Inactive parts Blank Title 142088

Some information I tested on 9.05.702A:  A BPM on the EWB would work.  If INACTIVE then Popup.

 

In our CIT Meeting, it was asked what EPICOR will do with an Inactive Part.

 

Here is a summary of what I tested in our Test Server.

 

Summary:

Quote Entry:  Cannot quote, Pop-up Error

Order Entry:   Can enter after Pop-up Warning

Engineering WorkBench:  Can enter inactive part without warning

Job Entry Manual > Get Details with Inactive material:  Cannot get details, Error Pop-up.

Job Entry Manual > Add Material: Cannot Add material, Error Pop-up.

Quick Job Entry:  Won’t create job. Error Pop-up

Purchase Order Entry:  cannot Enter line, Error Pop-up

MRP:  Does not process individual demand; Will not create job with inactive Material(Suggestion appears in Planner Workbench).

 

Sound like we SHOULD NOT inactive parts.

 

EPICORS info after I called them:

RESPONSE FROM DEVELOPMENT:

By design, working correct.  MRP acknowledges that the part exists, is Inactive, and then moves on.

By design an Inactive part will still be processed by MRP, it briefly looks at the part to see if there is any information to process per its Time Phase, writes information to the logs about it and proceeds on to the next part.  The Inactive checkbox keeps the part from appearing in Part search lists; if the Time Phase has information for demand requirements and supply receipts, it will be processed like any other part that is still Active. but unfirm jobs and suggestions, both Purchasing and Manufacturing, will not be created for it.

Yes, a simple BPM would probably be the best solution.

Is it possible to change the settings in E9 so that inactive parts can neither be ordered nor entered into a BoM?  (Version 9.05.702A)

 

If so, which settings would be affected? Thank you!

In 10 there is an Inactive check box in the part master. If it is not there in 9, then what we did when we were on that version was type in the part description "DO NOT USE", make sure inventory was zero and check the run out box.

Then when we were ready we would mass delete or replace the old part number from the BOMs.

HTH,

Hi, Manasa –

 

Yes, there is an Inactive box in my version of E9, but when I check it, parts are neither prevented from being ordered nor from being added to active BoMs. It really doesn’t seem to be doing much of anything. I was wondering if there was some setting behind the scenes I might be missing. (I will try the “run out” option, hadn’t thought of that, thanks!)

You could write BPMs to do this pretty easily.

We're on 9.05.700c, it won't let us add material to a BOM that's marked inactive. This is in quote/job entry specifically, not engineering workbench - maybe that's the difference?

If it's engineering workbench, a BPM would be a pretty easy solution here.
