# Bar Stock

In 6.1, the dimension inventory creates a relationship between your
inventory unit of measure (IUM) and the dimensional unit's(DUM). It
knows how many 12 ft bars and 20 ft bars you have, but it still
calculates demand in terms of IUM. If you have 2 - 12ft bars and 1 -
20ft bar, you can see that in Vantage. If you need 100 inches,
demand shows 100 inches instead of a portion of a 12ft bar. (I
think the logic behind this is that Vantage can't know which bar you
really want to pull.) You issue by the DUM, so if you pull a 12ft
bar for the 100 inch demand, Vantage shows 144 inches being pulled
out of inventory and the job receiving 144 inches. You then can
return the excess, leave it on the job or scrap it.

Bear in mind that the DUM's have to be created up front. If you
want to return the 44inch section from the above example, you have
to go back to Part Maintenance screen to set up a new DUM first.
(We have a "Unknown" DUM for "drops".)

I wanted to get an idea of how people handle bar stock.

We have bar stock that could be 35-30ft long. We purchase it inLBS and we inventory it in pieces.

How are other people handling bar stock? Do you store it in inventory as LBS or FT or do you store it as pieces?

The problem we have is that since we store it in inventory as pieces, you can't look at a bar stock and count how many pieces it makes. You would have to know what the conversion is and make measurements.

We do the same as you do with the exception of tubing. Tubing is
inventoried as ft. Our bar stock comes in 12' lengths. In order to
calculate the pieces it makes I designed a vb form used in Job Entry and
Quote Entry (under material) that calculates this based on the cutoff and
scrap amounts keyed in. The part length is then used to calculate the
pieces per bar. We use these figures to backflush the material used as
labor qty's are entered. Our inventory is actually more accurate this way
and we eliminated the need for a shop secretary who used to manually keep
track of material usage. Hope this helps.

Being in the UK, we tend to use metres, or (randoms for pipe), although
occasionally we still use imperial measures!

The big headache is that you might have 20 lengths of material , 3
metres/feet long, and need to use varying lengths for each job. If you book
it out by the actual length required, you can end up with Vantage telling
you you have 10 metres/feet in hand, when each one might only be 1 cm/inch
long, and no good for man or beast!

We end up booking half or full lengths to each job, so we tend to have more
on the shelf than Vantage knows about, and then visually assess what is
there as we use it.

We do molded rubber products, we're Pounds/Pieces for everything, so this
may be a naive suggestion. What if you created part numbers for ranges of
length, with enough windage in real world application so the guys on the
floor don't have to actually measure, or use a pre-calculated table for your
floor guys to reference at weigh up.

Subject: [Vantage] Bar Stock

I wanted to get an idea of how people handle bar stock.

We have bar stock that could be 35-30ft long. We purchase it inLBS and we
inventory it in pieces.

How are other people handling bar stock? Do you store it in inventory as
LBS or FT or do you store it as pieces?

The problem we have is that since we store it in inventory as pieces, you
can't look at a bar stock and count how many pieces it makes. You would
have to know what the conversion is and make measurements.

We do molded rubber products, we're Pounds/Pieces for everything, so this

Being in the UK, we tend to use metres, or (randoms for pipe), although
occasionally we still use imperial measures!

The big headache is that you might have 20 lengths of material , 3
metres/feet long, and need to use varying lengths for each job. If you
book
it out by the actual length required, you can end up with Vantage telling
you you have 10 metres/feet in hand, when each one might only be 1 cm/inch
long, and no good for man or beast!

We end up booking half or full lengths to each job, so we tend to have
more
on the shelf than Vantage knows about, and then visually assess what is
there as we use it.

Shirley,

You're up early aren't you?

We do hold some raw material in different part numbers for different
lengths, but that's primarily how we buy it in. I hadn't thought of
transferring off-cuts from one part number to another - A good idea!

Early yes, my day starts at 3:30 and I remote in to work to check system
status while I have my first cup of coffee. We do something similar with
rubber. Some rubber materials are recoverable, as we process these
materials we have "Salvage" set up to recover the process waste as that part
number. Salvage might work with specific parts that have a consistent off
cut, but how you might recover "off cuts" of "off cuts" I don't know.

I thought that is what dimensional inventory does for you, isn't it? It holds
stock in different units of measure under the same part number. You can store
full bars and then have ft/in/m for the off-fall that goes back into stock.
This is a feature of Vantage that I haven't seen in other ERP packages. Is
there a reason not to use dimensional inventory? (I'm not sure which version
of Vantage it appeared though.)

Mark W.
Mark,

Can you elaborate more in this dimensional inventory. I don't see any information in Vantage on it.

Thanks,
Jasper

Jasper,

With very few exceptions, we purchase bar, rod, sheet, tube, and
pipe by the foot / sq ft and inventory by inch / sq in.

Exception 1: There are a few parts that we purchase from specific
vendors, referencing their specific part number for a piece. We
either purchase in pieces and convert or purchase in feet, but
reference the conversion in the part description.

Exception 2: We have a rod machined on one end that we purchase in
2 lengths. We elected to use the Dimensional Inventory feature of
6.1 (unsure what version you are on). When issued to a job, an
entire piece is issued (based on best fit of what is available), the
machined end used with the specific length required by the job and
the "drop" is scrapped under a different part number (unmachined
version). We have recently uncovered a bug dealing with DMR's and
dimensional inventory (see post from last week). It is handy to
know how many 12ft and 20ft pieces we have, but the bug is making us
reconsider our process.

On a side note, for unusual conversions between IUM and PUM such as
Bottles to Ounces, we include the conversion ratio in the part
description. It helps clear up any confusion during inventory time.

I've only just started V.8 but on the part screen there's a tab called
"Dimensions". The fields are dimension; description; conversion factor; DUM,
Dimensional Unit of Measure; and a default check box. In the training
database, there's a good example part: BS-15000. It shows:

Default Description Conversion Factor DUM
X 12 Feet (Full Bar) 1.0 BR
9 FT 1.333 9F
6 FT 2.0 6F
3 FT 4.0 3F

If you look at the inventory on hand, it shows how much inventory is in full
bars, 9-foot pieces, 6-foot, etc. You are prompted for the dimension when the
part is issued and received. I am told (by pre-sales people - where's my grain
of salt?...) that MRP is smart enough to use dimensions. So if the BOM asks
for 3 3F bars and there is one 12 ft bar on hand then it knows it has enough
material.

As I said, I see that this capability exists but it does add some complexity
to your life. Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should - like
defining every room as a warehouse and every 12 sq in each room as a different
bin. ;-) But it's out there in V.8 and I'm pretty sure in V.6.

We are on 5.1 and dimensional inventory is shown on the part but this
is also a security item for part maintenance. If you are in part
master and select a part then you can search help under track
dimensional.
