, if you're like us, keeping a paper
document out in the shipping department is a bad idea. About once a month a
shipment is made to the wrong location or via an incorrect shipping method
because the document did not match what was online.

Hi Mark,

Thanks so much for your suggestion. You are right in that we do not
want pieces of paper floating around in shipping, confusing the
clerks. There is no way for us to get around backorders since our
product is extremely custom and often we ship partials in an effort
to satisfy customer requirements as quick as possible--our customers
understand and often expect that backorders are part of the deal.

Our consultant suggested deleting the open line on an order and
creating a new release for the backordered part--however, the issue
with this method is that all of the labor/mat'l attached to the
original job would also need to be deleted and new labor/mat'l would
have to be issued to the new release.

thanks, again, for taking the time to reply. have a good day,
Diane
